Hundreds of people from Norfolk joined in the People's Vote 'Final Say' march

Norfolk was represented at the people's vote final march in London on Saturday (19th October).

Several hundred people from our area joined what's being described as the biggest demonstration for 15 years.

The Norfolk for Europe group was founded by local people concerned about the implications of leaving the EU on Britain. 

 

This march was to call for the people to have a chance to have their say on Brexit.

People from Norfolk travelled down to Hyde Park in London to join the march.

There were so many people that the Norfolk Party took 4 hours to cover the two miles to Parliament Square. 

As the march approached Westminster, Parliament voted to postpone a decision on the government's Brexit plan until they have approved the detailed legislation. 

They were also addressed by some MPs after that vote.

Stephen McNair, Vice chair for Norfolk for Europe said:

"Whether you voted leave or remain in the referendum, you deserve a say on whether you want the deal which Boris Johnson is forcing on the people. 

"Every opinion poll in the last 18 months shows that a majority of people now think the decision to leave the EU was wrong. 

"Most MPs, who have had the chance to study the issues carefully, agree and believe that any form of Brexit will make the country poorer and weaker, though many of them feel they should support Brexit because of the referendum vote.

"Most people are tired of Brexit, but accepting the deal does not "get Brexit done". The 31st October would merely be the start of at least another five years of complex negotiations and debate, distracting government from the country's urgent problems, most of which have nothing to do with the EU."
