Overthrowing the Government!

#1
So the USA did it with the American Revolutionary War, sick of the Brits ordering them about and taxing them etc.

Now we have Brexit and PM TM is proving herself to be a traitor and not delivering on what the people voted for - or at least trying to stop us from fully leaving the EU.

Now hypothetically if people got pissed off about this - which quite a lot are, how we they go about overthrowing the government without resulting to force?

The Army & Police forces are very small compared to the population and could easily be beaten if a civil war broke out - also they couldn't control much of the country - maybe a couple of cities and that's about it really.

If people just refused to go to work and blocked the motorways/ports/access to people working in the banks/City/Power Stations/Large companies the country would come to a standstill and the government would be crippled and basically need to resign. Anyway I've often thought about the best way the general public could 'fight back' in the event of something like this happening - what would you guys think would be a good way to overthrow the government (Without killing all the Police - and fucking up the Army)?

The referendum asked if we wanted to leave and that was the result. It is absolutely no surprise that it is a fuck up, the quality of the government has shown through for ages.

The first thing we would do is begin discussing the plans on a public internet forum so that those who would seek to thwart us would be fairly kept in the loop.

Will you be having this revolution with tea and Jaffa cakes?


When this kicks off please remember we Colonials are a few hours behind, so please save your shenanigans for the late evening hours.

We've got a lot more weapons than the rest of the population, and the skills required to use them.

If you want to do it properly as some of us do you don't f*cking gob off on a public forum.

Thankfully some serious (moneyed) people have foreseen this and that there'd be a good deal of the public on their side and have been amassing artillery the likes the BEF of '14 would envy.

Wait and see.

PMTMs deal takes us out of the EU in a legal sense.

What are you bedwetting about?
Genuinely, this isn't a WAH or wind-up, the current draft is not doing that (see the Spectator). We are actually in the EU (in EU law) until December 2020 but not invited/ejected from the ECJ, Parliament and Commission. They can tell us how much they want for capital projects, EIB etc.

I don’t think you understand:

1. What a traitor is.
2. What the PM’s deal is.
3. What the public could be arsed to do.

There's fuckall wrong with massive protests to demonstrate the public's dissatisfaction with government policy but I'll save my powder for when the internment camps & trials without juries are brought in for disagreeing with them thanks.

We don't overthrow our Government, we merely vote at an election.

But the alternatives at present don't amount to very much, so be very wary of making a protest vote. The Lib Dems got seats last time...

Well, one of the crazy ways we could do this, is by voting during a GE....I know, that’s just a mad idea, and it’ll probably never catch on, but maybe just maybe, it could work.

And speaking of treachery, your post and therefore demeanour is the epitome of a traitor, and I’m more likely to drive my bayonet through your skull than I am to take up arms against our own armed services and police.

Um 1641 and 1688? How about 1976?

We would no longer be a MS.

The ref was about remaining as a member
