No Way There Were 1 Million On The Peoples’ March – 300,000 Maybe

So another Remain number and assertion bites the dust. All of which does rather beg the question of whether they’re right on the Big One – that Britain should stay in the European Union. Their claim that there were one million on that Peoples’ March over the weekend is now proven to be hot air:

Impartial fact checkers Full Fact carefully examined their claim that one million people attended their march on Saturday, finding that “experts in crowd estimation put the number at between 312,000 and 400,000.” Again, barely a third of the dodgy numbers the People’s Vote were putting out

Surprisingly, The Guardian Gets It Right About The Brexit Peoples’ Vote

What does amuse is that it’s The Guardian that actually publishes a piece telling us the truth here. We’ve already had that vote and Leave won:
