People’s Vote campaigners hit streets of Mapperley calling for final say on Brexit

Campaigners calling for a People’s Vote were out in force on the streets of Mapperley on Saturday calling for a say over Brexit plans.

The group, made up of members from European Movement and People’s Vote braved the rain to talk to shoppers on the high street.

David Childs, who is chairman of the Notts European Movement said the event ‘attracted a lot of interest’.

He said: “We found that many shoppers in Mapperley were prepared to sign a petition asking their MPs to call for a final vote.

“Some found our presence a welcome opportunity to voice their worries about many issues other than Europe such as the failing high street, house prices, climate change, knife crime and, as usual, the NHS.”

“Boris had his supporters, but so did the two Jeremys, Hunt and Corbyn.’

“Comments made by Sir John Sawers, former British spy-chief, M16, about the UK having been plunged into a “political nervous breakdown” were also mentioned. “

Susan Martin, the leading People’s Vote activist, was surprised by the interest the group received.

She said: “The campaigners had received more support than she expected in the area. “

  1. The people have already had their say. We have already voted to leave the EU. The “People’s Vote’ do not stand for the people, they represent the liberal establishment.
