As the anti-Brexit march approaches, politicians from all parties are calling for a People’s Vote

People's Vote March June 2018

On 20 October, those campaigning for a People’s Vote on Brexit will take to the streets of London. The march will set off from Park Lane at 12pm. As reported by the Evening Standard, over 100,000 people are expected to take part. Some say it could be the biggest anti-Brexit protest to date.

Support for a People’s Vote

Green Party MP for Brighton Pavilion Caroline Lucas showed her continued support:

Several Labour MPs have also expressed support. These include MP for Tottenham David Lammy:

And Janet Daby, MP for Lewisham East, is also calling for people to join her at the march:

SNP MP for Edinburgh South West Joanna Cherry will be speaking at the march. She also used Twitter to take a swipe at the Scottish Conservatives:

Plaid Cymru activist Carmen Ria Smith explained why she’s attending the march:

And even Conservative MP Anna Soubry has tweeted in favour. She’ll also be attending the march:

But perhaps her time would be better spent trying to convince Theresa May we need a People’s Vote. After all, they are ‘Honourable Friends’.

And finally…

Comedian David Schneider shared the reason he will be at the march:

Our Future, Our Choice Northern Ireland shared the story of a child “of the peace process”. An interesting perspective published by The Times:

Support for the People’s Vote march spans the political spectrum. It spans the different countries of the United Kingdom. The argument for a vote on the final Brexit deal is compelling. And the prime minister must listen.
