When did you first attend the SODEM protest outside Parliament and why did you come? 

I first came to SODEM in November 2018, and never left, to actively campaign to stop Brexit, as I’m not a keyboard warrior.

Roughly how old are you?

54 when I first came.

How frequently did you come and when was the last time you attended?

Became full time member by end of November 2018 and part of core support team.

How far from Westminster do you live and what was your travelling time?

Initially 90 miles away, which took 2 and a half hours by train. Later I stayed in the SODEM house during the week, travelling home at end of week.

What’s your favourite memory?

On the green at 6am with Steve and Ian Howes as we bobbled a toy ferry up and down behind sky news is one.  Another was the impromptu SODEM on a Friday when Theresa may resigned and running to Downing Street just in time to shout ‘Stop Brexit!’ as she headed back into Number 10. But beyond anything my favourite memory is the camaraderie, particularly of those that lived in the house. Good times and bad, but a true bond that was formed

Tell me your story

I was a co-founder of Veterans for Europe, but immediately found my home at SODEM after my first visit. I was very late to the Remain campaign, but I’m proud I did everything I could to stop Brexit.
