"Don't Let Brexit Ruin Our Future" Young Welwyn Campaigner Tells MEP

BYeldon.jpegA young campaigner from Welwyn Garden City has travelled to Brussels to tell her MEP the worries and concerns of young people following decision to leave the European Union.
 
Belinda Yeldon, 24, met Alex Mayer MEP in the European Parliament to discuss a variety of Brexit issues following analysis by the London School of Economics which said young people had "deep concerns" about the "negative impact" of the 2016 referendum vote.

The report also said more than two-thirds of young people in the UK have an "international outlook" and many fear for their prospects once the UK leaves the EU.
 
Belinda Yeldon, an NHS business manager from Welwyn Garden City said: “With the current uncertainties surrounding Brexit young people’s voices need to be heard. We need a Brexit that opens up opportunities for young people, not one that takes them away.”

Alex Mayer MEP said: "It’s really distressing to hear the views of young people in my constituency who fear that Brexit will leave them poorer and more isolated. It is vital that the Government negotiates the best deal for young people, who are our country’s future.”
