Nigel Farage Launches The Pro Brexit March To Leave From Sunderland

Hard-core Brexiteers led by former U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage are setting out on a two-week "Leave Means Leave" march between northern England and London, accusing politicians of "betraying the will of the people".

"The will of the people is very clear", Farage told them. The crowd cheered as Mr Farage declared: "We saw that massive Leave vote in Sunderland and we knew then we could win the referendum".

"They think they can walk all over us, well we are going to march back to them and tell them whatever tricks they play, if they extend it, if they don't deliver it, if we even have to fight this again, we will beat them again".

This stunning political demonstration is being coordinated by activist Harry Todd, who, according to Sky News, has guaranteed that he would be walking every mile of the route, whilst also admitting that he hadn't actually done any training for it.

The event has been arranged by the Leave Means Leave campaign, and will proceed towards Hartlepool on Saturday, a trip of around 20 miles, before proceeding on to Middlesbrough on Sunday.

"To counter this, Leave Means Leave are undertaking a peaceful protest to demonstrate the depth and breadth of popular discontent with the way Brexit has been handled". As Farage arrived he was met by a large group of reporters and TV crews.

That's all for today! "I am really very happy for him and for the hat-trick, and I am really very happy with him". And accordingly the victor of the third quarter-final will play the victor of the second in the semi-finals.

A row soon broke out with counter-protesters who turned up carrying red love hearts with messages including "we love workers' rights" and "we love to have a say".

As Mr Farage arrived, a flare was set off with the European Union colours, with shouts of "exit Brexit" emanating form the counter-protesters.

The protest will head to Hartlepool before moving on over the next two weeks where it will culminate in a mass protest in Parliament Square on March 29, which campaigners say will be "Brexit victory or betrayal day".

Honda, which builds just over 10 percent of Britain's 1.5 million cars, announced earlier this year that it would close its factory, in the biggest blow to the sector in many years, but said the decision was not due to Brexit. "They've got their no-deal taken off the table by four votes", he said.

Lockey pointed out that this margin was much smaller than the 4% margin of victory during the European Union referendum, which he said is now being discredited.

He added: "I'm sorry, but that really riles me".
