David Stokes was quoted in a Bournemouth Echo article covering Bournemouth’s protest against suspension of parliament by Boris Johnson.
He told the Daily Echo: “I am really impressed. It is a good turnout and I think we have to take our hats off to the organisers, who put this together at very short notice.
The important thing about today is to emphasise this is about defending democracy. It is not about whether you are in favour of leaving the European Union or in favour of remaining in the European Union. It is all about what is happening with democracy because we live in a parliamentary democracy and if parliament is not sitting, they can’t be discussing the important matters”.
