GB News host Dan Wootton was joined by Jay Aston on his Wednesday evening show to talk about her career and decision to step into the world of politics. Wootton was not surprised when Aston admitted she’d lost friends for joining the Brexit party after feeling the public was being “brainwashed” into believing Vote Leave was a “mistake”.
“I’ve obviously got to get your political view on where things are at,” Wootton began.
“You’ve had a fascinating political development given you stood for the Brexit party and I think you were a bit like me.
“You were supportive of Brexit but it was actually the attempts by the establishment to overturn the vote that really energised you and made you decide to stand as a candidate.”
Aston replied: “Yeah absolutely. I can’t believe I actually to be honest because it was so out of character.
“It just seemed like we were being brainwashed, ‘Oh we’ve made a mistake, we didn’t know what we were voting for.’”
“Even thought it was the biggest democratic vote of all time,” Wootton added.
Aston continued: “Exactly! You can’t lose democracy otherwise you go down a slippery slope.
“In my small way I just wanted to help and I got a lot of hate for it but I think we’re on the right path.”
“That’s what I was going to ask though because the entertainment industry is not forgiving of folk who go against the woke narrative,” Wootton continued.
“Of course it’s an industry where if you’re a Brexiteer, it’s very risky to speak up publicly.
“I mean, I know there’s a lot of Brexiteers within the entertainment industry who just don’t talk about it but you made that bold decision to come out if you like.
“Did you lose friends, did you lose friends as a result of that?”
Aston answered: “I don’t think I lost jobs but I did lose friends and I think some people will never forgive me for it.
“But I just felt compelled, I couldn’t not stand up and say I just think this is wrong and if, in my small way, I helped then great.”
