While we were setting up in Tonbridge at 1000, 4 members of the Tonbridge Labour Party, who were heading for a meeting in London stopped and leafleted with us for an hour. We very much appreciated this gesture.
Four members of Tonbridge & Malling For Europe also joined with us and again we were delighted to have their support.
Together with the 11 SSTIE members who were in Tonbridge on Saturday this made a formidable leafleting group – so much so that one passer-by remarked that there were too many of us! We actually distributed many leaflets entitled The lies and truths of the EU, Imagine If, and the Arrangements for the March on the 23rd.
Common themes on Saturday were:
a) that those Leavers who stopped and spent any time with us had not changed their mind since the referendum 2016.
b) those who refused to take leaflets did so politely; and
c) Remainers seemed more encouraged
Our posters are taken from the Led by Donkeys campaign
Our leaflets setting out lies and truths around the EU, and demanding a people’s vote have been updated to reflect the evolving mess around Brexit.

SSTIE were campaigning on the streets of Tonbridge for the first time on Saturday 9th December. We had 21 volunteers over 4 hours from 10 am to 2 pm, during which time we spoke to hundreds of people and we were pleasantly surprised by how positive the overall response was.
The majority of the people we spoke to think that Brexit is a mess and that it is not what people voted for – no matter how they voted in the referendum.
