What’s your favourite memory?
Being outnumbered by unpleasant Brexiteers when suddenly the jolly Yorkshire contingent swept in with a musical parade singing ‘your Brexit Deal is crap’ to the tune of ‘On Ilkley moor by tat’.

Tell me your story
Hitherto completely unpolitical – retired Art teacher – very sad to leave the EU. Not only have I spent the last decade of vacations travelling freely with van and tent, all over Europe (last year all the way to the Black Sea!) but I also attended the British Institute as a student in Paris (then part of the Sorbonne) way back in 1964. I have always loved the ethos of European values and internationalism . . .
