Hundreds of thousands march in London to demand new Brexit vote

Demonstrators march past Trafalgar Square on Saturday during the People's Vote March for the Future in London, Britain.

On Saturday an estimated 700,000 people marched in London, calling for the United Kingdom to have a second Brexit vote. Prime Minister Theresa May of the Conservative Party has ruled out another public vote on the subject.

The Labour peer said that it is vital for Theresa May to listen to the people who marched, but Nigel Farage said that a lot of people who voted to leave would not have something to vote for. May, speaking at an inconclusive European Union summit in Brussels this week, said she would consider extending a proposed 21-month post-Brexit transition period for the U.K - one that could keep Britain aligned to European Union rules for more than two years after its March departure.

"I'm sorry that people fell for the lies but we speak to leavers as much as we talk to remainers and they're just as fed up with it as well".

A no deal Brexit is trading at evens on Betfair Sportsbook after Theresa May struggled to make progress in her negotiations with European Union leaders at a summit in Brussels. However, those still in favour of Brexit say a second referendum could trigger a constitutional crisis.

The march will be led by young people who feel their voices "were ignored" during the first referendum, the group said. This contrasted with the nation as a whole, as 52 percent voted to leave. "I am marching for the next generation and the generations to come".

"And if that means there are some hard days in Brussels, well that's just something I have to deal with", she said. Subsequent sociological studies revealed the following picture: Brexit was mostly supported by older people, i.e. a more conservative part of British society, while the young and engaged in entrepreneurial activities part of the population connects the country's future with integration trends.

Some social media called out several over-the-top signs, including one that said "Hitler would be proud of this Brexit".

That said, it is not totally implausible that enough Tory MPs could conclude they would rather deal with those issues than fight a general election which could put Jeremy Corbyn in Downing Street.

May, speaking at an inconclusive European Union summit in Brussels this week, said she would consider extending a proposed 21-month post-Brexit transition period for the U.K - one that could keep Britain aligned to European Union rules for more than two years after its March departure.

"They now want a second referendum to go back to the British people and say 'Oh, we're terribly sorry - we think you've got it wrong, '" she told parliament on Wednesday.

"All of this, from the last three weeks alone, is in addition to the agreements we had already reached", she will say.

She added: "We will take responsibly and sort out this mess".
