Dominic Cummings, dressed as a genie, sits on a carpet behind Boris Johnson, who is standing at a podium dressed as Aladdin. On the podium is a yellow and green sign that reads “Forget Barnard Castle, blame each other”. Johnson is saying “We’re doing an excellent job!”.

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
