    March to give the People a Vote - 23 March

    On 23rd March the Liberal Democrats will be marching on the streets of London demanding a People's Vote.

    It's what Liberal Democrats have been calling for since day one.

    Theresa May has wasted over two years, stubbornly sticking to her red lines and refusing to seek a consensus across the parties. At the eleventh hour and with days to go until we could crash out of the EU without a Deal she has brought the Parliament to its knees and left the divided Country facing the biggest crisis for several generations.
