According to the Evening Standard, MPs are very keen for people to turn up and make their voices heard: representatives from the three major parties all stressed the importance of making the march a success.

It has caused further turmoil and growing anger within the ruling Conservative Party ranks, with most pro-Brexit ministers opposed to any such extension.
