i news - ‘Someone lied to me’: Question Time audience member who voted leave says she has changed her mind and wants second referendum

"They keep calling it the will of the people, we voted that's it - like there's your cake, you've got to eat it."

An audience member at BBC’s Question Time says she regrets voting leave and calls for second referendum over “misleading” Brexit stories.

Speaking passionately, she argued that there were promises made by the government that they just can’t keep – noting it was lies that won its campaign.

‘I voted leave but I changed my mind’

Explaining her view point she said: “They keep calling it the will of the people, we voted that’s it – like there’s your cake, you’ve got to eat it.

“Well it’s not exactly is it? A lot of people have said I voted leave but I would change my mind, because people have been lied to they’ve been mislead.

“They’ve been told ‘oh we’re going to get millions for the NHS, we’re going to stop migrants. We’re going to do this, we’re going to do that’.

“None of that is going to happen.

None of the promises that were made are going to actually happen. “I voted leave but I changed my mind.”

Changed mind

When confronted by a panellist who asked why she voted leave she went on to blame the media putting out “sob stories”.

“I was back and forth. The only thing that led me to vote leave that day was because of some sob story I read about a man with a boat, who can’t fish because the EU ruins his fishing rights,” she said.

“I want a second referendum because I voted leave and it’s not a, oops, look what I done, – it’s a ‘oops, someone lied to me.'

” She continued: “And I think if you get your second referendum there’s a huge possibility they’ll be staying.”

Sparking debate

Since being posted online by the BBC it has sparked a debate on Twitter about her points.

One annoyed viewer wrote: “If it really got to that point where you literally had no idea what you were voting for then you shouldn’t vote at all, good grief some really thick people out there.”

A second tweeted: “My friend actually would go the other way. She voted remain but given how the EU are conducting themselves she would now vote leave.”

Another joined in and wrote: “She doesn’t have to prove the lies. They are well documented. Have you heard about the illegal actions of the leave campaign?”
