Brexit deal subject of vote at care home
A CARE home polled its residents for their views on the Brexit deal.
Moat House Care Home in Burbage asked residents how they would like their local MP to vote on Theresa May’s agreement with Brussels.
Residents voted in favour of supporting the deal with 34 per cent voting yes and 4 per cent voting no, while 63 per cent said that the issue is too complex for them to form a definite opinion.
Alan Kennedy, 88, said: “I think it’s important residents are given the opportunity to give their opinion.
“I voted to leave because of the increasing number of restrictions that we have to follow and didn’t vote for.”
Nicky French, Moat House Care Home manager, said: “I’m always keen to listen to our residents and their views are as valid as everyone else’s.
“This is an interesting, if not wholly surprising, outcome and we will be speaking with residents again about Brexit once the future on it is clearer.”
The care home carried out the survey as part of its commitment to listening to and giving residents a voice on topical issues and current affairs.
