Devizes Labour was demonstrating on the streets of Devizes on Saturday 31st. Part of a nationwide protest to stop the “very British coup” - as John McDonnell calls it - as Boris Johnson attempts to close Parliament down, determined to crash the UK out of the EU on 31st October.
My sense from the people we chatted to on our way from the Market Place to deliver a letter to Clare Perry MP, was that they are very angry - and very worried - about this assault on our democracy. A rainbow of cross party support turned out for the protest which was organised by Devizes 4 EU.
Ultimately though, this goes beyond leave or remain, beyond deal or no deal: we have to challenge Government to uphold democracy, radically rethink how we do politics and bring in a Labour government to get started as quickly as possible on rebuilding Britain to put people and planet before profit.
