7:25 pm
an opportunity for these two leaders to get snow each other's the first time they met and also discuss some of the strategies which may be talked about at the summit on sunday and later in the week at the main summit there is no doubt they are on they same page or they believe new solutions must be found they also both pro e.u. young dynamic leaders who really want more e.u. integration and what that means for them is that there must be solutions found to the migration crisis because they see the divisions that it is causing and they worry that that could threaten the future of the european union the future of the bloc in fact a model mark or even said that we could see a wave of populism and nationalism unless something is done. thousands of protesters opposed to breakfasts half march through central london on the second anniversary of the u.k. to leave the european union and the mounting a second referendum on e.u. membership once the terms of the country's withdrawal become clear it comes

7:27 pm
a little bit earlier on i spoke to some key figures from the remain campaign the countries from the big three divide in the fight those divisions have healed and the reason for that i think is that since the referendum we lost the referendum will suffice but since the reason why is governed as if all of these people kind of don't exist so what this is about is basically saying that we have to at least hold open the option when she does come up with a deal with the people who are to say yeah that's what we voted for we want a people's vote deal or no deal and i think that's right it can't be right that six hundred fifty politicians sitting in palm and who are amongst themselves as indeed our government and cabinet is divided on this question i think sixty five million people in our country should have a vote on the final deal. so no great surprise perhaps about the size of this demonstration here in london but what is surprising is that two yeas after the
