A woman broke down on live television yesterday after describing the emotional impact that Brexit has had on her life.
Appearing on the Jeremy Vine show the caller said her family is going to suffer because of Britain’s exit from the European Union, which she says has “ruined the country”.
“We’re going to struggle to put food on our table because a few of you don’t like foreigners”, she added, saying her husband’s construction business was now in trouble because of a lack of labour.
Her own job is also in jeopardy because the bank she works for is transferring jobs to Dublin.
Talking live on the show she said:
“We’re losing our jobs – thousands of jobs have gone overseas to Frankfurt or Dublin. The banks are moving abroad to protect themselves, because of Brexit. That is a fact.
“My husband’s building company is going to be in trouble, as are many others, because there is a severe lack of labour here. I’m sorry, this really upsets me.”
“We’re going to struggle to put food on our table because a few of you don’t like foreigners. I am patriotic, I love my country and I don’t know why we’re ruining it.
“I don’t know why we want economic hardship. I don’t know why I can’t give the best to my children – the life I want them to have.”
