On Saturday Mayor of London Sadiq Khan called for a Peoples’ Vote on Brexit – the right for UK citizens to have a final vote on any Brexit deal obtained by the Government.

Kasia Greenwood, who has worked in London for the last eight years, supported Mr Khan’s calls.

She said: “If people are calling for a People’s Vote how can we deny democracy, it is actually calling for more democracy.

“The Brexit that is being offered if not what anyone voted for.

“How can the Government claim they are following the will of people if they don’t know what that is?”

Ms Greenwood says a lot of Europeans who she used to work with have now returned to mainland Europe since the vote to leave – causing a loss “diversity” in her workplace.

She said it was “encouraging” that prominent people like Sadiq Khan are calling for a People’s Vote.

Ms Greenwood, a mother of two young children, said being part of the EU allowed her to travel freely and study in Europe but is worried the impact leaving it could have on her children.

She added: “I am so frustrated and angry, I feel devastated for my children.

“How can we be doing this to future generations?”

Research commissioned by Mr Khan earlier this year suggests that leaving the EU with no-deal could result in 87,000 fewer jobs in London by 2030 and a loss of £50 billion of investment across the whole of the UK.

This is something Paolo Montemurro, who lives in Italy but travels frequently to the UK and London for work, is particularly concerned about.

Mr Montemurro works for Mantera Hub, a company funded by the EU that helps start-up businesses and young entrepreneurs getting into business.

He said that his company has developed a lot of important partnerships with the UK and being part of the EU allows for free movement of people, jobs and trade.
