Tens of thousands turned out Saturday in London for the “March for Europe,” where they organized to protest the millions who turned out to vote for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.

Bob Geldof, probably best known for co-writing the charity song “Do They Know It’s Christmas” and organizing the Live Aid concert to fight famine in Ethiopia, was a featured speaker at the protest, and reminded the marchers that they live in a democracy.

Maybe he should had added that in a democracy, the side with more votes wins — just to clarify.
Bob Geldof at today's #marchforeurope: "The result can change, we live in a democracy."
Yes, Bob, and we chose, democratically, to leave.

You know you’re on the wrong side of history when Bob Geldof speaks at a protest you attended

16 million people (including myself) voted remain 17 million voted leave . 17 is bigger than 16 can we move on ? #marchforeurope

Sadly, democracy wasn’t the only concept that took a beating at the massive protest. Jarvis Cocker, not really known in the U.S. for anything but well known in the U.K. as lead singer of the band Pulp, gave the assembled masses a lesson in geography via a prerecorded message.

Thanks for that amazing insight, Jarvis ?#Whatever

So Jarvis Cocker thinks our geography proves we are part of the EU.

Where exactly was Jarvis Cocker pointing to indicate that Great Britain is at the centre of Europe? pic.twitter.com/rqghUh5ZbL

Take a long march off a short pier you fool.We haven't left Europe,We've left the corrupt dictatorship EU https://t.co/GehkV7cnVl

Jarvis Cocker is confused. The vote wasn't about leaving Europe. We like Europe. The vote was to leave a corrupt bureaucracy called the EU

If there was anyone likely to inspire a turnaround on the #Brexit decision, Bob Geldof and Jarvis Cocker it is not.
