This series is being run by a young Brit who lived in Belgium for 19 years and now resides in Cardiff, known on theSprout as Ironfoot. The aim? To inform and involve other young people in this once in a generation debate from many important and interesting perspectives.
The EU referendum is just around the corner and will decide the future fate for Britain on its European Union Membership, with team Brexit (British Exit) wanting to leave the EU and team Bremain (Pro – EU) wishing to stay. With less than a week to go, there are still a lot of questions to be answered, especially around British Expats.
This article is the final interview of the series before the referendum and is with Welsh Labour MEP, Derek Vaughan. The interview took place on 10th June 2016 in the Penylan Library and Community Centre.
It started off as an information session with members of the public asking questions to Derek Vaughan, the MEP for Wales, as well as many other political figures from the Labour Party, such as Jo Sevens, the MP for Cardiff Central, who organised the event. The session explored all sorts of questions on immigration, how the EU works, farming, the economy, and many others.
After the session, I was able to have a one-to-one interview with Mr Vaughan and discussed his role as an MEP, how projects like Job Growth Wales and Erasmus+ would be affected, and much more.
