Boris Johnson gets a volley of darts

Apart from a few specialists, very few Europeans know that the World Darts Championships take place in London until January 3, 2022. This discipline, like snooker or cricket, is one of the “So British” sports.

Thousands of UK fans come together every year to watch PDC World Darts Championship matches. Despite the pandemic, more than 80,000 spectators are expected until the final. But for health reasons, they were almost deprived of their favorite show.

English health experts have already said loudly that the competition should not have taken place due to the increase in cases of the Omicron variant. But the game is not won, as all sporting events will be played behind closed doors in Wales and with reduced gauges in Scotland since 26 December.

Fans present at Alexandra Palace on Monday evening voiced their dissatisfaction with the policies pursued by the English government and its Prime Minister. They got up and started singing an anti Boris Johnson song that said, « Get up if you hate Boris ».

Super loud disguised fans

A great success in the assembly which is often made up of noisy revelers. Unlike snooker fans, they’re not the type to clap with a snap of their fingers. They prefer singing, shouting, writing slogans, dressing up and drinking beers.
