  4. Brexit one month on: Have your say

    BBC Midlands Today

    If you’re still feeling a little lost and confused about what Britain’s decision to Brexit means for you, you aren’t alone. 

    A month on from the EU Referendum we’re calling in an expert to sort the facts from fiction, looking at what people said would happen and what actually happened and then make a best guess at what is likely to happen as we prepare to leave. 

    We’ve also been interested in hearing from a range of voices from across the West Midlands to find out how Brexit has affected their daily lives – if at all. 

    Today on the programme we meet the Sorge family - a French mum and German dad who weren't allowed to vote but were shocked by Brexit - and Sutton Coldfield window cleaner Roger Needle who wants to leave the EU.

    We’d love to hear your thoughts too, so share them with us here on Facebook or Twitter and we’ll try to read as many as we can on the programme tonight.
