Farage leads march on London against Brexit 'betrayal'
Issued on: Modified:
Arch eurosceptic Nigel Farage led a hundred anxious Brexit backers Saturday through the mud of England's industrial northeast towards London, demanding certainty that Britain leaves the EU this month. The 270-mile (435-kilometre) march from Sunderland to the capital's parliament will conclude on March 29 -- the date Britain was scheduled to pull out of the European Union after nearly half a century. But lawmakers' refusal to back the divorce deal Prime Minister Theresa May struck with Brussels has put Britain's divorce from the EU in some doubt. May will try this week to push her pact through the divided House of Commons for a third time.
