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

I can’t remember – I migrated from the N°10 Vigil.

Roughly how old are you?


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

Depended – sometimes 3 times a week.

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

8 miles – 1.5 hrs on the bus.

What’s your favourite memory?

Short march to Downing St when the North Yorks group came down with their brass band.  I also enjoyed shouting at Rees-Mogg twice, “Fake toff. Your father was a hack”.

Tell me your story

Brexit has made me the angriest I have ever been. I had never protested about anything until this. To see how appalling lies and lawbreaking have been allowed to triumph has made me angry, ashamed and has destroyed my faith and patriotism in this country.  I started attending the N°10 Vigil once a week after work but when my circumstances changed and I no longer had a job, I tried to find time to go to Parliament to support SODEM.  I can’t leave this country unfortunately, but would like to. I fear for our future. Britain is a failed state.
