Happy Brexmas John Redwood

How will you be spending Christmas and New Year this year?

I will be spending Christmas at home with family and friends. I love decorating the home, baking the cake and mixing the pudding.

Is Brexit likely to be a topic of conversation over Christmas dinner?

I will not be talking Brexit on Christmas Day – I want the day off to relax.

What is your favourite memory of the referendum campaign?

My favourite memory of the referendum was the announcement of the Punishment Budget, which proved to be a caricature of the whole Project Fear campaign, which made it incredible to many voters.

What do you think was the most significant moment of 2017?

The most significant moment of 2017 was sending the Article 50 letter to leave the EU.

Whether it be a traditional carol or a festive chart hit, what is your favourite piece of Christmas music (and why, if there’s a story or memory linked to it)?

My favourite Christmas music is Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride. I love the spirited version usually played by a local Youth Orchestra before Christmas.

Complete the phrase: “Brexit means…

Freedom. It means we take back control of our laws, our borders and our money. It means the restoration of the sovereignty of UK voters and their Parliament.

Have you any (political or personal) New Year’s resolutions?

To strive to serve my constituents well.
