Simon BishopMembers and supporters from across Folkestone and Hythe joined the People's Vote rally in London on Saturday 19th October, joining people from across the Country in calling for the final Brexit deal to be put to the people. They were joined by newly announced Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate for Folkestone and Hythe Simon Bishop.

After the votes in Parliament on the same day, Lib Dem Leader Jo Swinson said:

"Hundreds of thousands of people are marching outside Parliament, where I've just finished voting, to demand a final say.

"After today's votes, Boris Johnson must obey the law and send a letter asking for Article 50 to be extended.

"We will use that extra time to secure a People's Vote, to keep Britain in the European Union and to reject this awful deal.

"Boris Johnson's deal will damage our economy, undermine the NHS and public services, remove vital workers' rights and reduces environmental standards.

"When this deal comes back to Parliament, what needs to happen next is clear.

"We need a People's Vote, with the option to remain in the EU."
