Open Britain campaigners in Nailsea.


Most people living in North Somerset want the final say on the Brexit 
deal, according to campaigners.

The district’s branch of Open Britain were out on the streets of Nailsea at the weekend to gauge public opinion on the UK’s split from the European Union.

The group wants the country to stay in the single market and customs union after Brexit.

But it was asking passers-by to use coloured balls and a mood box to show how they felt about the process.

Campaigner Andrew Wright said: “We injected some fun into our event with a mood box asking the question: who should make the decision on the final Brexit deal? Politicians or the people?

“Passers-by really engaged with it and lots of discussions were generated.

“In the end, on balance, most thought that the people should have the 
final say on whatever Brexit deal the Government comes back with from the EU.”
