BBC Clip - Anti Brexit March In Central London
An estimated two million people marched through London today, from Park Lane and Hyde Park to Westminster, demanding a second referendum on Brexit or for Article 50 to be revoked.
Add to this an online petition on the government website that has accumulated nearly 4 million signatures in around a day and a half.
News is breaking tonight that a Conservative Party coup is about to remove Theresa May and there are even indications that a little known MP by the name of David Lidlington, who has never held an office of State or even a Cabinet position is being lined up to replace her. The only thing we know about him at this time is that he is an ardent remainer. These reports are unconfirmed at this time.
We would have been in London today, but it's my father in law's birthday and we've been in St Austell all evening at his bash. I think the march hasn't missed our participation too much
Support for Brexit hasn't completely collapsed in the country because there is still a hard core of support, but with the political situation being what it is and the consequences of going ahead with it becoming more apparent by the day, large swathes of people are finally waking up to what the effect of this national disaster will mean to them personally.
The only thing preventing a second referendum now is Theresa May herself, and the hard-line European Research Group within the Conservative Party who have tremendous influence.
But what government could ignore the events of today....?? Anybody claiming that "We had a vote in 2016" is simply blind to the fact that that vote is no longer the will of the people.
