Nearly 70,000 people marched on the streets of London to demand the second Brexit referendum. The Tens of thousands of people opposed to Britain´s looming breakup with the EU rallied in the heart of London on Saturday, in the latest bid to try and stop Brexit.
The protestors chanted slogans against Brexit and in the favour of remaining part of the EU. The noisy and colourful crowd marched towards parliament to show their anger to the British government. The majority of Conservative and labour MPs are opposing the second vote on Brexit.
The march started from Hyde Park and culminated in Westminster Palace on a sunny and bright day. This protest is the reflection of growing anger about the possible break up of Britain from EU.
The people are complaining that the Leave campaign lied to them about the possible fall out of this break up. The sentiments in some sections of the society have changed since the details of possible fall out published in the media.
The protestors are angry, because the type of Brexit its supporters promised ahead of the June 2016 referendum, which set the divorce in motion, looks nothing like the one being negotiated today. Protesters say they would have voted differently had they known the true costs involved.
But prime Minister May has made it abundantly clear that she has no intention of allowing a Brexit do-over.
“They now want a second referendum to go back to the British people and say ´Oh, we´re terribly sorry — we think you´ve got it wrong,´” she told parliament. “There´ll be no second referendum. The people voted and this government will deliver on it.”
But with negotiations between London and Brussels deadlocked, it remains unclear what deal, if any, her government can deliver. Neither choice is appealing. Recriminations over how Britain got here are leaving May looking increasingly isolated and weak.
PM May has put her political position at stake to went ahead with Brexit deal with EU.
As Britain´s planned departure in March next year draws closer it faces the prospect of leaving without any agreement, or remaining in a transition phase for several years with few changes but notably losing its decision-making seat at the EU.
Dark clouds are hovering over the Brexit deal and so the future of PM May. The latest Polls show support for a second referendum evenly split — the same as with Brexit itself.
The 2016 Brexit poll was backed by 52 percent of voters on turnout of 72 percent. Nothing can be safely said about the possible outcome of second referendum if agreed. The 2016 Brexit poll was backed by 52 percent of voters on turnout of 72 percent.
The last big march on parliament demanding a second vote in June saw an estimated 100,000 gather on and around the picturesque Parliament Square facing Westminster Palace. Organisers expect this one will be bigger and involve supporters of all major parties from every corner of Britain — and beyond.
In a case of no deal, the British ex-pats will lose voting and other rights in EU member states. They are worried that they might force to come back to Britain if deal was not reached.
There might more such protests across Britain as the date of departure is coming close.
