Read the original story here: ‘Brexit must be stopped’: The Arundel and South Downs constituents who marched for a people’s voteThe most popular comment on social media came from Kenneth Cross, who said: "No we had the People's Vote back in 2016. Whether we voted remain or leave, we must respect the original vote and just leave the EU."

In contrast, another of the more popular comments, Nick Field compared a People's Vote to buying a house: "It I decided to buy a house, put an offer in that was accepted — and then received a survey saying the house was not in as good condition as I thought it was, the I would want to be able to reconsider.

"We've learned a lot since the 2016 vote and there's a huge number of people who want to reconsider. If there's a People's Vote and the vote is still to leave, then fair enough. But at least a decision will be made based on reality rather than wishful thinking, huge exaggerations and outright lies (from both sides)."
