Courts will remain open and parliament will remain open.The idea would be that while we all go into tier 4 for a period of a few weeks.

People really laugh about it and react to it,” says Odoakang, 23, of the portrait commissioned by a company in Lagos, which he says brings Trump’s “personality into our setting”. Continue reading…
