BREXIT PROTEST WALK Arch-eurosceptic Farage leads march over Brexit betrayal

0

Nigel Farage, the politician who probably did more than anyone else to force Britain’s referendum on membership of the European Union, on Saturday joined protesters at the start of a 270-mile march over what they call a betrayal of the Brexit vote.

The march comes after another tumultuous week for Prime Minister Theresa May in which parliament overwhelmingly rejected her Withdrawal deal for a second time and lawmakers voted to seek a delay in Britain’s exit from the EU.

The march, which began with about 100 people, is due to end at parliament on March 29, the day the United Kingdom was supposed to leave the EU.

PM May has given MPs an ultimatum – ratify her deal by Wednesday or face a delay to Brexit way beyond June 30 that would open up the possibility that the entire departure from the EU could ultimately be thwarted.
