‘People’s Vote’ march shows Brexit hasn’t robbed Britain of its wit

According to the police, no less than two million people attended the march for a “people’s vote” on Brexit, in London today (March 23).

And while some couldn’t resist trying to score party political points with barbs at Jeremy Corbyn, we won’t discuss them in this article.

Why would we, when we can have fun with images of the inventive placards that people created for the day?

    The Metropolitan Police issued no figures or comment on the numbers attending the march which, according to the organisers, attracted just over a million…just to put the record straight.

      Have you contacted the person who published the tweet containing that information and asked how they obtained it? If not, then you cannot claim it is inaccurate – just to set the record straight.

      Personally, I think just over a million is incredibly impressive.

        Try following the news media and not just BBC and you will find it. No I have not contacted any Tweet person but remember the “about one million” comes from the organisers.

          Are you trying to suggest that I only follow news published by the BBC? On what do you base this foolish claim? You have not contacted the person you are criticising so you have no basis on which to make your own claim. I will take your comment as a retraction and await your apology for the false claim about me.

        I am suggested that your views on the BBC and alleged bias are well documented and perhaps, therefore, as the item was also on CNN and reported in newsprint up and down the country who also quoted that the Met police did not give a figure or comment and also stated that the organisers have estimated about one million they might be nearer the correct number of attendees. I have no idea who your tweeter is but merely pointing out it seems he or she is a but a single voice and not, seemingly, one with authority. Please advise what you are claiming as being false as I see nothing warranting an apology.

          But your assertion is flawed from the start. I got the “two million” figure from a person on Twitter, not the BBC. It is comments like this that flag you up as someone whose claims aren’t to be trusted.

          Of course you don’t see anything warranting an apology. But you made a false claim about me – compounded here – and you should correct yourself.

        If anything in my comment offends you then I apologise for any umbrage you have taken. My point was that other sources than the BBC, which I know you frequently seek to criticise, supported what I said; I found nothing to support your Twitter contribution.

        • Mike Sivier March 31, 2019 at 7:19 pm - Reply

          Then I accept your apology.

    No wisdom though.

      Many might say the same of your comment, with as much justification.

    As just one of the two million people on the march, it was a deeply moving, inspiring occasion. So many friendly and good humoured people, all of them concerned about the future for young people. There was a wonderful carnival atmosphere with little in the way of a Police presence – there was no need for them – everyone was good natured, with marchers ranging from 1-year-olds to, so I am told, a 96-year-old retired Army Brigadier. A wonderful day.
