DURING a conversation with Sue Wilson the chair of pressure group Bremain in Spain, she told Euro Weekly News that she had been very pleased with the fact that more than 100,000 people had taken the trouble to attend the Unite for Europe march.
According to Sue, she felt part of a large up swell of people who are opposed to the decision for Britain to leave the European Union and although she is not a public speaker she was delighted to address those attending alongside MPs Tim Farron and David Lammy as well as former deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.
Sue told EWN that “this was just one demonstration of the depth of feeling which is growing and will without doubt be repeated.”
As far as the actual triggering of Article 50 is concerned, she refuses to be downbeat as her group knew that it was coming but in her words it is “certainly not the end of the argument.”
Indeed she is excited that members of the coalition opposed to Brexit managed to meet with the leader of the EU negotiating team Michel Barnier, even before the British government had done so.
She believes that the meeting was the reason for a sudden decision by the Ministry for Exiting the European Union to agree to have face to face discussions with three representatives from the coalition and they currently await confirmation of date and who they will meet as it appears that Secretary of State David Davis will not be available.
One of the opinions that Sue has was quite interesting as she feels that it would appear that European Union representatives have a greater interest in the protection of the rights of British citizens within the EU than the British government does.
“As I said in my speech at Parliament Square, I am a proud European and I would like to be proud to be British again” said Sue who is a long-term resident of Alcossebre in the province of Castellon.
