Protesters surround Boris Johnson’s apartment

June 25, 2019

Protesters who demand from the Britain prime minister-in-waiting have surrounded Carrie Symond’s London apartment after police were dispatched to the address last Saturday.

The protests outside the flat in south London come after Symonds, Boris Johnson’s girlfriend, reportedly said she was too scared to go home.

The demonstrators are holding placards that read “F**k Boris. F**k the government.”

Their website said: “There is a class war waging and we are losing it. The rich are getting richer and the gilded elite who have ruled us since Norman times remain in power and dominate land ownership, just as they did when they first robbed it.

“We live in a feudal society dominated by an oligarchy of privately and Oxbridge educated toffs who run not just everything from the government, banks, to diplomacy but the media, music, comedy and Her Majesty’s loyal Opposition.”

Protester leader Ian Bone once even hassled the children of Tory Member of Parliament Jacob Rees-Mogg. Police were called to the London flat just after midnight on Friday after a neighbor became concerned by a heated argument.

The neighbour said he heard a woman shout “get off me” and “get out” at the home Johnson shares with Symonds.

Tom Penn, one of those who alerted the police, said: “I felt it was of important public interest. I believe it is reasonable for someone who is likely to become our next Prime Minister to be held accountable for all of their words, actions and behaviours.

“I, along with a lot of my neighbours all across London, voted to remain within the EU (European Union). That is the extent of my involvement in politics.”

Johnson, who is expected to trounce Jeremy Hunt for the final voting for prime minister, refused to answer any questions. AP
