At 8pm tomorrow 26 May my family will take part in this protest.

Not that I think the consequences should end there....but I need to register my disgust somehow at the contempt Boris Johnson and the Government have shown for all of us.

I can't express how appalled I am by this, I know what my family has gone through and I have seen the hardships others have faced; and still kept to the rules for the sake of the public good. The Government's actions have shown how little respect and regard they have for us.

I do hope that others who feel similar outrage join in with this protest.

Nah. Fuck that. It will have absolutely no effect on anything, plus it's childish. If you want to protest like an adult, write to your MP.

What will it achieve though ? He still won't give a shit and he still won't apologise . If you feel the neeed to do it then do it but nothing will change

That's worse than clapping for NHS. Boos won't change anything.

You could register your disgust more constructively by emailing your MP. I'm not at all impressed by BJ defending the actions of DC but I'm an adult and booing anyone (unless it's panto) just seems a childish way to make a serious point.

Why would you make your self look silly? And what do you think it would acheive?

EatDessertFirst Mon 25-May-20 13:05:16

How ridiculous. Noone will give a shit. Grow up.

Pipandmum Mon 25-May-20 13:06:44

No one I know has heard of this.

Dumbie Mon 25-May-20 13:07:03

Why oh why are these things at 8pm? What's wrong with 6? Before the kids go to bed.

I'm outraged, but YABVU. What an embarrassment. Write to your MP!

ArriettyJones Mon 25-May-20 13:08:05

Christ on a bike. Grow up.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Mon 25-May-20 13:08:51

That sounds so embarrassing. Will adults really be doing this?

Almost borderlines becoming witch-hunts when we come to things like this
Also while o don't think it's right people can only do this who hand on heart have not broken a single rule there selves
Writing an email to no fair enough booing on our doorstep , nah I'm not a vigilante

Comingoutontop123 Mon 25-May-20 13:09:55

Cringe.

It never was a real lockdown, most people haven't followed the guidelines but made up their own entirely anyway.

Livingtothefull Mon 25-May-20 13:10:23

I have already emailed my MP. Taking one action does not rule out every other. I agree that on its own it will not change anything, but don't think there is anything intrinsically childish about a public expression of disapproval.

Fill your boots. But I certainty won’t be standing outside booing and clapping like a twat.

Honestly people need to get a grip. You’d think he’d been murdering small puppies the way folks are going on.

strugglingwithdeciding Mon 25-May-20 13:11:33

@livinglifetofull it is childish and personally a step to far

Flowersinthewild Mon 25-May-20 13:11:49

Pathetic!

Bluntness100 Mon 25-May-20 13:12:09

Seriously? You think there is nothing wrong with standing booing on your doorstep?

Because there really is.

Laaalaaaa Mon 25-May-20 13:12:10

No thanks - I’m not going to be standing booing on my doorstep like an absolute tit.

PrincessHoneysuckle Mon 25-May-20 13:12:18

Pointless so no

zyxa Mon 25-May-20 13:12:38

Bloody hell when will it end?!

Please don't embarrass yourself and your family by doing this, you will be the only ones!

WorraLiberty Mon 25-May-20 13:13:01

I'd love to live opposite you OP grin grin grin

I'd assume your lone booing was some sort of weird meditation noise.
