"People's vote!" as they marched, while others shouted "Hey hey Theresa May - immigrants are here to stay" and "Exit Brexit".

'Nobody was talking about a bad Brexit deal, nobody was talking about no deal whatsoever.

Everything they have done in the negotiations so far - Britain's Remain-sympathising, pro-EU chief negotiator Olly Robbins palling up with his European Union opposites; the sidelining of former Brexit minister David Davis; May's springing on her Cabinet the devious Chequers Plan drawn up in secrecy by her Remainer civil servants - has been contrived to ensure that Britain ends up with Brexit In Name Only.

As every day goes by, the harsh reality of a hard Brexit becomes clearer and support for a People's Vote continues to grow.

One of the organisers of the Dorset For Europe Facebook group, Muriel Turner said: "We have six months to go until we actually leave the European Union and I think it's starting to hit home with the whole of the country now that's it's serious stuff, politicians are not taking it seriously at all".
