As more and more Britons are realizing Russia manipulated the vote, there are calls to exit the brexit ...

Anti-Brexit Protest: More Than 100,000 Demand Referendum On Brexit Deal
The People's Vote march has been called the biggest Brexit demonstration yet.
https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/ ... ccounter=1

An estimated 100,000 marched on Westminster on Saturday to show their support for a referendum on the final Brexit outcome, two years after the initial vote.

The People’s Vote March set off at 1pm and organisers believe it is the biggest Brexit protest so far.

The mass demonstration through the streets of London comes on the second anniversary of the 2016 referendum.

[snip]

Organisers of the march said at least 100,000 people attended, but police did not provide an official estimate.

[snip]

Organisers of the march said they are preparing for a “summer of action” to “put MPs under greater pressure so that they reassert their sovereignty over the process and recognise the only way to sort out the mess political leaders have made of Brexit is by offering a democratic People’s Vote”.

Organisers said: “This will focus efforts around key moments in the autumn when MPs will have to decide whether to support a bad deal that is so clearly against the national interest.”

Pissing off the Brits is never a smart to do. I hope the MP's listen and exercise their authority.

Well...the Brexit vote was a referendum. If there's a consensus in parliament another referendum could be ordered....I think. The whole thing was as bad as our presidential election. The xenophobes won.

Dunno, to me the real issue - for us here in this country - may be the links between Russian support of Brexit and Russian support of Trump.

Have I mentioned the several visits of that douchebag Nigel Farage to Julian Assange?

Anyway, just saw this morning this will be flying over Parliament when Trump goes to visit the UK.

Sometimes I really love the Brits. Their talent at mockery sometimes, I think, exceeds us provincials in the colonies.

I take it that's a rhetorical question.

Brexit needs a free and fair revote. If Parliament can't void the first one, the Crown might be able to.
