A man with diabetes has said he wants the UK to leave the European Union, even at the potential cost of insulin not arriving in the UK.
Reporters from the BBC took to the streets of Birmingham to get the opinions of the public about Brexit as the 31 October deadline looms ever closer.
One man said revealed:
I'm a diabetic. I rely on insulin, but I still want to leave.
The reporter appeared shocked and responded:
If the insulin doesn't arrive, for you as a diabetic, you think that's a price worth paying?
The Brexiteer responded:
Yeah I do. Because we voted to leave.We didn't vote for a deal. We didn't vote for anything, we voted to leave Europe, right? And that's all we want, right? We're either a democracy, or we're not.
