Thread Name: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Just on my way home from the local "Defend Democracy" rally. A hand held loudhailer was passed to anyone who wanted to speak. One person tried to get everyone to rally round Corbyn and was effectively shouted down by loud calls calls of "stop the coup!" until he was obliged to hand the loudhailer back. Several other speakers said they voted leave but protecting democracy was why they were here - and they were warmly welcomed.

Speaker after speaker said that for them, this was not about Brexit, even though that was important. And it was definitely about unity, not party.
