after a man damaged his flat.

appear again while being surrounded.
I want to understand and arm myself."

Democracy's main entrance is closed
due to a serious police incident.
A woman has now been sacked.

Democracy stops functioning when
government acts to curb participants.
Boris Johnson reacted angrily.
