Lon­don: Thou­sands of demon­stra­tors have marched through cen­tral Lon­don in a loud and colour­ful protest against last week’s vote to leave the Euro­pean Union, a re­sult that has plunged Bri­tain into po­lit­i­cal chaos and which most peo­ple in the cap­i­tal re­jected. Most pro­tes­tors were young adults, and many were draped in EU flags while oth­ers waved ban­ners bear­ing slo­gans like “I’m with EU” or sim­ply “Wrexit”. They chanted “What do we want to do? Stay in the EU,” as they marched to­wards the West­min­ster po­lit­i­cal dis­trict to a sound­track of songs like Rick Ast­ley’s 1987 hit Never Gonna

Give You Up and Whit­ney Hous­ton’s I Will al­ways Love You. Lon­don voted 60 per cent in favour of re­main­ing in the EU in last Thurs­day’s ref­er­en­dum, with younger vot­ers widely in favour of stay­ing in the bloc. How­ever 52 per cent of Bri­tons over­all cast bal­lots in favour of leav­ing. Reuters
