AIBU - to think that the protestor was very lucky not to be hurt when they jump in front of a convoy carrying the PM.

Good job it wasn't Cummings driving testing his fucking wanky eyes.

#karma says the tweet, but karma would be if the car hadn't stopped. A darwin award for the protestor.

Fucking muppet. I'm glad the guy on the bike seems ok.

It's interesting to see the reactions. The car sped off reasonably quickly.

I wonder what the gap is supposed to be between such vehicles in a convoy in case of terrorist attack?

The protester is a twat and deserves everything he gets

I expect his security detail need to be pretty close given their role goes beyond just witnessing a terrorist attack in their wing mirror.

Hahaha this was my first thought too.

Exactly, the car should not have swerved or braked.

FourTeaFallOut Wed 17-Jun-20 15:45:09

Sorry, my first post was vague. For the avoidance of doubt, I think the protester was a fucking muppet.

ShebaShimmyShake Wed 17-Jun-20 15:45:19

Looks like someone pulled the protestor out of the way?

I think it was the motorbike that braked and the car braked to stop hitting the motorbike.

Who cares? Nobody was hurt. People are stupid every day - makes no difference.

Lucky not to have been shot dead.

What the actual fuck is wrong with someone that they feel comfortable advocating intentionally running over protestors in a car?

FourTeaFallOut Wed 17-Jun-20 15:48:29

He wasn't just strolling across the road without looking both ways, he bloody threw himself in to traffic. It wasn't an act of stupidity, or at least not stupidity alone.

What fucking muppet jumps out in front of cars especially the pm’s convoy. His lucky his alive common sense however clearly lacking.

I am known for being reasonably anti-Johnson in my views - but he is still PM, we live in a world of terrorist threats and if someone decides to throw themselves in front of a convoy in such times, then they have to suffer the consequences of being a potential threat.

And yet Emily Davison is a hero ...

"Boris Johnson involved in car crash" is something that happens weekly, it just happens to be literal this time.

FourTeaFallOut Wed 17-Jun-20 15:55:01

At least she got under the right horse, he endangered some poor guy just doing his job.

He'd be nothing more than a speed bump for Johnson.

Funny old world, isn't it...

Boom! grin

JacobReesMogadishu Wed 17-Jun-20 15:57:42

What were the crowd chanting afterwards? Something like “mark his face”? Doesn’t make sense so guessing it isn’t that?

I feel sorry for the police having to work constantly with people shouting like that, I’d have an awful headache.

Sorry @SerendipityJane, I cross-posted with you.
