Now all that is needed is to activate the NGO’s and Embassies, mobilise the masses onto one of London’s many squares…and maybe, just maybe, Cameron will feel the sting of regime change. Wishful thinking, I know.
The popular anti-Cameron hashtag #CameronMustGo, calling for the UK PM to resign, has been trending now for ten days straight, and shows no signs of letting up. Of course, twitter users have lots of material to work with.
Via Huffington Post:
The hashtag calling for the Prime Minster’s removal has been used 830,854 times on Twitter since it first appeared.
That’s more than #VoteYes, one of the main hashtags for the pro-Scottish independence ‘Yes’ campaign, had in the crucial referendum month of September when campaigners were at their most vocal.
#VoteYes generated 720,800 mentions on Twitter, suggesting anti-Cameron feeling is stronger than the pro-independence feeling of a whole country, according to social media company We Are Social.
The most retweeted tweet was from Jon Swindon, the Labour supporter who created the hashtag.
He was outraged by the trail of two RBS bankers who were accused of £3 million property fraud but escaped jail time because the judge felt they had been “embarrassed” enough but he incident, something Swindon implied was reflective of Cameron’s attitude towards rich criminals.
