When did you first attend the SODEM protest outside Parliament and why did you come?
When Johnson tried to prorogue parliament. I came from France especially. I’d had enough of watching it on the TV and being unable to do anything.
Roughly how old are you?
68 I think
How frequently did you come and when was the last time you attended?
I came twice, but then had to go to a funeral, then back to France where I live.
How far from Westminster do you live and what was your travelling time?
About 700 kilometres. Takes a day when things go well. Can be longer, as I won’t fly. I had to go back and stop overnight in Canterbury. Could have done with a floor to sleep on in London. Then I could have stayed longer.
What’s your favourite memory?
Nothing favourite. Its awful. I liked seeing Steve in the flesh. Even my French foster kids in France know who he is and what he’s doing.
Tell me your story
I think I have. I live in SW France where I foster children. Really frustrated and angry. My own kids are still in UK so I like to come and visit and I just have to go to Westminster while I’m there. Also been on most of the big demos. They’re uplifting. Early this year I got my dual French citizenship and French passport. So I’m alright Jack but I feel awful for what they’ve done to my home country and I know a lot of worried, upset Brits here in France.
