Hi, I'm Rachel from Guildford. You might have seen me in Parliament Square. Just wanted to thank people for their support over the last couple of days. I protected my account as things got a bit overwhelming. Anyway, if you're interested, here's the whole clip.

Lets be ultra realistic. 19 Labour MPs backed Johnson and will again, vetoing a referendum. Britain is leaving the EU - all that is left is detail- and an interminable damaging Brexiternity stretches ahead and a 2nd rate trade deal.I hope I am wrong; but this a sad tragic night.

Today’s press - Mail, Express, Telegraph, Sun - shameless, shouty, europhobic supporters of Johnson’s deal and trashers of principled opposition remind me of their support for the Iraq war. On big issues there is a cardinal principle. The right wing media is always wrong.

We marched yesterday for a Peoples Vote, but had to settle for second best - Letwin’s amendment. Yet these wonderful million strong marches are powerful, good-humoured and immensely important. History is on our side. One day we will vote again - and win

There are occasions when it is fundamental to listen to a parliamentarian in full forensic flow. Hear Keir Starmer out. It is devastating. Johnson’s deal is a mendacious, self damaging cul-de-sac.

If Tony Blair hadn’t ignored similar scale marches against Iraq how different our national life would have been! Jon Snow is right - but Blair’s words carry little weight. The same lies in store for today’s politicians ignoring today’s million strong march.

Today’s march is our most important yet. Johnson’s sell-out ultra hard Brexit deal has swung parliamentary momentum behind leaving with no 2nd referendum, even if Letwin’s deferment passes. All we have is our numbers and passion that what is happening to us is betrayal. March!

When Johnson loses the vote tomorrow the option must not be the Letwin amendment- purposeless extension. It must be a referendum on his deal or Remain - why we are marching. I thought finally Corbyn had swung behind this position. But as always disabused. McDonnell for leader.

Johnson’s deal is worse for workers’ rights & environmental protections than May’s botched deal Its proposal for “one country, two systems” for Northern Ireland is politically unsustainable And it will make the whole country poorer It deserves to fail.

Wonderful! Corbyn has finally shifted to backing a referendum with any deal - says Shadow Brexit minister Jenny Chapman. It became impossible to hold an indefensible position. We are reaching the endgame. I count 310 plus votes for a referendum. Johnson’s max vote so far is 302

A Northern Ireland only backstop with a customs/single market border in the North Sea is one Mrs.May said no British PM could accept. First step to reunification of Ireland. Opens door to Scottish independence. Johnson and Europhobes break up our country and cripple our economy.

This impending deal is a disaster. Johnson to accept a Northern Ireland only back-stop in order to impose the hardest of hard Brexits on UK mainland. A slump in manufacturing and crisis in internationally traded services will follow. Environmental and workplace standards go hang.

Johnson’s deal will be a back stop for Northern Ireland only, unravelling Good Friday agreement -so US trade deal impossible. But a hard Brexit for the rest of UK, devastating the car,aerospace, chemical, pharma and drink and food industries-as warned. Europhobia’s gift to us all

I think we need to find a similar language - rational, explicatory but nonetheless passionate and uncompromising - as Bertrand Russell to describe how we feel about the economic self damage and offence to our core values posed by right wing Brexit europhobia. An amazing letter..
