Boris Johnson is depicted standing on a podium with the words “operation moonshot” on it. He’s holding a document with the words “100 billion on untested tech” on the front. His trousers are down and his bare bum is exposed to a group of photographers. Johnson is depicted saying “Austerity was a lie we always have cash when we need it”. To the side of the podium, Dominic Cummings is depicted wheeling a wheelbarrow full of cash through a doorway marked with a sign that reads “secret tendering process”.

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.
