We Were There!
By Tony Clayton
Sevenoaks Lib Dems and their friends were there in force, as part of the million strong demonstration on 23rd March.
Gareth Willis, our new Sevenoaks Parliamentary Candidate, has thanked the many people - certainly hundreds, maybe thousands - from Sevenoaks, Swanley, Dartford and Gravesham, who joined the million plus marching in London on Saturday for the 'Put It To The People' campaign. The determination, energy and unity on the streets in support of Britain's place in Europe were in stark contrast to the growing disarray in the Government.
In the general election only Liberal Democrats argued that a final vote by the British people was essential to stop Brexit being hijacked by the political extremes. As the Brexit crisis deepened it became very clear that the promises of 2016 evaporated. The most likely outcome of Brexit is for Britain to be economically poorer and that our diminished status will leave us increasingly vulnerable in a globalised world
Adrian Banks from Meopham says "Saturday was incredible - impressive for the gentleness and good humour of everyone involved. No sign of the police either. Hope for all in spite of the disarray in Westminster.
