A barrier outside the Conservative Party Conference has been making the rounds on social media today ahead of the Conservative Party Conference.
Delegates convened yesterday for the first day of the annual meeting in Birmingham with several big issues on the agenda.
But despite international issues such as Brexit dominating most of the headlines it was opportunities at home that grabbed most attention on social media.
A tweet by Channel 4 correspondent Ciaran Jenkins went viral after the reporter spotted that a barrier had been erected outside the door to opportunity.
The fence, which was emblazoned with Conservative Party branding, presented an open goal opportunity for sketch writers to poke fun at the party’s reputation for offering opportunities to the few rather than the many.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
