Pro-EU Rally At Trafalgar Square Attracts Thousands Despite Event Being Cancelled Due To ‘Unprecedented’ Response.

Reports the Huffington Post.

Thousands of pro-EU supporters have marched to Parliament where they are chanting anti-Brexit slogans after gathering in London’s Trafalgar Square where a scheduled rally was earlier cancelled.

Pictures emerged on social media soon after 6pm showing crowds of people holding pro-EU banners aloft at Trafalgar Square despite steady showers. Hours later they were seen chanting pro-EU slogans at Westminster.

More than 50,000 people had been expected to attend the London Stays rally which aimed to show the world that “London stands with Europe”.

Channel Four last night stated that the people on the rally were predominantly young.

Yet, indications are: no copies of the Socialist sold, and recruitment to the SWP, and Counterfire: zero.

Equally reports from the pro-Corbyn rally the previous evening state that these groups had failed to lead the masses.

To remedy this Coatesy has the following top-tips: getting down with the kidz  for revolutionary recruiters.

  • Young people are like fruit flies. They can’t remember all that stuff about what a group did as long ago as last week. Campaigning for Brexit? Phooey! Undermining the Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn: that’s all, like, history. The important thing is now you are the best supporters of Jeremy Corbyn.
  • Lessons: young folk love lessons. Tell them about the Wigan Labour Club voters and their concerns about ‘immigration’ . That will go down a treat with the class conscious people who demonstrated yesterday. Sort out the wheat from the chaff.
  • Young ‘uns adore limpets. Many have a limpet vivarium in the their bathrooms.  Stick to them. They will surely appreciate this.

  1. When are these young comrades going to wake up a realize Corbyn is leading them to disaster with his Lexit stance?

  2. Conversations with Iranian family and a close Zimbabwean colleague suggest real fear as to what this represents culturally… a fear of increased prejudice and hatred for non UK born people. Lexit seems like a delusional argument in that context. This is a coup for the anti-immigrant, little-England right.

    Also, notice HP has gone very Brexit (BTL at least) almost like some of the HP commentators are a bit racist?

  3. Yes.

    I have also noticed that some of the anti-Corbyn MPs are attacking him for not listening to ‘concerns’ about immigration.

  6. Letter in yesterday’s Graun:

    I am increasingly troubled by those individuals who are unable to accept the outcome of the referendum. On Monday I read a Daily Telegraph column by a man who, in a desperate attempt at irony, writes under the nom de plume “Boris Johnson”. “Boris” calls for European free trade, a single market, the right of people “to live; to travel; to study; to buy homes and to settle down” anywhere in the EU, and an “intense and intensifying European cooperation and partnership in a huge number of fields”. Will the Europhiles never give up? Do they not understand democracy? Accept it, “Boris”: your side lost.
