Ol­livier-Minns is in­censed that Bri­tish peo­ple are not stand­ing up for her.

“I have a Bri­tish hus­band and Bri­tish chil­dren, I have been here for 31 years.

“Ev­ery­body shrugs their shoul­ders and says ‘you’ll be all right, your hus­band’s Bri­tish’. We’re fed up of hear­ing this. To tell us we have to be treated like crim­i­nals, have fin­ger­prints, pass an English test, it’s in­sult­ing.

“The gen­eral ap­a­thy of this coun­try [about this is­sue] is the main rea­son cit­i­zens want to leave, more than Brexit. I am jus­ti­fy­ing my rea­sons to re­main and I don’t want to have to do that.”
