Regrexit

July 15, 2016

I was out door knocking this morning. I always enjoy it. It gives you a very good feel of what a whole mix of people are thinking. Today is wasn’t about any particular issue or any forthcoming election. It was about picking up ward issues or anything people wanted to mention as being good or bad in their community. But inevitably Brexit came up. In an area where part of the Labour party had been out in force to campaign for Leave it was refreshing to come across a clear majority of people who had voted to stay in the EU, a clear indication that the 70% of people in Bath who had voted to stay came from across the party political divide. I only came across one woman with a young child who said she had voted to leave. She also said she was regretting it now. She couldn’t tell me the exact reason but it was clear that the Tory Brexit we are getting now is not what many people had bargained for.
