Well in national news people in the UK upset at the death of Eastenders character Phil Mitchell (The spanner got Spannerd by Stacey), Now I don't watch this shit and haven't watched live TV for years but pretty much everyone in the UK knows who Phil Mitchell is.
Personally I think the people of the UK have bigger things to worry and be upset about like the state of our government, Brexit and just the general state of the UK at the moment. If you upset about the plot of a TV Drama and feel the need to bitch and moan on Social media you must have a pretty boring life.
Social media is a powerful tool in the right hands and could be used more to highlight and fix social issues around the world but no people choose to use it to bitch and moan about a Fucking TV charterers death.
There is so much going on in the UK and the world, if we all took note we could try to fix things, protesting in one country alone won't fix climate change, yes human's have don alot of damage to our planet and are probably speeding up the process but climate change is also a natural occurrence that's been happening since the dawn of time. Perhaps instead of shutting down a city and hypocritically leaving litter strewn all over the place after the protest you could use social media to highlight the issue and educate people with the correct facts and lead by goddamn example, blocking the M32 in Bristol didn't do much either, a part from causing a man to miss out on precious last moments with is dying father. What did these protests really achieve in the end? I'd love to know.
If you really feel the need to protest about climate change and environmental issues you should protest at the next G20 summit where all the world leaders can take note, The UK is not the biggest contributor to plastic waste or C02 emissions and our country has much bigger issues to deal with.
