Georgia you think Steele: about ‘What Brexit?’ do Hayley Hughes: ‘What’s that?’ GS: ‘Where we’re leaving the European Union.’ HH: ‘I seriously don’t have a clue what…’ Samira Mighty: ‘So it was to leave the EU, so we wouldn’t be part of Europe.’ HH: ‘Oh the EU, yeah, yeah.’ GS: ‘It would mean, like, welfare and things we trade with would be cut down.’ HH: ‘So does that mean we won’t have any trees?’ SM: ‘Cheese?’ HH: ‘Trees.’ GS: ‘No, that’s got nothing to do with it, babe. That’s weather.’ Woman out of shot: ‘Why wouldn’t we have trees?’ HH: ‘Well, you were talking about…’ Woman out of shot: ‘No, we’re just not in the European Union. We’re still classed as being in Europe.’ GS: ‘Doesn’t it mean it’d be harder like to go to like Spain and stuff?’ HH: ‘So it’d be harder to go on holidays?’ Woman out of shot: ‘Yeah, I think so.’ HH: ‘Oh, I love my holidays.’
