Hundreds of thousands demand new Brexit vote in mass march - USA

Hundreds of thousands demand new Brexit vote in mass march - USA

Grassroots campaign group People's Vote UK, said: "This Government has failed on Brexit: there is no mandate for its auto crash proposal or for a disastrous no-deal Brexit".

About 700,000 protesters seeking a referendum on the final Brexit deal rallied in London on Saturday in the biggest march in the capital city since a 2003 protest against the war in Iraq.

Receiving cheers from the crowds, he said: "There is no deal better than the one we have now: it is better for Britain and better for Europe".

The anti-Brexit campaigner said: "I think Theresa May is under a huge amount of pressure, if you can not pay attention to the 700,000 people that have come out to demand this vote then you will, definitely".

With the clock ticking on Britain's withdrawal from the European Union, Germany and France are already stepping up their preparations for a no-deal Brexit, even though both publicly insist an agreement with the United Kingdom over the terms of its departure from the EU can still be achieved. An estimated 700,000 of them took to the streets of London, demanding a second vote before Brexit is finalized.

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 promises to be kaleidoscope of colour and sound - home-made placards vying for space with banners, people with loudspeakers leading chants against Brexit and good-natured singing.

"What could be more democratic, what could be more British than trusting the judgement of the British people?" asked London Mayor Sadiq Khan asked by the BBC what his message for Theresa May was as he joined the #PeoplesVote march.

Overall, the night belonged to another young Suns star, Devin Booker , who scored 35 while hitting six-of-10 3-pointers. Warren 17 for the Suns, who gave Kokoskov a victory in his National Basketball Association head coaching debut.

However, there is evidence that some of the groups promoting the campaign's march through metropolitan London on October 20th were directly funded by the European Union itself - to the tune of hundreds of thousands of euros, according to Guido Fawkes. "Let the people you serve have their say".

Organisers of the so-called People's Vote March had asked people to dress up their favourite pets in costumes for the march along the scenic route from Hyde Park to Westminster Palace under clear blue skies.

Aleta Doyle, 46, from Peterborough, who attended with her 12-year-old son Leo, said she was marching "for my children's future and European unity".

The Metropolitan Police said that there had been no trouble on the march and that no arrests had been made. He said: "I believe very strongly in the European Union as a place of peace and strength".

"Brexit's becoming a dog's dinner".

"So I am instinctively always against referendums but I don't think you can do this without having another one".

"I think people were misled in various ways", small business owner Peter Hancock told AFP while tightening an European Union flag around the neck of his huge bearded collie.
