People's Vote March: Kent protestors to join thousands in London

People's Vote March: Kent protestors to join thousands in London

According to The Mirror, the People's Vote March set off from Park Lane at midday and will end in a rally in Parliament Square.

Patrick Harvie and Maggie Chapman, co-conveners of the Scottish Greens backed a People's Vote on a final Brexit deal at their party's conference in Glasgow yesterday.

Organisers want the public to have a final say on the government's Brexit deal with the European Union, arguing that new facts have come to light about the costs and complexity of Britain's exit from the bloc since Britons voted to leave in 2016.

He said: "All I would say is the basic democratic arithmetic suggests that several hundred thousand protesting in what was an impressive protest can not trump the will of 17 million people who voted in the national referendum to leave the EU". The surprise victory for Brexit had several immediate consequences, including the resignation of anti-Brexit prime minister David Cameron, and the appointment of Theresa May to replace him.

During the march, Muriel joined in with chanting shouting "Hey hey Teresa May, give the people a final say".

"And that's our message - get on with it, fulfill your promises to us, you said if we voted to leave it would happen, it needs to", Farage said.

A no deal Brexit is trading at evens on Betfair Sportsbook after Theresa May struggled to make progress in her negotiations with European Union leaders at a summit in Brussels.

The UK is scheduled to formally leave the European Union on March 29, 2019, under the terms of the two-year Article 50 process.

Mega Millions jackpot now $868M, 2nd largest in U.S. history
The Associated Press is reporting that no winning lottery ticket was sold in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing. The chance of matching all six numbers and taking home the grand prize is one in 302.5 million.


The protest also attracted a number of high-profile figures, including London Mayor Sadiq Khan who will speak at the event.

Civil servants have reportedly begun contingency planning for a second Brexit referendum amid fears Theresa May is unable to get parliament to back a deal. The opposition Labour party said last month they open to a second referendum with the option of staying in the bloc in certain circumstances. This contrasted with the nation as a whole, as 52 percent voted to leave.

The march, dubbed the People's Vote March, attracted TV chef Delia Smith, presenter Richard Bacon and former Dragon's Den star Deborah Meaden. It's time it was returned to the British people.

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, told Sky News: "I can't think of anything more democratic or British than trusting the British people".

Marchers weaved through London towards Westminster, with many young men and women who arrived from all over the country who had been too young to vote in the original EU Referendum but would like a say on how and whether the United Kingdom leaves the EU when the consequences become apparent to their generation and future ones.

Ms Soubry said: "It is clear we are the many". May has repeatedly said that there will be no second general referendum on Brexit.

"It's time the great silent and not-so-silent majority made their feelings known about Brexit", anti-Brexit activist Gina Miller wrote in The Independent newspaper.
