Surely it’s right to give the people the final say

"If you voted in. If you voted out. If you didn't vote, surely it's right to give the people the final say with The People's Vote. That's Democracy" Cllr Phil Knowles (former European Candidate for the East Midlands.)

Five hundred thousand, six hundred or even seven hundred thousand.

Whatever the figure the turnout at the people's Match at the weekend was undoubtedly huge. Add to this the enormous amount of social media on the subject and there can be no doubt that the call for the People's Vote is getting louder, louder on an almost daily basis.

The important thing is to keep up the momentum. However far the campaign has progressed thus far, no matter how loud the voices are, the truth is - there is still more to do.

We need now to ensure that the call for the People's Vote is on every letters page in local newspapers across the East Midlands, on every radio phone in, included in every Focus.

The postbags and email inboxes of our East Midlands MP's need to be near to bursting point urging them to throw their weight behind the call for The People's Vote.

Thank you for all your hard work and campaigning thus far and please, let's give this one more huge push to get this over the line. We need the People's Vote for the sake of generations to come and for the here and now.

Cllr Phil Knowles.
