Redditch campaigners join People's Vote march in London over Brexit

Correspondent 22nd Oct, 2018

REDDITCH members of the Worcestershire For Europe campaign group joined the crowds of 700,000 people at the People’s Vote march in London on Saturday.

Group chair Stuart Thomson said: “Whilst we have attended many protests since the referendum, this one was colossal.

“The fact we were able to fill five coaches from this area alone shows the strength of feeling.

“We are finding both Remain and Leave voters are furious about the broken promises, the damage to our economy and the farcical handling of the Brexit negotiations.

“The only way to avoid a huge constitutional crisis which will affect adversely our children for decades, is to trust the people to decide the way forward, with a vote on whatever deal Mrs May achieves.

“As an MP of a leave-voting constituency, we respectfully ask that Rachel Maclean lets her constituents know what Brexit will mean for them in terms of job-losses, damage to our NHS and price hikes.

“If people are expecting to see the fantasy Brexit promised by Vote Leave, they are in for a huge shock.

“Of course we understand the sheer frustration of those who voted for the idealistic Brexit we were promised, but as the government have proved quite spectacularly, it is undeliverable.”
