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.

On Saturday 29th September SSTIE, mounted its biggest ever street campaign for a People’s Vote in Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Westerham. (See photos)
We noted that more younger people are engaging with us and obtained 74 signatures for the People’s Vote while giving out hundreds of leaflets.
On Saturday 8th September 2018 SSTIE joined forces with the local Liberal
Democrats group with a focus on collecting signatures for a People’s Vote.
Well over a 100 signatures were obtained in 2 hours and a ballot box on the Final Say gave the following result :
- 11 people favoured “Hard Brexit / No Deal”
- 1 person favoured the “Chequers Plan”
- 82 people favoured “Stay and reform Europe”
- 2 people opted for “Don’t know / No vote”
People of Swanley demand a final Say 1st September 2018
Saturday’s Brexitometer exercise produced the astonishing result that 77% of the sample of 125 were in favour of a final say and all 5 questions on whether things would be better or worse after Brexit were answered with figures between 64% and 75% on the side of being Worse. This last finding is a complete reversal from our previous poll in Swanley on Wednesday 6th June and leads to the conclusion that there is now a body of opinion in Swanley with real doubts about Brexit .

The People’s Vote March in London drew supporters of a People’s Vote on the Brexit deal from across the UK.
Estimates varied from 100,000 to 500,000, potentially making the People’s Vote march one of the largest and most peaceful protests in London in decades.
Whether you were able to attend or not, please don’t forget to sign and share the People’s Vote petition online!
We’ve adopted a Brexitometer from the Shrewsbury group – this has proven a very interesting talking-point when campaigning, illustrating people’s hopes and concerns over Brexit. If other groups are interested, the details are below:
120 Swanley people took part in the SSTIE Brexitometer survey at Swanley Market on the 6th June.
The main conclusions are :
- The majority* (67%) think that Brexit will be better for them than staying in the UK on a range of issues : See Brexitometer photo
- 60% would like a final say.
The first conclusion is in line with the fact that 70% voted Leave in the referendum in Swanley but the second is at variance with this and makes one wonder whether some doubt is entering into the heads of some leave voters.
