    Shouty person with megaphone: "What do we want?"
    Shouty crowd with banners: "Blah blah whatever..."
    Shouty person with megaphone: "When do we want it?"
    Shouty crowd with banners: "Now!"

    Can they think of nothing new to shout? Even a rendition of Joan Baez's 'We Shall Overcome' would be a refreshing change.

    League match at Cambridge last season - **** referee who couldn't keep up with play.

    " Ref - you need lighter glasses" (I've missed out a few swear words)

    This season - **** referee - wearing a lurid green shirt.

    Robin Hood wasn't as f****g blind as you ref"

    "We Shall Overcome" isn't attributable to Joan Baez though. It was popularised by Pete Seeger but it's a lot older than that and the lyrics came out of copyright earlier this year.

    Someone tweeted it was less like a protest like a Waitrose queue.

    For once Andrew Neill makes a good point:

    A massive peaceful protest march took place in London today. I’ve seen no reports of violence, yobbery or arrests. This is what a mature democracy is supposed to look like.

    This didn't set out to be a joke thread but some of the above are brilliant.

    What do we want?

    We are a collection of individuals, and as such our desires are not all aligned toward the same goals.
    When do we want it?
    The chances are some of us will achieve our goals within an acceptable time frame.
