A million people on the streets of London or – according to the German media 1.5 million – and allegedly according to Police about 2 million although including quite a lot of chidren. Not that children don’t count but as Police seem to count from the air on the basis of persons per square metre it is slightly less clear cut. It is further indicative of numbers being very large that the Police started off the march early because of the sheer quantity of people piling up at the back of the queue. They also closed streets in addition to those originally scheduled.
So that is the second really big march on the same subject within six months – one of about a million and one of more than a million.
One of the principal purposes of Parliamentary democracy was (and is) to get the mob off the streets. Now fortunately these demonstrators cannot be described as a mob – but there were an awful lot of them.
This suggests the complete failure of Parliamentary democracy. It is now 2 years 9 months since we voted on Brexit and Parliament has taken no decisions on this single most important issue.
What, I wonder, do they think they are they there for?
