British Government Goes Full Nationalist, Tells Workers To Sod Off

The Boris Johnson cabinet, in all their wisdom, has seen fit to order an expiration date of 25 December for emergency visa workers, lorry drivers, and poultry workers, in a baffling and asinine turn of events, following months of food and goods shortages due to BoJo’s misgovernance and the whole infectious plague ordeal that BoJo worsened due to policies like “eat out to help out” in which BoJo encouraged people to… eat… at restaurants… during… a mass pandemic.

Just sheer dingdongery of the highest order.

Yeah, it’s the other way round, it’s parody but of something that is entirely believable as something Priti Patel would say and based on her actual actions.
