The million strong march was marked by good humour, noticeably more younger people than the previous demonstration,  and the participation of a strong Left Bloc as well as other Labour anti-Brexit contingents.

Former Revolutionary Communist Bendan O’Neill was already frightened at the “terrifying spectacle” of the anti-Brexit petition to revoke Article 50.

I’m not going to lie: it scares me that three million of my fellow citizens would sign a petition calling for the cancellation of the largest democratic vote in UK history.

A petition against the people

In a further hopeful sign the Morning Star, organ of the Hard Brexit under WTO rules British Communist Party and its hangers on, was cut to the quick.

Commenting on the marchers they backed a united front from below to back Brexit

What they desire cannot come about except through a violation of democracy and popular sovereignty and then only under the leadership of politicians and a media totally compromised by decades of austerity and war.

This moment will pass. The millions of workers who voted Remain have more in common with the millions who voted to Leave than with those who lead them.

Remainers have more in common with Leavers than those leading them

Cds Coates and Toby predicted that Andrew Murray, the scion of the noble Slains Pursuivant, Venerable Order of St John, the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of St George and the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, and the other Brexit ‘Ms’, must have spat nails all day.

Padre Giles Fraser saw  what these masses had made and did not say it was good.

  1. Let’s ‘put it to the people then’: “Should we have a second referendum on Brexit?”

  3. Read Paul Johnson’s Modern Times, he credits Gasperi,Adenaur and deGaulle of sharing a Carolingian ideology in founding the EU. Yet Paul Johnson’s son Daniel and his website Standpoints support Brexit along with Norman Podhoretz and Frank Gaffney.

  5. Excellent btl response to O’Neill’s Faragist whinging at Spiked Online:

    I have a right to my opinion as you have to yours. And I have a right to access whatever legal and democratic processes are available to me to express my opinion. To petition is not “undemocratic”, nor is demanding another vote. Voting is not “undemocratic”.

    Voting is only “undemocratic” in the topsy-turvy world that you and your friends have cynically created A world in which the 2016 vote is a poker game where you won big and you want to scarper. And you dare to pose as a champion of workers rights: rights that our ancestors had to fight for over centuries and that this legislation will sell down the river? You don’t know the meaning of shame, Brendan. Democracy is for life, not just for Christmas.

  7. If the next election leads to yet another Conservative government there should be a hard press for Clive Lewis to challenge Corbyn for leadership (I can’t imagine Corbyn resigning willingly).

  8. There are a number of points here but the most important one is legal and constitutional. Is there a way to actually have, legally and within the constitutional framework, another referendum? I can’t that there is so all of the demands for one are simply hot air and posturing.
