A Million People Can't Be Ignored, Mr Corbyn

Could Mr Corbyn take note of the million plus people who marched on the Peoples Vote March 23 March 2019 for a second referendum on EU membership?

Keir Hardie

Keir Hardie (1856 – 1915) was a Scottish trade unionist and one of the founders of the Labour Party. He served as its first parliamentary leader from 1906 to 1908.

What Would Keir Hardie Say? was published in 2015 by Luath Press in Edinburgh.

It is a look at Hardie's message, with chapters from eleven contributors.

The subtitle of the book is:

Exploring Hardie's vision and relevance to 21st century politics.

Chapter 3 of the book is the contribution by the current leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn.

He begins as follows:

CHAPTER 3 International Peace: A Legacy for the Peace Movement Jeremy Corbyn

ON I5 FEBRUARY 2003, well over a million people marched through London to oppose the intended invasion of Iraq. It was the biggest ever demonstration in British history. Six hundred other demonstrations took place all around the world, on every continent, including Antarctica.

They all knew why they were marching and by sheer force of numbers turned media and popular opinion around from the Government’s intended story that somehow Iraq presented a threat to us all and that only by bombing could we secure the peace of the region, and indeed the world.

Could Mr Corbyn take note of the million plus people who marched on the Peoples Vote March 23 March 2019 for a second referendum on EU membership?

Could he do so with the same serious regard that he gave to people who marched in 2003 on an anti-war platform?

A million people can't be ignored, Mr Corbyn.
