Best for Doncaster Chair Frederika Roberts featured on ‘Doncaster Voices’ in the Doncaster Free Press

The Doncaster Free Press asked for views on Brexit, specifically whether people would change their vote on leaving the EU.

Doncaster Free Press 2nd Aug 2018 | Would you change your mind on leaving the EU

With the Government discussing preparations you’d only expect in war time (stockpiling food, medicines and blood) in case of a no-deal Brexit, and their appalling track record in negotiating over the last two years, it is irresponsible and bordering on criminal for politicians to keep on pushing ahead with this wilful act of self-harm.  In a democracy, people are allowed to change their minds, especially when new information becomes available.

I’m a non-British EU citizen.  After building a life, family and business here for the last 28 years, I will be stripped of rights next March, yet didn’t get a vote in the referendum.  I love this country.  That’s why I support a People’s Vote on the final deal, including the option to remain (if I could vote, I’d vote remain).

The British public deserve better; they deserve a final say.

Doncaster Free Press online included more ‘voices’ on both sides of the argument.  You can read the full feature on their website.
