Broxtowe’s oldest Labour member has called for Corbyn to honour the referendum and leave the EU despite being a pro-remainer.

David Price, 87 from Beeston, started supporting Labour in the 1940s during his time working as an engineer.

He described the current Brexit situation in parliament as ‘an absolute mess’.

Despite David’s political history, he did not vote in the 2016 referendum.

He said: “I didn’t vote because I don’t know. There might be 100 reasons why we should stay and 100 reasons why we should leave.

 

“I would say that we would be better off staying in the European Union.”

David’s socialist beliefs are what maintained his commitment to the Labour party for the past 70 years. However, Brexit has caused confusion despite his knowledge in politics.

He said: “There is confusion in our own party, so what am I to know, what am I to think?

“I am 87 years old. I just want to see the rest of my life out with least hassle as possible.”

David’s does not back a second referendum or a people’s vote, which Corbyn has suggested in the recent Brexit talks.

He said: “We’ve had a referendum, people have voted to leave by a minority margin and if we have another referendum what is there to say that more people might say ‘out’ we don’t know.

“It will probably be just the same so what are we going to have? A third referendum?

We’ve had a referendum, full stop. Get a good deal”.

David is standing for Labour councillor and is campaigning with Greg Marshall running for Labour council in the run up to local elections on the 2 May 2019.

Brexit results remain unclear.
