‘Stop Boris’ banner flown over Old Trafford during Man United game

Daniel Brown

The message read ‘Boot him out’

A plane displaying an anti-Boris Johnson slogan flew over Old Trafford during Manchester United’s Premier League clash against West Ham.

The Prime Minister has been heavily criticised in recent weeks following multiple controversies around Downing Street parties in the midst of a national lockdown.

It also appears that the plane flew over Elland Road prior to Leeds United’s game against Newcastle at Elland Road, as reported by Leeds Live.

The message read, ‘Boot him out’ and included the web address to the website ‘’

The website – as the name suggests – is anti-Boris Johnson and asks for signatures and donations, as well as allowing users to write to their local MP about Johnson.

A messaged on the homepage reads: “Boris Johnson must be removed from office immediately. He has shown himself to be a serial liar whose actions are bringing this country to its knees.

“Sign the petition to demand this man is removed from power.”

At the time of writing, 77,175 people have signed the website’s petition – which continues to grow by the minute.

While it is unclear why the plane flew over Old Trafford and Elland Road, it is evident that the organisers are keen to call out Johnson for recent controversies.

It comes after Bury South MP Christian Wakeford defected to Labour just minutes ahead of this week’s PMQs and Tory veteran David Davis implored Johnson “in the name of God, go”.
