The editor of the Daily Express, which started the petition campaign to get Britain out of the EU, the DE Crusader, Labour MP Kate Hoey and Tory MPs Philip Davies, Douglas Carswell, Philip Hollobone and Peter Bone carried hundreds of thousands of petitions from Express readers through the streets of London to 10 Downing Street yesterday.
They're still awaiting the Prime Minister's response. Services are being cut savagely due to the economic crisis, but Britain continues to send 20 million pounds to Brussels every day. It's frankly amazing that only 373,000 have noticed that this money comes out of their paychecks and every tenner they lose to VAT.
In a blasé response: "A Downing Street spokeswoman said: 'We will respond in the usual way.'
Presumably that would be the usual we-don't-care.
