RESIDENTS and visitors to Lyme Regis were intrigued by the ‘Brexitometer’ in Broad Street last Saturday.

Volunteers campaigning for a people’s vote invited passers-by to express their views on the Brexit process, with more than 120 people answering questions with coloured dots.

A majority felt Brexit would be bad for the UK’s jobs, economy, NHS and opportunities for young people.

Opinion was more divided about whether MPs should support calls for a people’s vote, although a majority felt they should.

It became apparent that there is still confusion about what a ‘no deal Brexit’ means, as a number of people thought that the UK stayed in the EU and a further group indicated that they did not know what it would actually mean.

Devon for Europe, West Dorset for Europe, Dorset for Europe and Somerset Loves Europe are some of the local groups campaigning for a people’s vote on Theresa May’s Brexit deal.

Campaigners will be bringing their ‘Brexitometer’ to Bridport on Saturday (12/1), which will be set up in Bucky Doo Square from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
