BRACKNELL politician Dr Phillip Lee joined anti-Brexit campaigners in London on Saturday for a mass rally.

The MP attended the People's Vote March and picketed alongside thousands of other people who opposed the decision to leave the European Union (EU).

Dr Lee famously stepped down from his role as Justice Minister to oppose Theresa May after the referendum.

Now, he is calling on the Prime Minister to suspend Article 50 and pursue an agreement that will prevent negative outcomes for the country going forward.

He said: “When people voted in the last referendum, many voted with their heart.

"They were not given all the facts and wrongly told that a deal could be put together in just six months.

"Brexiteers claimed it would be easy to separate from the EU, but 28 months later we still have no sign of an agreement."

Final figures from Saturday's rally are yet to be confirmed, but organisers claim at least 670,000 attended, making it the biggest anti-Brexit demonstration since the 2016 referendum.

The demonstration set off from Park Lane and finished in Parliament Square where celebrities and politicians gave speeches.

Dr Lee added: "As a doctor, if a course of action, or treatment, continually fails to make your patient better, you question if you are giving the right medicine. This is where we are.

“The right medicine is to suspend Article 50 to allow adequate time to work out an agreement that can be delivered and then to put this to the electorate; what I have called informed consent.

"The wrong approach is the path we are currently on, lurching from crisis to crisis with no direction and no sign of a deal. This approach will only make our country poorer and no one voted for that.”

The People's Vote campaign seeks to ensure that the Government's Brexit deal is put before the country in a public vote.

Other famous faces at the march included TV presenter Richard Bacon and Dragon's Den star Deborah Meaden.
