I’m marching because I am a passionate remainer and I will feel physically hurt if we leave the EU. I was at the last march and I hope this will be even bigger.
I’m not sure if we have a realistic chance of a people’s vote – no one knows what will happen – but my hope is that we won’t leave.
During the referendum, people were just given two options on a ballot paper and I think they were stuck. There were promises over the NHS. Now we have had time to think it through and it’s so clear that leaving will be awful.
The leadership on this has been a total disaster on both sides. We wanted clarity and instead we have the two main parties squabbling while the people are left behind.

......or is it last throw of dice to convince Mps to vote for deal (all of them that is as I am sure they all feel a little insecure about the prospect of redundancy)? Deputy chair of committee sounded pretty convincing that this would be the next step (vote in 6 to 7 weeks with May as leader)if the deal is voted down. Oh what deep joy!!
......like a very big crying baby! Just referred to a poll amongst the young people that couldn't vote last time, conveniently forgetting the 44% of the voting population that would now go with no deal.
"Bradley was forced into a humiliating apology on Thursday for saying that deaths caused by police and soldiers during the Troubles were not crimes.
Relatives of civilians killed said the apology was “too little too late”.
They also accused her of trying to interfere with a decision, expected next week, on whether to prosecute soldiers involved in the killing of 14 civilians on Bloody Sunday in 1972."
"The controversy erupted after Bradley told the House of Commons on Wednesday that soldiers and police involved in killings were “people acting under orders and instructions, fulfilling their duties in a dignified and appropriate way”.
....no identity outrage, virtue signalling to be had I suppose, shallow days indeed!
