People’s March for Europe: ‘those who voted Leave were lied to’

On Saturday 9 March 2017, thousands of anti-Brexit protesters descended on London to express their anger at the impact leaving the European Union is already having on our country.

Speaking to the Independent, West Berkshire Stronger Together member Tony Vickers said he was not angry with those who voted to Leave the EU:

“They were lied to, and those poor sods are going to get poorer – while the rich politicians who led the Leave campaign, the ones with dosh, are going to be okay.”

What impact is Brexit having for you? Is it helping or hindering you, your family and your business?

 

Democratic Challenge

Stephen Dorrell, chair of the European Movement UK, has challenged the Brexiteers’ position that to oppose Brexit is to be undemocratic.

In his article in The Independent earlier this week, he discusses how circumstances, reality and opinions are naturally subject to change: “Democracy is the means by which the ministers … are subject to constant challenge, and required to provide day by day explanation and justification for the actions they take in our name.”

So to challenge is democratic … just as those in favour of leaving the EU have been challenging our membership since 1975!
