I was one of the Million in London for the Peoples Vote March

This was my 4th Remain March - and still only the 4th protest I've ever attending in person and we knew it was going to be huge! So proud to be one of the million who marched in London for a Final Say for All.

I say march, in reality it was standing for 3 hours and then shuffling for another 2. We didn't even make it down most of the march but that didn't matter - we were in the middle of a peaceful, friendly crowd, with witty placards and every demographic from very young to old. And I knew I was stood on the right side of history.

I marched on behalf of my children, who were born with the right to live and work in 27 EU countries, in a continent that has known decades-long peace and I will fight for them to keep this right. I'm proud the Liberal Democrats have been consistently standing up for a Final Say on Brexit since the beginning. Only a year ago, we were dubbed extremists, fantasists even, to think the option to Remain and to get there via a public vote was our way through this Brexit mess. Now, we are the insurgent voice.

MPs will ignore us at the peril.

Meanwhile the Revoke Article 50 petition is still climbing. I personally believe only a Peoples Vote will give the legitimacy that we need to Remain but it doesn't hurt our cause or for the media to keep reporting how this petition is growing. If you haven't signed it's here. We fight on!
