Jude and Paul on one year to go until Brexit

09 April 2018

With less than one year left until Brexit day on 29 March 2019, Jude and Paul were interviewed by regional newspaper The Chronicle about the impact Brexit has had on their lives and their plans for after we leave the EU.

Paul said: “For those of us in our first terms, we’ve been through a steep learning curve but now I feel like I’ve got to grips with how it all works and how to get things done for the North East.

“You spend all this time building up contacts and identifying who the best people to talk to make things happen are and then it all comes crashing to an end.”

Jude revealed: “Apparently my status is British by descent and because my son was born in Belgium that means he isn’t automatically entitled to British citizenship,”

“I’m not exaggerating when I say people like me who are caught up in this wake up at four o’clock in the morning thinking about it.”

Do you think the North East needs its own voice in the EU exit negotiations?
