Thousands demonstrate across the UK to #StopTheCoup

It won’t make a blind bit of difference, of course.

Like the petitions that have popped up online demanding that the decision to prorogue Parliament be reversed, mass demonstrations by the people of the United Kingdom won’t affect Boris Johnson at all.

He doesn’t care what you want. He doesn’t do anything for you. He’s doing it all for himself.

He is, in a nutshell, a Conservative Party MP.

But it does stand as a historical record – that one of Boris Johnson’s first acts as prime minister was to reject democracy, and the people stood up against him in protest.

Here’s a selection of images of the demonstration(s), from Twitter:

There is hope, though – even if these demonstrations aren’t going to change Mr Johnson’s mind.

Parliament still has time to stop him, according to arch-Remainer Lord Adonis:

So take heart! And make sure your MP knows what they have to do.

    What do you mean it wont make a difference – a spontaneous outpouring of people on to the streets of westminster and across the country is an amazing response to an attack on democracy … its huge sign of resistance and should never be underestimated. How else do we defend our country from fascism…

      You are aware that Dictator Johnson won’t care until people come out on the streets with weapons, keen to drag him out of 10 Downing Street and end his prime ministerial tenure the hard way, aren’t you?

      And then he’ll just put the army on the streets and have them shoot everybody.

    No General Strike yet, I fear. Too many No-deal Brextremists in every workplace. Too many unorganised work places . Too many demoralised, cynical workers. But, there’s time yet….
