    Some stone island goons spotting have been chased off by some people braver than me. All very under the radar mind.

    The actual Brexit march itself is much bigger than I thought it would be - much more Brexitty, with a lot of UKIP people who i don’t think are there just for TR.

    I was hoping to be there’s but now can’t make it. A group of friends are there.

    I send blessings of courage and determination and all kinds of good luck to those out protesting the Far Fight in all its guises.

    Twitter feeds suggest around 5k Brexit Betryal , 15k Stop Tommy Robinson

    Speaker said 15k. Whitehall was about half full from the truck to Trafalgar Square.

    That sounds about right. Three or four times the number of antis as brexitters certainly.

    What was all the pushing and shoving with the cops about north of Trafalgar Square?

    Some one shouted “WATCH OUT HE’s GOT A FLAG” :D

    Getting scoped out by Antifa because we looked too smart casual is a new low point in my life :D

    Yeah, that was funny, we are at the age where we could have been either casuals or coppers. I need more badges....

    5K would be a good turnout for a far-right march, for a relatively more mainstream/respectable UKIPpy affair it sounds pretty poor, especially for the efforts they were putting into it.
     
  21. It’s less than who turned out for the free tommeh stuff by a wide margin.

    Brexit Betrayal Vote 9th December 2018 - about 5,000
    Peoples Vote March October 20th 2018 - about 700,000

    Can pro-Brexit elements ever get a significant crowd out on a demonstration in London?

  25. Can we not meld Brexit votes with support for Fascism. It’s deeply unhelpful. Cheers.

    My question is about demonstrations not the vote. Brexit is not by no means a foregone conclusion now and numbers of people on demos do matter somewhat. I assert that pro-Brexit forces cannot get the numbers on the streets.

    Just back (from the pub) sorry for not hooking up with the Urbanites out today, got distracted by that little scuffle up at Trafalgar Square. Anyway, haven't heard any numbers I believe so reserving judgement for now. By and large though our lot seemed positive and, relatively, united. Barring Swappies trying to be at the front, which is an absurd fucking ordeal but business as usual I suppose.

    Some piece of pondlife shit was on the march with a banner reading, "Jo Cox - False Flag."

    Pro-Brexit forces have allied themselves with Fascist groups so there is a meld. Its a problem for people who believe in Brexit. Pro EU people also have some unsavoury allies but it doesn't appear quite so bad.
