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.
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.

One percent of the UK population converged on London this weekend in one of the biggest protest marches in UK history. Buses from Inverness, Truro and everywhere in-between. Standing-room only on Saturday trains to London. Expats flying home from across the continent to stand up and – finally – be counted. 700,000 people walked shoulder-to-shoulder to make our voice heard, and demand a people’s vote.
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”
