'Bollocks To Brexit': 700,000 March In London For Second EU Vote

Around 700,000 people have taken to the streets of London demanding a second public vote over the British government's decision to leave the European Union.

Protesters dressed in blue and yellow to symbolise the colours of the European Union and held signs proclaiming "Never Gonna Give EU Up"

It's the largest demonstration by pro-EU supporters so far in the country as Theresa May's government faces strong public and political backlash over the terms of Brexit.

The march comes following another tumultuous week for the Prime Minister in which she failed to agree on a divorce deal with EU leaders in Brussels.

With just over five months until Britain is due to leave, there is no clarity about what a future trade deal with the EU will look like and some rebels in May’s Conservative Party have threatened to vote down a deal if she clinches one.

James McGrory, director of the People's Vote Campaign told reporters people were marching to have their voices heard.

"People think the negotiations are a total mess. They have no faith in the government to deliver the promises that were made in 2016."

"They feel the Brexit that was promised two years ago is nothing like the one that's going to be delivered," McGrory told the BBC, adding many people who earlier voted 'leave' were involved in the protest on Saturday.

McGrory said the march would be led by thousands of young people.

"[They] now have to live with the consequences of Brexit far longer than the rest of us."

At the march, demonstrators carried placards saying “Brexit is pants”, “Time for an EU turn” and “European and proud.”
