So… this is the government’s latest UK advert. It’s already been withdrawn this afternoon because it’s so shit even by UK government standards.

“in cyber”

hahahahaha, what advertising twerp thought that that was even a thing?

But here’s the problem. I’m already seeing a huge amount of people (most of whom are not artists or performers) posting this with comments like “No, Fatima, just be you! Just keep doing what you are doing! You go girl! Don’t give up on your dreams!” etc. ad infinitum.


That’s all very well if Fatima’s got rich parents who bought her way into…
