The upcoming snap election in Britain will test traditional party loyalties like never before, with many voters identifying as ‘leave’ or ‘remain’, rather than by traditional labels. SBS News travelled to the town of Stratford-Upon-Avon, the home of William Shakespeare, which narrowly voted to leave in the 2016 referendum, to find out who residents will be supporting in December.
To Brexit… or not to Brexit… That is the question that still divides this nation… and the parliament that rules over it.
Stratford-Upon-Avon is the birthplace of the bard, and during the Referendum campaign, both sides claimed William Shakespeare would have backed their cause.
But the result here mirrored the nationwide outcome: 52 percent leave… 48 per cent remain - despite the fact this is a town that’s very much reliant on overseas visitors.
In one of the many tourist shops, we met Carol Wheeler, who’s fed up with politics as usual.
This election, she’s backing The Brexit Party.
