Brexit deal sub­ject of vote at care home

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

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.

Res­i­dents at Moat House Care Home in Burbage gave their views on the Brexit deal. Alan Kennedy wanted his MP to vote in favour of the deal.
