I fear we'll end up with bremainer at the helm. Instead of spending time preparing for being out of the EU we'll waste of load of time longing for the good old days of being in the EU. We're our people, accept it and move on to something productive.

Can someone remind me the purpose of" having a march"?I can sell you a nice lapel badge or car sticker with " don't blame me, I voted remain" on it if you really need to virtue signal. It's cheaper and is more likely to affect someone positively than trolling along holding a poster.

@Marcher, @Southstreeter, I think you are allowed to protest, even if you have a different opinion to the majority. For example, I think supporters of the Labour, Liberal Democrat and Green parties are allowed to demonstrate even though the Tories won the Genral Election. That's kind of the way this country works.
Those who voted Remain last week clearly knew what they were voting for - maintenance of the status quo. I would be interested to know what those who voted to leave thought they were voting for, given that the main protagonists have effectively gone into hiding, and appear to have no idea what to do next. What klnd of 'leave' are you after? Are you looking for a total cessation of all contact with the rest of the EU? So no free trade, no free movement of labour or capital? I am sure you thought this through very carefully before voting, so please feel free to set out your case, and explain how happy you are with the result.

I voted remain. I accept the result. The majority voted to leave. It's called democracy.

Congratulations @Marcher. I voted remain too. The problem is, that it is not at all clear what the Leavers have voted for, as I tried to set out above. Neither Johnson nor Gove have bothered to explain what happens next. The 'Leavers' have voted for a pig in a poke.

As London marches go, the attendance was pretty low. I think most people have accepted the result for better or worse and are now waiting for the politicians to pull their fingers out.

The main protagonists on the leave side are in hiding because they never expected leave to win. What, you mean they're actually all on the same side as the main remain protagonists Jonny? Could be!
Watch and learn how the establishment goes about fu**ing over 17 million people.

It's so gratifying to watch you plebs tearing each other to pieces over whatever our media tell you to fight about. To be quite honest we don't care if you're in the EU or not, although it's much easier to lobby one parliament than lots of separate ones. Wait until we annihilate Iran then you'll really know what mass immigration means,dear Hillary has promised us that when she gets in. Don't worry about me,darlings my money is invested in the far east and I have property all over the world. Cheerio,I'm off to the club for brandy and cigars.

Jeff, the BBC always covers demonstrations the Establishment approves of. The rest it ignores while the police kettle the protestors. You see, you were marcing in support of the EU neo-liberal project favoured by Caeron, Osborne, Blair, Brown, the banks, the financial institutions, and big business. This may interest you:

The marchers may get what they want. May is the current fav to become Tory leader. Gove has shot himself in the foot, he's out of it. On TV today May said she would invoke Article 50 "when the time was right". That could mean anything.
Quite a few commentators now saying it might not happen at all. There seems to be some question over whether anyone can invoke Art.50 without first putting it to parliament. And of course, the referendum was advisory, not legally binding, they could just ignore the whole thing.
I don't think they will though, I reckon it will be delayed. Then delayed again. And again.
Apparently there is a change to the way the House of Lords works that was agreed and is still waiting for implementation. It was agreed in 1911. Governments are very good at doing nothing when it suits them.

It seems a bit rum to me that Farage insisted on there being a second referendum if they lost, but all of a sudden different rules are going to be applied and nobody's allowed to complain about the majority being duped into voting for something they don't really understand.
