    An yet rishi sunak has the nerve to tell people to 'just retrain' on that pathetic propaganda poster. As if the choices of those in the art wasn't acceptable in the first place?!

    Dancing is filthy, evil, and disgusting. It was not invented by God, and should not be permitted UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. It spreads cvd and God knows what other vile immoral habits and diseases. Ban it now. Make it illegal.
