Students at Manchester Metropolitan University were threatened with police action if they didn’t remove signs complaining about draconian lockdown restrictions that were placed in windows at their halls of residence.Students across the city have been placed under a new 2 week lockdown, meaning they are under de facto house arrest, cannot leave their homes and are forced to rely on food deliveries.
Some reacted to the restrictions by placing signs in their windows that said, “”Help us!” and “HMP MMU,” a reference to Her Majesty’s Prison.
“Mental health comes first – let us out,” another sign said.
In response to the signs, the university said it had been contacted by police, who would remove the signs if they were deemed to be in violation of the law….
Remember, it’s for our own good. Isn’t that what domestic abusers always say?
