    Technically the march is open to anyone who wants another vote. Leavers too. So it’s not a pro EU event. Although I suspect leavers will want to stay well away because it will be effectively seen as very pro EU.

    I do not doubt for one second the sincerity of all those involved. However, if Mrs May reacts to this march the way that Tony Blair reacted to the march against war with Iraq, they are heading for disappointment. As Kenneth Clarke famously said “A bloody difficult woman”. It’s time someone informed her, as they should have done to Blair, that we don’t elect Presidents in this country, we elect members of Parliament. It’s time to give them a real chance to sort things out and, if they manage to do so, to restore their reputation.

    It’s ironic that, the last time we tried to ‘go it alone’ back in 1956, it was the President of the USA, with whom we were supposed to have a ‘special relationship, whose threat to undermine sterling and therefore pull the ground out from under our feet, that made us see the error of our ways. Compare that with today where, instead of threats, the organisation with whom we have had a close, if not quite special, relationship for well over forty years, has offered us a ‘get out of jail’ card. It makes you wonder who our real friends are.

    Tom Brake’s comments about the previous march said that there was no violence and there were no arrests.
    News coverage of this march did not mention any violence or arrests, so presumably there was none.
    A petition achieved a record 4.2 million signatures plus. The initiator of the petition received 3 death threats by telephone. She is an old lady, 70 plus, who had not expected the petition to grow so fast, or get so big. Is it logical to try to inhibit her future actions? if any? or are they expressing their feelings of revenge, while knowing about the lack of police numbers?
    One million marchers and more arrived even after all the MPs and MSP had spoken.
