So how did the anarchists get on in the big city yesterday? They were so vocal last week but it seems they have gone quiet? Maybe they missed the coaches or just couldn't be bothered. Gobby bunch. I remember demonstrating against the criminal justice bill. That really was a resistance to tory rule. Anyone else there when we nearly broke through gates at the end of Downing Street and they sent the horses in? It failed of course but we had a good ruck to some kicking tunes. Soundsystem culture. Happy days.

John, would real anarchists have gone on the pro-Remain demo? I can't imagine any group of people less likely to support the Goldman Sachs pretend-'internationalist' neo-liberal project. Purely a day for middle class luvvies.

You are an arse Clifford. There were people there from all sort of backgrounds, all sort of nationalities, ethnicities and all sorts of ages. A more more mixed bunch it would be hard to imagine. The atmosphere was wonderful. Not one closed-minded frightened bigot in sight, just a bunch of people enjoying the common cause and reveling in their diversity.

Its sad to me that we're destined to leave the EU, despite such a mightily narrow vote. I'm at the "acceptance" stage of it all, and it probably won't impact me negatively as much as it will for some people (including many who voted to leave). It seems though we have two extremes - the hardline brexiteers who defiantly feel we've vanquished a "Soviet Union" style system and departed a stifling authoritarian empire that is "dying" anyway, and remainers who think the sky is going to fall down because we won't be as attractive a country to invest/live in, and tariffs will impact trade and decimate the economy (meanwhile encouraging right-wing facism and racism against the immigrants).

As with many of these binary choices, the reality probably falls somewhere in the middle. Britain will survive, but we will have left behind some decent membership perks and also attract an international reputation of self-proclaimed and over-inflated sense of British-exceptionalism. Its unlikely to be a radical tangible change, particularly at a personal level, as British citizens already live in a free, tolerant and open society (compared to say an eastern european nation before the collapse of the Soviet Union). But, still....we get to experience the true freedom to have our bananas as "bendy" as they need be...

Emma Bridgenorth- if you hate your easy-going country so much, why not emigrate to one of the other EU countries while you still can? You probably won't be able to protest so easily, though, and you will have to work for a living.

I can't understand why all the hard Remainer 'internationalists' think it's fine for anyone from one of the 27 EU states to move here but want immigration controls on people from outside the EU. Doesn't sound very 'internationalist to me. In fact, I'd say it's bigoted.

@ Clifford, to be fair though, we currently have reciprocal arrangements with all 27 EU member states (on free movement, work permits, healthcare etc etc). Outside of the EU, we don't. Given that the leave campaign heavily relied on support from the anti-immigration vote, its hardly conceivable that we will have a progressive and reasonable open door policy for non-EU nationals post brexit.
