A video has been released by protest group Youth Demand showing a young man entering the Prime Minister’s property and defecating in a lake. The group said the action was a “parting gift” for the Prime Minister and the Conservative Government.

Youth Demand describes itself as a campaign calling for an arms embargo on Israel, as well as for the Government to revoke all new oil and gas licences granted since 2021.
