Bromley Liberal Democrats joined people from other parties, and many people from no party, in the historic march of 700,000+ people through Central London on Saturday calling for a People’s Vote.
“The Lib Dems travelled up by train collecting members along the route from Orpington Bromley and Beckenham. We knew something special was happening as the normally empty mid morning train filled up to capacity with people travelling to the march” said Rich Wilsher, one of the organisers of the Bromley contingent. “There were people of all ages, some family groups, some with placards, some with face paint and some just came as they were, all just wanted to go there and be counted.”
“Our experience in our recent street stalls around the borough – Bromley, Beckenham and Orpington – has shown us that the mood of the people has changed dramatically since the referendum in June 2016. No one wants the kind of Brexit the Conservative Government are promising to deliver, whether you voted Leave or Remain. Saturday saw the biggest march since the Iraq war on an issue that will define our generation. “
The Lib Dems will be handing their borough wide petitions to the 3 Conservative MPs for the area (Bob Stewart, Bob Neill and Jo Johnson) to show them the level of support for a People's Vote in the borough that they represent, urging them to be the voice we need in the House of Commons as Parliament debates the final deal.
