I'd say 40-50K; it's hard to judge when it's that size. It was one of the larger ones I've seen in London.
That'll be Pompous Dave Smeaton and the March for England lot then.
Competitively tendered streets
I wasn't there but traffic in the west end was fucked for hours. Seemed to be a biggish demo.
Green park to parliament square with the whole route full and probably 45 minutes at green park after the front finished. Even the Met said 20 people...
20! But what people!
Must have been quite a few there - even the Daily Mail has it at 25,000 terror-enabling traitors.
Over 50k I reckon but it's hard to judge.
Yeah, on reflection it was more than 50K. Park Lane was completely flooded even given that people were in the park too. Not as large as the women's march but larger I think than any previous Brexit demo, and some of those were pretty big.
That Mail piece says "Organisers gave estimates of 100,000 attendees at the event, but the Met Police said it was closer to 25,000. " so 40,000-50,000 sounds on the money.
(read it coz wanted to know who was furious. As is, fair play for life goes on, so must we, rather than the more mawkish responses to Wednesdays murders - if crowd control cops are detecting, they are doing policing wrong).
4 days til Art 50
EU grant funded in conjunction with council and private redevelopment agency streets!
I glad I went, even more now that I know it's pissed off some bile monkey at the Mail.
( and the organic petit fours at the end were delicious )
Sorry if we've had this already, but I've been away from t'interweb all day (not at this event)....
"Praise the lard!"
Do we finally have peak Guardian?
Guardian shit thread >>>
If the cops said closer to 25k than 100k you're looking in the 62k region. Or you should be anyway.
too many lib dem branded EU badges being given out.these dirty backstabbing fuckers are worming their way back.
FFS. What a cunt. (At the bloke in 39s pic, not you not-bono-ever)
Cliff Richard is looking well.
They are the only political party with a hard anti-Brexit line, and it's had a response electorally. They've noticed this and they're using it as much as they can now.
I mean I can't stand them but there was a massive street demonstration in London today - and there were marches in other cities too - where the only mainstream political party that was addressing what they wanted was the Lib Dems. People can make all the Waitrose jokes they like but this is significant.
Which is quite ironic, given they facilitated the tory administrations that brought us here.
They have done well being the only anti Brexit party ,attacking their ex partners and criticising Labour for their poor record in opposition. They have picked up Council seats and obviously the Goldsmith seat.With the margin between Brexit and Remain seemingly fixed and Labour in opposition seemingly fucked they have quite a bit of mileage left in this strategy.
Twitter says the demo was hideously white and hideously middle-class. Does anyone who actually went think it wasn't?
