Answers:
1. According to the first protester to be interviewed, why is a new vote necessary?
He said, “As people find out what this means, what this means for their job, what this means for their families, people’s opinion is changing.
2. What was the the second person asked, that she said “No” to?
The question was “Are you a ‘remoaner'”? That word is made from “remain” and “moan” (complain), and means someone who cannot accept the “leave” decision from the referendum, and continues to moan about it.
3. According to the reporter, what is the message outside Downing Street (the government’s base)?
The message is that they (the government) are making a mess of Brexit, and that they won’t stay silent on it.
4. It has been two years since the referendum, and so far what has the government failed to do?
It has certainly failed to unite the country behind a single Brexit vision.
