Anti-Brexit protest draws tens of thousands

  • Anti-Brexit demonstrators fill Parliament Square in central London during the People's Vote march which called for a vote on the final Brexit deal

'Nobody was talking about a bad Brexit deal, nobody was talking about no deal whatsoever. And, they have not minced their words.

"No country in the world has cultivated arrogance the way Britain has", the headline reads on a brutal op-ed published in the country's most widely read news site, Der Spiegel, overnight.

"There's a lot more advertising coming from the Remain side", said Sam Jeffers, one of the project's founders.

The statement came after a weekend of intensifying plotting in Westminster - both by the Prime Minister's pro-Brexit Tory colleagues against her, and by pro-remain campaigners who, emboldened by a protest march on Saturday, have vowed "the most co-ordinated lobbying effort ever conducted on a piece of legislation".

Dugdale said people "from all across Scotland" marched in London to show their support for a People's Vote.

"All I ask is that your people in your march are positive about this future, you can disagree and call on another vote - which will never happen - but I feel like you should get behind this country, back this country, and think it could do great things, because what's the point of being so negative about democracy?"

TV chef Delia Smith told the crowds that Brexit was "the most important issue in our lifetime", adding: "My message to MPs is please sort this out".

"That's a million miles away from what was promised two-and-a-half years ago". It will be the U.K.'s only land border with the European Union after Brexit, for Ireland is part of the European Union and Northern Ireland is part of the U.K. One of the great accomplishments of the 1998 peace deal that ended decades of violence in Northern Ireland was to dismantle the police and military presence at the border with Ireland.

With the DUP and the ERG wing of hard Brexiteers in her own party seemingly dead set against what the government is trying to negotiate, it would require a significant number of Labour MPs to defy their own party and support Mrs May. "As a result, Britain is in danger of wasting the opportunities of Brexit".


"Rather than pursue diversionary tactics, Nicola Sturgeon should get on with working with the United Kingdom government to get the best deal possible".

With just over five months until Britain is due to leave there is no clarity about what a future trade deal with the European Union will look like and some rebels in May's Conservative Party have threatened to vote down a deal if she clinches one.

David Mitchell, chairman of the Enfield Liberal Democrat group, said the group of protesters at Saturday's march is twice as many than at the march in June.

Some social media called out several over-the-top signs, including one that said "Hitler would be proud of this Brexit".

"We would have to meet minimum income rules and I am self-employed", said Godfrey.

The PM will tell the House of Commons that "taking all of this together, 95 per cent of the withdrawal agreement and its protocols are now settled". Would the European Union allow Britain to change its mind?

The entourage, which included the Leave Means Leave campaign's white battle bus parked on West Park, then moved slowly down Parliament Street pausing to chat to passers-by and shake the hand of the occasional supporter as the equally occasional anti-Brexit person looked on in a very civilised fashion.
