Thousands Of Darts Fans Chant 'Stand Up If You Hate Boris' At PDC World Championship

Darts fans aimed a chant at UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson during PDC World Darts Championship matches on Monday evening.

Johnson has been under intense scrutiny throughout the coronavirus pandemic and the Conservative government have been accused of mismanaging Christmas restrictions.

A two-hour cabinet meeting earlier on Monday brought no further news and frustrations boiled over at 'Ally Pally'.

Thousands of fans rose to their feet and chanted "Stand up if you hate Boris" during James Wade vs Maik Kuivenhoven.


Christopher Hope shared the video captioned: "As if things could not get worse for our Prime Minister, here’s the crowd chanting “Stand up if you hate Boris” at the 2022 Darts World Championship at Alexandra Palace in London tonight."

Piers Morgan has also had his say, tweeting: "‘Stand up if you hate Boris!’


Wow. Darts fans making their feelings very clear about the ‘Man of the People’ Prime Minister…"

Johnson and the government have been accused of hosting a series of gatherings during lockdown last year.

One which took place in May 2020 saw officials gathered in the garden of 10 Downing Street eating cheese and drinking wine.

That saw one fan bring a tongue-in-cheek sign to the darts which you can view below.


The PDC World Darts Championship draws around 80,000 fans per year and is one of the biggest sporting events in the country.

Health experts had warned the competition shouldn't have been held due to rising Omicron variant cases.

Back on the Oche, it's been a thrilling tournament so far with two nine-darters on back-to-back days.


William Borland was first in Friday's win over Bradley Brooks and many believed it wouldn't be topped.

He then went one step further by unloading his very own nine-darter on Mike De Decker.

Labanauskas didn't do enough to seal victory however and bowed out at the first round stage.


It's only the third time in history there've been two nine-darters in World Championship history and it's also the first since 2014.
