Oh, here’s The Guardian talking about the government’s mass text:
As I imagined, it’s not like there’s a massive database with everyone’s numbers. They just asked the operators to send it to all their customers.
I just got a text from the government about the new regime. I assume everyone did. I didn’t know they could do that. It just has this link.
In considering how rich families try to control who their progeny marry, I found it interesting to see if this mapped on to <cite>Pride and Prejudice</cite> at all. Only if if you stretch things quite a lot. “Darcy” and “Elizabeth” are already together at the start, after all.
It’s a fun enough romp if you don’t mind the fantastical displays of fabulous wealth. Interesting too, to see Michelle Yeoh as a controlling mother rather than a kickass starship captain.
