In view of recent horrific events is the Remain March still going ahead tomorrow?

Why shouldn't it go ahead? The shooting of Jo Cox by a lonely man with serious mental health problems shouldn't be politicised. Some people are already trying to use her death to bolster the Remain vote.

As far as i can see on the websites it does not say how long the suspension is for, and in any case I would sincerely hope that the organisers of the march take steps to ensure that there is no reference to the incident in any form. As the Earl said, it shouldn't be politicised.

I'm sorry, but until the police have fully investigated the killer's connections with Britain First or other far right groups and how a lonely man with serious mental health issues managed to get hold of a gun and ammunition to murder a pro-Remain MP with a history of helping immigrants, then this is issue is already 'politicised' as far as I am concerned

Toynbee, Lucus and Baker middle class liberalism at it's best.
These are the people that are the reason why we should be voting to leave.
Hypocrites all 3 of them.

Who does Toynbee, Baker and Lucas think they represent.
They are the smug middle class, who haven't a clue what its like to be working class and the problems associated with it. Makes your blood boil.

I'm curious to know which members of our community will join Polly Toynbee on the walk tomorrow (and if Toynbee has the nerve to show her face after her disgraceful article in today's Guardian).

I wonder which of her houses she will be staying in. I'm pretty sure it won't be her place in Tuscany, not unless she gets an early flight, she loves flying to and from her Tuscany home, she considers it her contribution to climate change. U

It's not all about the working class, who you claim to represent, Dragon. Other people - yes even smug middle class types (roll out the stereotypes ) have a right to representation. So if Remainers and undecided choose to give up their Saturday morning to listen to Lucas, Toynbee et al then that is up to them. I'm surprised by the violence of some of the language coming from Leavers on this forum in the light of yesterday's events

She's an utter disgrace and has been at the forefront of the liberal luvvie warfare against the working class.
These people ruin lewes and ruin the country with their Blairite, EU traitorous unthinking rubbish, it's un-empirical, obsessed with identity politics, and constantly putting conclusions before the facts to suit their agenda.

Peter Perfect I don't claim to represent the working class but I am one of them and I feel disenfranchised. My old Labour party is now made up of smug middle classes that have never had to worry when there's too much month left once the money has run out.
Bring back the Prescott's the Hattersley's the Blunket's.
Not the Toynbee"s,Blair's, Mandelson's Kinnock's and Umunah's.
The speakers at this march do not represent anyone but they just think they do.
I shall not be anywhere near it

I like your points, Dragon. The referendum seems to have really brought class issues out into the open. I think that's a good thing. We have such huge gulfs of inequality in this country. People cannot help which 'class' they are born into but how can we build bridges between the different camps. I wish I knew. I had a pretty middle class upbringing, but am kind of poor now. But poor 'in a middle class way', as my friend would say.

Lewes seems to be a town (one of many, probably) where very rich and very poor live alongside each other. Often the poor are quite unseen, especially in the centre of town. And I guess their needs are not well met in terms of housing, shopping etc

Sorry if I sound like a guardian-reading, yoghurt-knitting Green Party member. Can't really help who I am, I guess.
I do have good intentions, though. Anyway, goodnight all.

That's okay Susie, though in the working class we do get a bit tired of the middle class thinking we're a sub-species that either has to be trodden on or 'helped'. We are the majority and we're quite capable of acting in our own interests.
