Thousands upon thousands gathered in London to celebrate the European Union and the UK’s membership of it.

London wasn’t the only city to host an anti-Brexit march on the 60th anniversary of the founding of the organisation that became the European Union. There were several others, This Writer understands.

And lots of speeches. Perhaps the main point is that the UK is so badly divided over its membership of Europe that no action could possibly be considered right.

If we leave, in accordance with the referendum vote last year, then we’re doing so on the basis of false information and our economy – our quality of life – will suffer as a result, even more than it is at the moment, simply as a result of having a Conservative government.

And with no European Union laws to moderate Tory excesses, we’d have to think very carefully indeed about who we elect into Parliament after any departure from the EU. Has anybody considered that?

Also, what about the alleged legal requirement for Theresa May to seek ratification for her plans? If she doesn’t go back to Parliament, or even to the people, then there will always be someone saying Brexit has no legality – possibly with justification.

And, knowing what we know now about the original referendum, can anybody expect to be taken seriously when they claim the choice was made in full knowledge of the facts?

All things considered, wouldn’t it be better to have another plebiscite – with all claims fact-checked before they are put to the public?

These people thought so:

And so did this man, whose protest was extremely polite:

And then there was this comment – slightly less polite:

With such division, how can it be unreasonable to stop and think again?

Tens of thousands of people joined an anti-Brexit march to call for Britain to remain in the European Union.

The Unite for Europe march in London coincided with events to mark 60 years since the EU’s founding agreement, the Treaty of Rome, was signed.

A minute’s silence to remember the victims of the Westminster attack was held ahead of speeches at a rally in Parliament Square.

Prime Minister Theresa May will trigger the exit process from the EU next week.
