STAGGERING CLAIMS that a million people turned up for a People’s Vote march in London were demolished yesterday.
Experts claimed the actual number who attended on Saturday may have been as little as 312,000 to 400,000, according to factchecking website Full Fact.
They claimed People’s Vote’s figure that there were 4.5 people per square metre appeared wide of the mark.
Professor Keith Still of Manchester Metropolitan University said it could have been as low as 2 per square metre along the route.
Arch Tory Brexiteer David Jones said: “400,000 is a respectable number.
“But it is a pity that the organisers felt the need to inflate it so much.
“We should remember the silent majority of the 17.4million who want us to leave the EU, and whose votes must be respected.”
