ANTI-Brexit campaigners were out in Bishop’s Waltham on Saturday testing opinion with a ‘Brexitometer’.

They called on Meon Valley MP George Hollingbery, who voted remain in the 2016 referendum, to oppose any prospect of a ‘no-deal’ Brexit as well as supporting a People’s Vote to break the present political log-jam.

The event, organised by Hampshire European Movement, came just three days ahead of the next round of key votes in the House of Commons, with over 20 volunteers out in the High Street speaking to local residents and inviting them to record their opinions on Brexit and what should happen next on the Brexitometer chart.

Andrew Adams, of the Hampshire European Movement, said : “We have had a great response from local people, with a wide range of views but an over-riding fear of the consequences for the local area if we face a no-deal.

“It is obvious that Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal has failed - our local MPs need to listen to the views of their constituents, oppose a damaging no-deal Brexit and support a People’s Vote to allow the people to have a properly informed choice on our future direction.”

Anti-Brexit campaigners have regularly held similar events on the High Street in Winchester.
