Brexit

Political

On saturday there was the People’s Vote March to demand that the people get the final say on Brexit. These excited kids were at my local overground station. They were so full of hope that their facepaint and home made banners and t-shirts would make a difference.

On the train was this cute little toddler, he seemed to love his little banner.

The whole of London was packed with people with home made banners and EU flags. It took us two hours to get from Bond Street Tube to the start of the march on Park Lane and a further three hours to get to Trafalgar Square – I didn’t make it to Parliment because I had to leave by 5pm to get to a gig. Along the way there was so many colourful characters of all ages, but this lady’s banner ‘Old person against Brexit’ stayed in my head.

One thought on “Brexit

  1. I couldn’t get to the start but I saw the end and there were so many clever and banners, plus smiles and hope. Fingers crossed it all does some good and our country doesn’t fall apart. Love your drawing of the old person. My mum is an 87 year old remainer living in a village in Yorkshire (you can imagine how that works)…she would have loved to carry that banner 😍
