People's Vote march in London

A no-deal Brexit could result in food and medicine shortages in the United Kingdom, warned the National Farmers' Union and the National Health Service trust.

Organisers of the rally, People's Vote UK, posted to Twitter: "Well over HALF A MILLION are marching on Parliament today, demanding a #PeoplesVote on the Brexit deal. We will not walk away and we will take responsibility for this mess with a People's Vote". She said recently SNP MPs would back a new Brexit referendum.

In June 2016 the public voted to leave the European Union (EU) by 51.89% to 48.11%.

Vince Cable, the leader of the Liberal Democrats, was the most senior political figure present who was joined by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, former Green Party leader Caroline Lucas, former Conservative government minister Anna Soubry and former shadow front bench Labour Party minister Chuka Umunna.

Theresa May visited an arts exhibition in her constituency of Maidenhead today while anti-Brexit protesters gathered for the People's Vote march.

The march in London on Saturday begins at midday in Park Lane, finishing in Parliament Square.

The EU said Thursday that it was ready to extend the length of the transition period that is created to smooth the UK's exit from the 28-nation bloc next year.

"The idea that you should have a second referendum would be incredibly damaging most of all to the trust in democracy from people up and down this country", Richard Tice, founder of the opposing Leave Means Leave campaign, said.

Thousands of people filled the streets, some were singing, others were playing instruments, while many plastic whistles blared out.

Local Conservative MP Mims Davies said: "I regularly hear from constituents and engage with them on their varied and strong views around Brexit, and appreciate why they may be choosing to march or are keen to leave, but ultimately we are leaving in March 2019 and delivering on the Referendum result".

Britain is scheduled to leave the European Union on March 29, but negotiations over the divorce have been plagued by disagreements, particularly over the future border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

A number of British Members of Parliament calling for a fresh vote on Brexit came out in support of the march, the BBC reported. "To demonstrate against this threatens our democratic process, and while I am glad the march went off peacefully, we should be very wary of where the anti-Brexit lobby are taking us".

Whether you voted Leave or Remain, no-one voted for this omnishambolic clown-car catastrofuck Brexit.

Indeed the prospect of complete gridlock in parliament is very real - with no majority for a no-deal exit from the European Union, and major question marks over whether there is a majority for the kind of deal Mrs May is hoping for.

"I'm sorry that people fell for the lies but we speak to leavers as much as we talk to remainers and they're just as fed up with it as well". "We need your help so that the people can take back control of the future of this country".
