Kate Belgrave gets a strange kind of welcome in Leeds

During Kate Belgrave recently visited what turned out to be a 'Brexit' hot spot within a city that voted narrowly for Britain to Remain in the EU.(1) (Leeds voted 50.3% for Remain, 49.7% to Leave the EU, on a 71.3% turnout.(2))

Leeds voted narrowly for the UK to remain within the EU

And as a New Zealander with Irish passport she was welcomed there for her ancestry rather than her viewpoint on the UK's EU referendum. Welcome back to the land of blogging, Kate!
