Fck Govt, Fck Boris

Here’s what people had to say about our new Prime Minister at yesterday’s anti-Boris Johnson march.

Yes­ter­day, Boris John­son became prime min­is­ter of the UK. Today, the coun­try has had its hottest July day on record, with tem­per­a­tures reach­ing 38.1C in Cam­bridge.

Which all begs the ques­tion: have we lit­er­al­ly entered hell?

Of course, the heat­wave didn’t stop yesterday’s anti-Boris John­son demon­stra­tion organ­ised by @fckgovtfckboris.

The organ­is­ers wrote:

Boris will be sworn in as PM on 24th July. We will be ready to greet him. We will be ready to reject him. And we will be ready to reject every sin­gle one of his cronies and every­thing they stand for.

At the time he gives his first speech as PM, we will hold a street fes­ti­val cel­e­brat­ing the pow­er of our com­mu­ni­ties. There will be music and art. There will be noise.”

And noise there was. The protest, which began at 5.30pm in Rus­sell Square, saw pro­tes­tors march through Lon­don towards Down­ing Street chant­i­ng Fuck Boris”, hand­ing out zines, and throw­ing out free anti-BJ T-shirts. 

Here’s what they had to say.
