I think you've strayed across an alt-fact there Svarty - unless the govt have imposed a news blackout of course.

Maybe news travels slowly in Svartryland. Johnson suspended parliament between 10 September and 24 September 2019.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

How the tories see modern society:

No 10 pulls 'sexist' Covid ad showing all chores done by women
Lone man on withdrawn social media image lounges on sofa, while females clean, iron and home-school

The government has been lambasted for apparent sexism after issuing a social media advertisement showing women, but no men, undertaking domestic chores – including home-schooling.

On Thursday, the government attempted to distance itself from the official social media ad which urged people to “Stay Home. Save Lives”.

The poster (above) depicted women cleaning and ironing as well as home-schooling. The lone man, meanwhile, was depicted lounging on a sofa.

The image was withdrawn, but only after it had gone viral and drawn criticism and dismay from critics.

The government said the ad did “not reflect” its “view on women”. Conservative MP Caroline Nokes, chair of parliament’s women and equalities select committee, tweeted the image and commented: “Someone signed this off.”

That the image was published was indicative of a government with a blind spot on gender equality, said Mandu Reid, leader of the Women’s Equality party.

“This kind of typecasting makes my blood boil – the people who produced this are dinosaurs,” she said.
