Recently dispatched to Canvey Island and Peterborough to photograph the faces of the electorate voting in the European elections and the Peterborough by-elections, here are some of the fine people I got to meet and some of their thoughts…

Canvey

“I voted for Brexit in the referendum but now I think I made a mistake.”

“Why do we need to ask Brussels how to spend our money?”

“I would like us to get out of the EU. I will not be voting Conservative, Labour or Lib Dem in the Euro elections. I will be voting for Brexit.”

“I think we should be out. We voted to go out, so we should be out.”


Peterborough

“There are too many elections, and Brexit is all we hear about.”

Shazad Mahmood

“The hardest part is seeing the election leaflets coming through, promising jobs for English people – it’s discrimination and that’s wrong.”

“I want our MP to live up their policies – to mean what they say they’re going to do locally.”

Angelique Williams

“I want our new MP to be compassionate: a doer – not a taker – someone who will stand up and defend Peterborough.”
