In the interview with Vice Magazine she also spoke up in defence of the elderly, who have faced a lot of Remainer vitriol in the last three years: "It breaks my heart when everyone thinks people past 60 are all some sort of white supremacist". Not everyone Maxine, but certainly a great number of people who work in your industry.
Peake was a member of the Communist Party in her youth, but is now a Labour activist and a supporter of Jeremy Corbyn's leadership (naturally). She rails against the Tories in the same interview, while simultaneously taking payment to voice the government's smart meter adverts.
