Jackson promised in a video tweet Monday: “I will teach you how to swear in 15 different languages” if at least 2,500 of his 8.5 million Twitter followers go online at his Headcount site to register to vote — or to check their registrations to make sure they’re good to go.

U.K. unemployment rate rose to 4.1% in July as lockdown impact hit home

Unemployment in the U.K. has risen in the three months to July, the latest official data published Tuesday showed.

The headline unemployment rate for May to July stood at 4.1%, up from the 3.9% figure seen in April to June period, covering the start of the U.K.'s lockdown that began in late March.

The data comes afterfigures released last month revealed that, from March to May, employment in the U.K. had seen its largest quarterly fall in over a decade.

However the data is unlikely to show the true extent of job losses caused by the coronavirus due to the U.K. government's "furlough" scheme, which has seen it subsidize the wages of workers in a bid to stop employers making job cuts.

Under the scheme, the government has paid up to 80% of workers' monthly wages up to £2,500 ($3,272), but the scheme is due to end October 31. Since August, businesses have to pay towards the wages of their furloughed staff too.

This is a developing story and will be updated shortly.
