“Man complains of ‘Orwellian police’ after tweet investigation” , BBC

Considering that Harry Miller’s shirt says “man” followed by the word’s phonetic pronunciation, the BBC’s headline may be slightly clever.

A man has described police as using George Orwell’s novel 1984 as an “operating manual” after he was investigated over alleged transphobic comments posted on social media.

Quote from Miller: “We are heading absolutely towards some Orwellian state and the police are using 1984 as an operating manual and this frightens the life out of me.”
