Thousands Set To March In London To Urge Second EU Referendum

Advertisment

Thousands of people are antici[ated to participate in a march that is set to be held in central London today to urge for a final referendum on the Brexit deal, the so-called people’s vote.

The protesters were seeking a referendum on the final Brexit deal. They have attended a rally which the organisers say was considered the “biggest” demonstration of its kind.

The march began at midday in Park Lane and finishes in Parliament Square where the marchers will hear speakers, including Delia Smith, a TV chef, and Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, argue for a vote regarding the final Brexit deal.

However, a second Brexit referendum is something which has already been ruled out by Theresa May, the British Prime Minister.

Young voters led the People’s Vote march to the Parliament Square of London, which supporters say was able to attract more than 600,000 people.

Coachloads of supporters of the said march have been tweeting their journeys to London, which included a group that was travelling from Orkney in the far north of Scotland.

Various politicians from all the main parties have already expressed their support. The list of supporters included David Lammy, the Labour MP for Tottenham; Dominic Grieve and Justine Greening, the former Conservative cabinet ministers; and Sir Vince Cable, the Liberal Democrat leader.

Leave Means Leave, a Pro-Brexit organisation, is holding a rally of its own in Harrogate with attendees including Nigel Farage, the former UKIP leader; Kate Hoey, a Labour MP; and Owen Paterson, a former Conservative minister.

Farage stated: “The evidence suggests about a third of those that voted remain now say we’re democrats and think the government should simply get on with it.”

He added: “And that’s our message – get on with it, fulfil your promises to us, you said if we voted to leave it would happen, it needs to.”
