Nikkita : "This piece explores key issues from the past decade of the incompetent and failure of a Tory (Conservative) government in the UK. I have referenced key issues such as housing, education, migrants, climate change, Brexit and Covid.
In the centre of the image, Boris Johnson (UK Prime Minister) is stitched coming out of a 'jack in the box' holding explosives and caged humans. This represents the government’s risky and dangerous behaviour regarding Covid and the inhuman, unworkable and extremely confusing restrictions.
I have also highlighted Boris giving his daily-weekly speech conference in front of lights depicting the 'stay alert' (confusing) slogan with bars behind him to reference the public being locked up in their homes with barely any support, especially those from poorer backgrounds."
