People’s Vote campaigners heading to Arnold this Saturday

A group calling for a vote on a final deal for Brexit are heading to Arnold on Saturday (2) to urge them to get behind the campaign.

Campaigners for a People’s Vote will be taking to the streets of the town to encourage people to write to their MPs asking them to let voters decide what should happen next over Brexit.

Members of the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire People’s Vote Campaign say the government has lost control of the process and Parliament cannot agree on a way forward, so the only sensible option is to go back and consult voters.

One of the group’s founding members, Susan Martin, said: “Tuesday’s votes in Parliament show the government is still no further forward, is wasting time and is dragging the negotiations out in a very irresponsible way.

“The deal will leave us poorer, less safe and with less control.  It’s time to let the people decide with a People’s Vote.”

The campaigners will set up their stall and be handing out leaflets and postcards in Front Street opposite the Market from 11am onwards.

As well as in Nottingham, events are taking place all over the country, with thousands of activists and supporters involved. Street stalls will be set up in towns and cities the length and breadth of the country.

          1. It does no harm to prepare. After all, your foreign paymasters will be delighted if their drones riot, and will try to make it happen.

  1. The reception they will get in Arnold will be as cold as the current weather.
    Hope they have a very uncomfortable, cold wasted day.

  2. We’ve had a people’s vote. The referendum, and it was the largest democratic mandate in our history. These sad losers are anti-democratic fascists.

    1. Fascists? Are you sure? I’m just very concerned that Brexit will be a disaster for our economy. For example Toyota has said their production will be affected adversely. Nissan just announced production of the x trail will be in Japan not Sunderland. It’s about jobs.

  3. Lookforward to chatting about our differences without silly threats.

    This isn’t the first time we have come to Arnold the people have always been very friendly.

  4. One person, one vote once only is anti-democratic fascism- it was how Hitler consolidated power in Germany in 1933. People are entitled to revisit the issue of our EU membership again, given what we now know about the massive violations of electoral law which took place in the first referendum and for which Leave.eu were fined £120 000 yesterday and are being investigated by the National Crime Agency, and also given that the original arguments for leaving the EU have fallen apart. Did the issues with the Northern Ireland/ Irish Republic border, or supply chain disruptions leading to stockpiling figure at all in the Leave campaign’s propaganda?
    If the electorate still think leaving is such a good idea then ardent Leavers should have noting to fear from a 2nd confirming vote.

    1. So Jay, assume we have another referendum and you scare people into remaining in the EU. In another 18 months public opinion is said to change again. Would you back another referendum?
      Thought not.

  5. If a 2nd referendum is held and unlike the first, is scrutinised thoroughly, so unlike the first, it isn’t tainted with the illegality, which would have made any other poll result inadmissable, and if the result confirms a wish amongst the UK electorate to leave the EU- then we have to accept the result. Referenda are not good ways of resolving complex questions- that’s why we live in a representative, not a plebiscite, democracy. But, under the circumstances, a 2nd referendum would seem to be the only fair way to resolve the current impasse.
    What would we do after a Leave result, should, contrary to current polling, it should occur? We would hold those who sold you Brexit to account. Whether you would vote Leave or Remain, you deserve to have your social and employment rights, consumer and environmental protections, protected, not stripped away, which judging by their past comments and beliefs, the Brexiteers with their belief in a low tax, deregulated free market economy, are going to impose on you. The EU was blamed for a lot which was properly the responsibility of our own government. In or out of the EU, it’s up to all of us to hold the government to account.

  6. Also- the public should be offered a clear plan if the 2nd referendum confirms a Leave vote. In my view- it won’t be anywhere near as good as the deal we already have, staying within the world’s largest free trade bloc, but the last referendum was a staight in/out referendum with David Cameron being so sure Remain would win that he didn’t bother formulating a plan for what the government would do in the event of a Leave result, for example, how the UK could exit the EU with the least economic political and social disruption- the issues with Northern Ireland, potential supply side disruptions with the need for stockpiling, disruptions of commercial air travel, etc should have been foreseen by the government well before the referendum was called and planned for. When the Irish government held their referendum on repealing the 8th amendment of the Irish constitution to legalise aabortion, they did preparatory work with citizens’ assemblies first to see if there was public appetite for a referendum, then they also had a plan for how abortion legislation would be implemented in the event that the vote went the way that it did.

  7. And as for the allegation that People’s Vote are beholden to foreign paymasters- that’s a bit rich isn’t it, considering the degree of dark money which Leave.eu received in the last campaign, and are being investigated for.
    If you want to protect democracy then look not just at the result but the process which led to the result.

  8. And as for People’s Vote scaremongering the public into backing remaining in the EU- it’s companies like Airbus, etc who are stockpiling components to continue manufacturing in this country, financial services companies like Barclays Bank, and Jacob Rees-Mogg’s own Somerset Capital, who are transferring assets out of the UK, as is leading Brexiteer James Dyson, and the government itself, at national and local levels, which is planning for shortages of essential supplies- no-one in the People’s Vote campaign told them to do so.
    We’re not scaremongering- they are preparing. The public were entitled to make of that what they will.
    but it wasn’t what they were told to expect back in 2016.

    1. The funny thing is you people pretending to be ‘the people’. It’s the people who rebelled and voted for Brexit. You extreme remainers are backed by the globalist political establishment. You are pawns.You do NOT represent the people.

      1. EU paymasters? I’d love to meet these figments of your imagination as they would owe me years of back pay.
        Combined with the anti-democratic fascist,extremist, remark they just make you look like you are using words uttered by others without any understanding of their meaning (at least you didn’t say traitors)

        The very essence of the democratic process is to challenge and oppose votes if you think they are wrong accepting any vote as set in stone and unchallengeable “we won you can stop it” is as far from democracy as it’s possible to go and is pure simple totalitarianism but would be in keeping with the 1933 style of politics that is the referendum result.

        Tell me if remain had won and you then found out everything was a lie and the vote had been fraudulent what would your reaction of been?

        Ps The people of Arnold was quite welcoming even in the cold weather.

      2. David, Most people want a second look at this. It’s reasonable in the circumstances. Why are you so agressive about this?

      3. Globalist political establishment? Really?
        As opposed to the leave campaign. Arron Banks who runs dubious offshore companies incl.one in Malta where Russian’s were sold buy Maltese status, the Russians themselves, and right wing evangelists in the US.
        If Brexit happens the UK will become a pawn to the US and China. It’s will lose it”s status in the worlds most enviable trading bloc.
        The first referendum should not have happened, but our country’s future is so important, it may be that another vote is needed to get our weak parliament out of the mess.

  9. Globalist political establishment? Exactly what do you mean? 700000 people of all ages and from all walks of life who rallied in Central london last October? Just about every organisation involved in the running of our economy and public services? It sounds like a term drawn from the lexicon of paranoid consipracy theory but I’m open to your explanation. You would be just as entitled to vote in a 2nd referendum as any one else in the electorate.
    And if you really believe we don’t reflect a significant section of public opinion, why would you feel so threatened over a 2nd referendum to confirm such a huge constitutional decision? We in People’s vote would accept the outcome of a 2nd referendum- Remain would likely win but there is a significant chance Leave would too- that’s a risk we accept. Or do you not think leave could win without recourse to propagating lies again, huge electoral lawbreaking, dark money and covert Russian interference?

  10. Globalist political establishment? Really?
    As opposed to the leave campaign. Arron Banks who runs dubious offshore companies incl.one in Malta where Russian’s were sold buy Maltese status, the Russians themselves, and right wing evangelists in the US.
    If Brexit happens the UK will become a pawn to the US and China. It’s will lose it”s status in the worlds most enviable trading bloc.
    The first referendum should not have happened, but our country’s future is so important, it may be that another vote is needed to get our weak parliament out of the mess.
