Just reading the Sussex Express i see the organiser of the March- JOANNA CARTER believes Lewes residents are solidly for Remain in the EU, WHEN did she knock on everyones door in Lewes to ask the residents their opinions on the EU. She certainly did not knock on my door or my neighbours to ask our opinions.

I believe the March on Saturday should be cancelled out of respect for the death of Jo Cox MP.

She's a Typical ignorant bigot in the remain camp not a clue what the vast majority of people are saying. She probably enjoyed watching the geldof brigade sneering and shouting at fisherman on a peaceful protest.
Agree with concerned shouldn't go ahead and won't change anyone's mind.

It's a political campaign that inevitably involves folk with different opinions, including some who have not yet made up their minds. There is nothing wrong with any group of supporters (of either side) taking to the streets to try to influence voters. In many ways, face to face campaigning is the purest form of democracy. To argue that you personally don't know many people who will vote REMAIN is simply to admit that you ought to get out more.
This march is part of the "democracy" that the Brexit camp claim to be supporting.

Face to face campaigning is certainly not the purest form of democracy. The purest form of democracy is a well educated population and the ballot box. Demonstrations, public assemblies and the like do form a part of a healthy democracy, but they have inherent problems and dangers. The way humans behave in crowds is often totally at odds with the way they behave when given decent information to reflect on in private.

I have no problem with the March it's the fact that yet again we have a Guardian Reading yoghurt knitter who assumes she speaks for us all. It's just like when the taxi driving Green Party Councillor Imagine Codpiece proclaimed that nobody wanted the Boxing day hunt in Lewes.

I am certain that nobody on the REMAIN side imagines that they "speak for all". We all know that there is a case to be put and an argument to be won. Let's just listen to Ms Toynbee and the others, without hurling insults around.

Boris dear, I do NOT read the Grauniad. I read Woman's Weekly for the knitting patterns.
