LONDON/BELFAST (Reuters) - Thousands of people across Britain and Northern Ireland protested on Saturday against Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend parliament for about a month before the deadline for the country to leave the European Union.

Johnson has pledged to take Britain out of the EU on Oct. 31 with or without a deal on future relations with the bloc. The move to shut parliament for around a month in the period before that will hinder efforts by his opponents to stop him.

About 2,000 people gathered outside his office in Downing Street, chanting: “Liar Johnson, shame on you!”

A sign read: “#StopTheCoup. Defend our Democracy. Save our future.”

1. A Day Late and A Pound Short

Boris and the Tories have all the cards and marbles.

If you really want to do something, vote them out.

3. If you voted for it,

 

or just didn't give a shiite to get out, you are about to get whacked by Karma.

To the rest of England, sometimes a little revolt is healthy for a Democracy.

We have our own problem to deal with.
