Final Say march: Do you feel more optimistic or less optimistic about our future since Boris Johnson announced his deal?

There was no signature on the letter Boris Johnson sent to Brussels on Saturday night, but there will be more than 150,000 on the one that will shortly land on his doormat and in the offices of every MP in the country.

The Independent’s letter, which follows Saturday’s million-strong march for a Final Say, is calling for politicians, both in the UK and in the EU, to give the people a voice on the terms of the Brexit deal, in the form of a second referendum.

Three and a half years have solved nothing, but they have shown beyond doubt that the UK’s political systems cannot process a decision of this magnitude and contention.
