Hundreds of people from across Lincolnshire took part in a march in London to protest to call for a vote on the final Brexit deal.

As previously reported, members and supporters of the Lincolnshire European Movement group joined The Put It To The People March in central London on Saturday, March 23.

There were also more than 65 campaigners from the North East Lincolnshire European Movement taking part in the march.

Over a million people from across the UK took part in the march. Over 200 coaches transported people from across the country including from as far as Inverness. There was even a specially chartered train to bring over 500 people from the West Country.

The march started on Park Lane and made its way to Parliament Square for a mass rally and speeches.

Two coaches with a total of around 90 people traveled to the march from Lincoln.

People also travelled independently from all over the county with a rough estimate of over 300 members and supporters present at the march.

Over a million people joined the protest in London.

Chair of the Lincolnshire European Movement John Bland told The Lincolnite: “The march went well and it was certainly the biggest I’ve been on.

“We got a lot of national publicity on Saturday but in terms of what happens next depends on what happens in Westminster. There will be various votes in parliament this week.

Hundreds of people from across Lincolnshire took part in the march in London.

“We know we are not leaving the EU on March 29. Politicians are running out of options. There is no real agreement at Westminster so ultimately if you can’t agree there is only going to be two courses of action.

“Revoke Article 50 and put the whole thing on ice or put it back to the people for a People’s Vote. A referendum started it and I feel a referendum should also finish it.”

Committee Chairman at North East Lincolnshire European Movement Brian Milne said: “Brexit is already causing deep damage to Britain, threatening local jobs, businesses, the NHS and living standards in North East Lincolnshire.

“I was so proud to shout through my loud hailer outside of the gates of Downing Street lets make some noise London three cheers for staying in the EU hip hip horay hip hip horay hip hip horay and everyone around me chanted the same.

“The discredited Brexit deal, Theresa May is still trying to force on Parliament, bears little resemblance to what was promised in the 2016 referendum.

There were lots of banners and signs on show.

“The only way to solve this political crisis is put whatever deal is decided by Parliament back to the British people and let them decide.”
