Kingston MP to speak at Brexit march this weekend

MP Ed Davey and the Kingston and Surbiton Liberal Democrats are attending the “People’s Vote” on Brexit march on October 20 at 12pm.

Thousands of protestors are expected to descend on Parliament Square this weekend to demand a second referendum and hear from a range of speakers, including Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, celebrity chef Delia Smith and entrepreneur Deborah Meaden.

Davey’s office has confirmed that he will be speaking at the protest, to “represent his constituents”. Kingston residents voted overwhelmingly against Brexit, with 61% of voters choosing to remain in the EU in the June 2016 referendum.

The office added that the Kingston and Surbiton Liberal Democrats do not only want a second referendum, but are marching to stay in Europe.

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, said: “This Saturday, people from every corner of our country will travel to London to demand that that the British people get the final say on Brexit.”

“People didn’t vote to make themselves poorer, to damage our NHS or to put jobs at risk. As Mayor of London I am proud to welcome everyone joining the March for the Future and to add my calls for a public vote.”

There is a large contingent of Kingston and Surbiton Liberal Democrats travelling up to the protest and meeting at Park Lane beforehand.
