First topic message reminder :

Anti-Brexit protesters have travelled from all over the country to London for the 'Put it to the People March' as the online petition urging the government to cancel Brexit passed four and a half million signatures.

Opponents of Britain's departure from the European Union began gathering in Hyde Park from 12pm before converging on Westminster and organisers claim a million people turned up to voice their concerns over the decision to leave the EU.

If true, today's demonstration would be the biggest since 2003 when an estimated one million people protested against the Iraq War in the streets of London.

Speakers set to address a rally outside Parliament include Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, London Mayor Sadiq Khan and opposition Labour deputy leader Tom Watson.

Other speakers will include former Conservative cabinet minister Justine Greening and ex-attorney general Dominic Grieve, former Tory turned independent MP Anna Soubry, Lib Dem deputy leader Jo Swinson, Green Party MP Caroline Lucas and SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford.

Organisers claimed that one million protesters came to the protest, after previously saying they were confident that the size of the crowd would exceed a similar rally held in October, where 700,000 people turned up.

The Metropolitan Police refused to comment on the size of the march.

Addressing the crowd in Parliament Square, Labour's deputy leader Tom Watson said: 'We are one million strong.'

He said he was there on behalf of his 10-year-old daughter.

'She has told me to thank you for campaigning for her future,' he said.

Mr Watson said the Prime Minister's deal 'pleases no-one'.

'If you voted remain it's a rubbish deal, if you voted leave it's a lousy deal. There are no winners, only losers,' he said.

He added: 'Brexit is stuck in the parliamentary pipeworks and it's not going to find a way out.'

Addressing his comments to Theresa May, he said: 'I can only vote for a deal if you let the people vote on it too.

'Prime Minister, you've lost control of this process, you're plunging the country into chaos, let the people take control.'

The decision of 17.4 million people to vote to leave the EU, didn't centre around what was written across that bus!!!


And given the fact that we haven't even left the EU yet... NONE of the money mentioned on the bus can be given to the NHS!!!

Interesting how remainers would rather carry on giving such eye watering amounts of money to the EU every week, rather than take back control of it and use it to give extra funds to the NHS and other public services here in the UK...!?

Quite right!



"Vote Leave. Let's fund our NHS."

Can't be more clear-cut than that.

Forget the bus. I don't know anyone who voted to leave who's even mentioned the bus or the NHS.
