When did you first attend the SODEM protest outside Parliament and why did you come?
I can’t remember the date, but it wasn’t long after my first anti-Brexit march. I’d made friends with Ian Howes and Louise Hummerstone from Kent and it kinda went from there. I never used to be all that political, but I had to stand up against the foolishness of Brexit.
Roughly how old are you?
How frequently did you come and when was the last time you attended?
Sadly due to work patterns and long hours I couldn’t come half as much as I wanted to. To be honest I can’t remember the last time I came.
How far from Westminster do you live and what was your travelling time?
I live in North Kent and it would take me roughly an hour and a half.
What’s your favourite memory?
Watching all of May’s defeats in Parliament and making the front page of the New European (a rather unflattering picture though).
Tell me your story
As I have mentioned above, I’ve never really been that political. Beyond having thoughts on things, nothing has ever driven me to raise my voice or take a stand like Brexit has. I can remember queuing to vote and looking around at all the other people, knowing the area I lived in at the time and actually begin to feel dread that we’re actually going to lose this vote because of major misunderstandings and stereotypes. I feel absolutely ashamed to be British right now.
