Hundreds of thousands protest in London demanding second Brexit vote

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May speaks during a debate on her Brexit ‘plan B’ in Parliament in London

"If it appears that there is not sufficient support to bring the deal back next week, or the House rejects it again, we can ask for another extension before 12 April, but that will involve holding European Parliament elections", she said.

An estimated 1 million people flooded the streets of central London on Saturday in favour of a final say on Brexit.

The original deadline for Britain to leave the European Union was March 29, but Prime Minister Theresa May secured a little more time from EU leaders to find a deal that both parties agree on.

"The best outcome now would be a long delay, and it's not the worst thing in the world to ask people to vote for some MEPs, and certainly better than stockpiling medicine and turning Kent into a vehicle park", he told Today.

If MPs approve the negotiated exit deal at the third attempt this week, the date will be pushed back to May 22 to allow for the necessary legislation to pass.

Some prominent political figures including Tom Watson, the deputy leader of the opposition Labor Party, the First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon, and Mayor of London Sadiq Khan all delivered speeches at the rally, with many calling for the issue to be "put to the people".

While the turnout today reflects public concern and anger over Brexit, it seems unlikely a Prime Minister cornered by her Brexit policy and under enormous political pressure within her own party to deliver on Brexit will respond to their concerns. You're plunging this country into chaos.

Sturgeon said the EU's decision to delay Brexit had created more time to prevent disaster. Article 50 is the exit clause in the European Union treaty. The government has the right to retract unilaterally its notice to leave the European Union under the terms of the Lisbon Treaty, effectively cancelling Brexit.

Mr Bryant added: "It's not Parliament that can decide whether we stop Brexit or not, the only people who can do that is the British public".

The petition was posted Wednesday, and as of Saturday, 4.7 million people had signed their names, pushing it well above the 100,000 signatures required to open a debate in Parliament. Many of the "People's Vote" protesters echoed that sentiment.

The London march began at Hyde Park Corner before passing Trafalgar Square and Whitehall and ending in Parliament Square, where the area filled up before some marchers had even set off.

Georgiadou told the BBC that since the petition has gained so much support and attention, she has received three death threats and her Facebook account was hacked.

Conservative Party legislator George Freeman tweeted that a new leader is needed.

Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable told talkRADIO: "It's the last big chance for the people to get out on the streets and argue for a People's Vote while we still have a good chance of getting there, resolving this awful problem in that way".
