messageThursdays - boo for boris
Posted by tiddles May 24, 09:47PM

In light of today’s announcements and in view of the founder of the Thursday clap for nhs suggesting this now comes to a close - should we make Thursdays at eight a ‘boo for Boris’ ?

Since the 2m distancing has been such a rare sighting, I don't think there are many people in a position to do this?

Some people thrive on being booed - not sure if that's Boris - but some in the Tories definitely.

The very entertaining Class War has been doing this sort of thing for weeks

The rabid reactionary tribalists have resurfaced. What other futile knee jerk gestures will the think up?

Class war never really went away. I don't class them as reactionary tribalists. Do you know anything about them?

All so childish, in 4 years you can vote got more things in my life to worry about why people have Todo stupid stuff is beyond me
Agree or disagree with him he's here for 4 years
It's always trial by media these days the only truth in most papers are the date and price
Same when an MP has an affair media decide he's got to be sacked who cares
Most prime minister's would not stick by there judgment of the personas they more concerned about there position
We are not a banana republic

messageRe: Thursdays - boo for boris
Posted by Sephiroth May 27, 04:14PM

think the boo thing is a bit rubbish - however

"Agree or disagree with him he's here for 4 years"

is categorically not going to happen - in 4 years:

Boris will be long gone
UK on way to being gone
possibly election well before 4 years time as well

"We are not a banana republic"

Then "we" need to stop behaving like one. Action without consequences is what happens in banana republics. Scotland had no problem telling senior people they had to leave when they broke with policy

It may be a silly thing to do but we are in weird times, where for the first time we have a prime minister who lacks integrity, underpinned by someone who lacks humility (and numerous other traits we would expect), as we seem to slide towards an American way of politics where flawed/sociopath character seems to win you popular support.

Having to wait four years adds to the frustration.

Having a big riot in Trafalgar Square, returning to my reference to Class War, was similarly an immature thing to do, but it was one piece of direct action/mass disobedience that did have some impact, albeit pushing at an open door as many Tory MPs did not support the poll tax

I never understood class war so what if people earn big bucks no I don't I grow up in council house left school at 15 but worked my way through life never jealous of big earners waist of energy
As for what he did if I had a child and was in the position to do that I bloody would he put no 9ne in danger and seeing his boss so ill I would have been terrified of what could happen Yes poll tax was unfair but sacking someone for this
Can you imagine the people who did break the rules being sack a friend of mine drove from Kent to Newcastle just to see her son and girlfriend he's a mummy boy she and her husband are high risk fat diabetes and bad chest I told her she's crazy but didn't care
I understand strong feelings so each to there own, there will always be rich and poor most of us in the middle
And Boris father didn't make money until the 80s he got a scholarship for Oxford and lived with his nan in a run down place in Wales
But freedom of speech is good and each to there own

Yeah fair enough.
When we are ALL asked to limit our movements for a nationally important emergency, if you feel it doesn't apply to you just flick it off and do whatever you want.
Freedom of rights, right ?

True, at least we have freedom of speech not like China and some other countries
Seeing what China is doing in Hong Kong is terrible the world is concentrated on the virus so they know no one's going to stop them

Stephen Kinnock MP
Tahir Ali MP
Kevan Jones MP
Leo Varadkar Taoiseach.......sack the lot of them! Camp out on their doorsteps, spread the virus, who cares!

Ireland and Wales won't let you cross the border Uncle

So it's Birmingham or Durham for your camp out.

Leaving aside for a moment they are all answering to different accusations, the last time I checked, none of those people are in anyway involved in leading or writing policy for uk government during this crisis?

messageRe: Thursdays - boo for boris

The world will do nothing about China and it’s domination of Hong Kong.
Reason?
1.China is the worlds most powerful country and will do what it wants.
2.the other countries don’t really care.

Sometimes it's good to do "childish" things, especially in stressful times 🙂

I think the PM and his cabinet have behaved appallingly, but the 'boo for boris' idea is not helpful in my opinion.
