We had helpers come from Stafford and Tipton. Indeed we also had a helper turn up, who wasn’t a member or a registered supporter. They were an ex-Labour member, who had gone out of their way to find our action day on the Liberal Democrats Local Events Page and had gotten in touch. They helped on Saturday and Sunday. Yesterday they decided to join the Liberal Democrats!

Thank you to everybody who came to help on both days. There is much more to do before the end of polling day. If you can help get in touch or make a donation.

The reception as we went around Market Drayton was very good. Mirroring the mood we are seeing nationally. The Conservatives and Labour are in freefall and have no answers to the biggest issue of the day. The Liberal Democrats are the strongest remain party and we are gathering momentum every day as 1000s of people joining the party – over 3,000 joined in the two weeks after the Local Elections.

These polls are our best for years and follow our best set of local election results ever!¬†It is clear the Liberal Democrats have the momentum, that we are the strongest remain party and remainers need to back the Lib Dems to stop Brexit. The D’Hondt form of PR for the Euro Elections on May 23rd is biased towards big party blocks – effectively rounding works upwards rather than pure PR where seats are allocated based on the proportion of votes cast for each party. So the more people who support the Liberal Democrats the better. We can top the poll if people back us. Pledge your support here:

Over 700,000 march to Demand Better than Brexit

Featured Video Play Icon
Last Saturday 4 coaches from Shropshire made the journey down to London for the People’s Vote march to demand better than Brewit and a final say on the deal with an option to¬†remain. At the previous march¬†in June, there was only 1 coach from Shropshire. 220 went by coach with significant numbers travelling down independently¬†by train/car. A¬†large contingent of these was from North Shropshire.
Many Lib Dems from across Shropshire and North Shropshire in particular joined the 700,000 demanding a final say

Like the movement as a whole, the group represented the whole political spectrum, including Lib Dems, Greens, Labour and Conservative supporters and many with no political affiliation at all, coordinated by Open Britain Shrewsbury.

Over 250 Shropshire residents demanded a final say on the Brexit deal, with an option to Exit from Brexit and remain
The official tally was 700,000 people but 840,000 has been suggested by the Metropolitan Police. It is clear that the march was 4 times larger than the last time. As more details of the deal or no deal emerge every day, these numbers reflect the growing demand for a People’s Vote with a¬†final say on the deal and an option to remain.
Over 700,000 people marched for over 2 hours, with a 2 hour delay from the front to the back of the march

The contingent from Shropshire formed up outside the Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane, at 11:30 pm РThe march started at 12 pm but it was another 2 hours before they actually started their march.  By that time the rally in Parliament square had started at 2 pm. The Shropshire group only arrived at Trafalgar Square at 4 pm, missing all of the speeches in Parliament Square. Shropshire marchers completed the 2 1/2 mile route at 4:30 pm.

700,000 is equivalent to:
* Over 1% of the UK population
* The 2nd biggest protest EVER in the UK
* The biggest since the Iraq War protests
* Enough to be the UK’s 5th largest city
David Walker, Chair of North Shropshire Liberal Democrats, said:
“Every day it is becoming clearer that more and more people are demanding better than Brexit. People have been sold a pup. Regardless of whether a deal can be struck or not, or whether you voted Leave or remain, it is clear nobody will be getting what they were promised during the referendum. Nobody voted for this Brexit shambles, to be poorer or to put jobs and the economy at risk. It is time to give the people the final say on the deal with an option to remain.”
European Movement - Oswestry and North Shropshire branch supporters and Open Britain supporters joined in the march from Shropshire

If you want to Demand Better than Brexit, want a final say on the deal with an option to remain then join us, become a supporter or sign up with Open Britain or the European Movement. Both of which have many Lib Dems as supporters.
