Speaking to the Worcester News, Independent West Midlands MEP James Carver said: “The timing of Saturday’s anti-Brexit protest – on the same day as an under-reported pro-Brexit march - was odd to say the least, taking place in the wake of both Houses of Parliament rejecting the suggestion of a second referendum outright.
“Everyone’s entitled to their opinion, so I have no objection to them marching, but they are misguided if they think the 17 million Brits who voted to leave the EU did not know what they were doing.
“They should think very carefully about the position we’d be in if there was a U-turn. A Britain that had voted to leave and would be remaining in the EU on terms worse than those we rejected in June 2016.
“Most surveys show the British people still want the country to reclaim sovereignty, its money and control of its borders.
“The protesters’ placards and chanting will make not one iota of difference to the government, which is committed to carrying out the will of the majority.”
