Around 2,400 people filled Central Hall Westminster tonight to drive home the case – made by 700,000 marching on the streets three weeks ago – for the people to have a Final Say on any Brexit deal.
In November 2018, SSTIE produced a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) to assist campaigners wishing to explain or refute common questions and misunderstandings about Brexit and the EU.
This document will be updated as required.
The Brexitometer was out on Sevenoaks High Street on Saturday to ask the opinion of Sevenoaks shoppers. Stormy weather perhaps mirroring UK-EU negotiations. The results provided some pretty stark numbers:
- Less than 5% of respondents thought Brexit promises would be delivered.
- Less than 6% of respondents thought Brexit was going well
- Only 16% of respondents would be happy with No Deal Brexit
- Over 70% of respondents were in favour of a People’s Vote on the final deal.

- 82 people favoured “Stay and reform Europe”
- 2 people opted for “Don’t know / No vote”
