The Long March to #Brexit: Parliament Square Rally

Posted: April 1, 2019 by tallbloke in Brexit, censorship, EU Referendum, government, History, People power

The 50 core marchers strode through London with thousands of people from all over the country behind them and joined the throng in Parliament Square on March 29th. After great speeches from leavers left and right, the man himself topped the bill with a short but inspiring message to all democrats.

It took us 14 days to march from Sunderland to Westminster. This bloke has given 25 years of his life to the cause of regaining independence for the UK. Spare him 8 minutes of your time.

We won’t be demoralised or defeated. We will carry on winning. I got back from London late last night. Today I’ll be knocking on doors in my local area getting the signatures I need to stand in the local elections as an independent for Brexit and Democracy.

Twitter is heavily censoring us. The Government is ignoring us. The media is mocking us. None of that matters. Get out on the doorsteps and encourage everyone to give the westminster charlatans a clear message on May 2nd.

There is still time to get a nomination pack from your council and get your ten signatures in before the deadline so you can stand as a democracy candidate in your ward. It doesn’t cost anything. You don’t have to leaflet the whole area. Just give people the opportunity to vote for something different to the big party stitch-up. Stand up for democracy now.

    Well done, Roger and the others.

    Here 12,000 miles away I was talking to my barber today (he’s originally from near Leeds) and he couldn’t understand why politicians are hesitating. Neither can I, nor most Australians.
    Just leave, and save yourself the £39 billion. Let the EU Commissars explain why it should be paid, and what benefit the citizens of Great Britain would get.
    Australia went through this when the UK entered the Common Market and there was weeping and wailing about our future. It wasn’t anywhere near as bad as the Gloomspeakers predicted.

    P.S. I haven’t heard Farage speaking before. Very good.

    The conservatives under Mrs. May have lied to the UK population. She has now become the woman who broke-up the conservative party.
    The lefties at the anti-jewish, pseudo-Marxist, Core-bin Labor party are unelectable for so many reasons.

    So many politician, bureaucrats, and hangers-on within the Westminster bubble have shown themselves to be self-serving hypocrites, out for all they can get, and to hell with electorate, political party, and country.

    So who/what is there to vote for come the next election?

    It is time, last orders was last week.
    Out means out!

    tom, I think you will find that the country need to remove most of the civil servants as well as the idiot MPs.

    All of them have been polluted by the Marxist dogma and if the country is to move forward the gallows at Tyburn need to be re-erected for those guilty of treason – to encourage the others.

    Where is Cromwell when we need him?

  7. BLACK PEARL says:

    No Brainer …. to avoid the future TOTAL destruction of the Conservative Party all May has to do is do nothing. Come out totally free on the prescribed day honouring the referendum result and let those who want to spit their dummys out & resign do so. I’m sure there will be plenty of applications for vacant Ministerial positions. Ministers are two a penny anyway.

    @Tallbloke Nice to meet you on the March in Donny, and then on the next leg
    and I can confirm that Farage led us every step the next day to Soubry’s office in Beeston.
    .. i went to local UKIP meetup tonight, I was kinda disappointed that they were pre-occupied with getting names in for Wednesday so they can have people on the councillor’s ballot jsut to make a statement even if they aren’t elected.
    I’d prefer them to have been discussing a programme of escalating protests to get Proper Brexit implemented
    ..around here even the normal people who voted Remain would join a “Get On With It” march

    Melanie Phillips: The real reason why MPs are dead against No Deal

    So why are MPs refusing to support no-deal on the grounds that it would be “national suicide”, a view which Mervyn King characterises as “a collective nervous breakdown”? The answer is that leaving with no-deal is the only way actually to leave the EU. Since the EU would never agree to terms that really did allow the UK to operate as an independent country, Remainers could be pretty certain that any deal to which its negotiators agreed would inevitably leave the UK still under its thumb.

    Leaving with no-deal is therefore, to them, an utter disaster because it is the only way to deliver Brexit. Which is why these MPs, with the connivance of the Speaker, are now tearing up constitutional convention and parliamentary rules in order to stop it. [bold added]

    Five main reasons why an EU Customs Union would be the worst choice of all
    Sunday, 31 March, 2019

    By Greg Hands MP, former Minister for Trade Policy, 31.03.2019

    There are very real implications for the UK’s future trade policy. In short, a Latvian MEP would have more say over UK trade policy than any elected politician in the United Kingdom. The negatives are both economic and political. Such an arrangement would be unsustainable in the medium and the long-term, as the effect of such a Customs Union – without a seat at the table – would be damaging not only for trade, but also for our businesses and for our foreign policy. There would be a massive democratic deficit when it comes to trade in this country, which would conflict sharply with both our tradition and our future as a free trading nation.

    For OB: Another Brexit anthem. This guy came and entertained us one evening on the March. Great fun.

  12. oldbrew says:

    Thanks TB 😆

  14. oldbrew says:

    Tied in to a customs union where you’re a non-voting member would be an abyss.

  15. Schrodinger's Cat says:

    Roger, when are we going to get a real (not virtual) party with candidates to vote for?

  16. oldbrew says:

    Looks like an open goal for independent candidates in the local elections 😎

  17. BLACK PEARL says:

    Been wondering for some time as to the existence of an EU intelligence / Gestapo dept that threatens the influential who may appose the EU agenda, as it just doesn’t make any sense what May is doing to her own party. I will always remember that ‘hunted’ look on Camerons face during the referendum and thought the same at that time.
    Yvette Cooper is most likely following instructions from Tony Blair to block any form of Brexit. Wouldnt be surprised May seeks his advise also.
    Local elections coming up. so will be voting UKIP as its the only alternative on the form as it looks like they will prevent any MEP elections as they know already what will happen.
    Other parties are just walking dead as far as I’m concerned.
    If there is any civil action coming they can only blame themselves.
    Wonder if they’ll import EU troops if it gets rough ?

    European Parliament approves visa-free travel for Brits after Brexit
    By Alice Tidey • last updated: 04/04/2019

    Britons will be able to stay in the EU visa-free for up to 90 days in any 180-day period. The text specifically states that the post-Brexit visa waiver will only be granted if the UK implements a similar measure for EU citizens.

    France, Spain and Belgium ‘ready for no-deal Brexit next week’
    Chance of May getting 30 June extension appear slim after notes of EU meeting emerge

    Emmanuel Macron’s ambassador said there was no justification, and only danger, in extending UK membership of the EU.

    France has won the support of Spain and Belgium after signalling its readiness for a no-deal Brexit on 12 April if there are no significant new British proposals, according to a note of an EU27 meeting seen by the Guardian.

    The diplomatic cable reveals that the French ambassador secured the support of Spanish and Belgian colleagues in arguing that there should only be, at most, a short article 50 extension to avoid an instant financial crisis, saying: “We could probably extend for a couple of weeks to prepare ourselves in the markets.”
    . . .
    Later, the European parliament’s chief Brexit representative, Guy Verhofstadt, wrote in response to Rees-Mogg’s tweet*: “For those in the EU who may be tempted to further extend the Brexit saga, I can only say, be careful what you wish for.”

    [*stating that the British government should disrupt the EU from within in the event of a long extension of EU membership]
