The anti-Brexit march that claimed an attendance of around 700,000 was actually attended by 250,000, according to an estimate by the Greater London Authority.
At the time the likes of The Guardian eagerly ran headlines such as “700,000 rally for new Brexit referendum”. The London Evening Standard reported that “‘more than 700,000 protestors’ call for second referendum on Brexit deal in ‘largest demonstration since Iraq War'”.
And as The Sunday Telegraph note, the claim has been made by the so-called People’s Vote campaign that: “On October 20th, over 700,000 people marched from Park Lane to Parliament, demanding their future back.”
But a freedom of information request by the newspaper saw Scotland Yard inform them that: “The Greater London Authority (GLA) has included an estimated attendance figure of 250,000 in a debrief document.”
Nigel Farage responded to the revelation by tweeting: “People’s Vote lied about the number of supporters at their rally in London. Hardly surprising, the pro-EU lobby have been lying to us for over 50 years.”
It demonstrates once again the difference between reality and the increasingly desperate attempt by Remoaners to stop Brexit. Come 29th March 2019, the UK must Leave the European Union!
