Thousands of people have called for a second Brexit referendum as MPs vote on Boris Johnson’s withdrawal deal.

Effigies of the Prime Minister and his senior adviser Dominic Cummings were on show during the demonstration, attended by famous faces including Star Trek actor Sir Patrick Stewart.

Meanwhile, pro-Brexit supporters staged a counter-demonstration during a tense day in Parliament.

    1. Two things Remainers can never do again. They can never call themselves democrats, even if their efforts to thwart Brexit fail; and they can never complain if the next vote overthrown is their own.

      I think Jeremy has snatched defeat from the jaws of victory…too many will turn away over this…so now we’ll just have to wait for the riots to bring about change.
