This cartoon begins with the text “Crime and lack of punishment” the words “lack of” are smaller and coloured red, the rest of the text is black. Under that is text reading “A story of government accountability”. The rest of the cartoon is divided into two columns, the one on the left is titled “Crime”, the one on the right is titled “Punishment” and has quotation marks around it. The crime and punishment columns then read in order as follows.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.

    1. Ultimately if there is a serious crisis it goes to the state to decide how to address the issues raised. I worked for the DWP for about a year, minimum stuff, budgets, education programmes, policies and processes, meetings with ministers, etc. There is no reasonable reason why the couldn’t deal with this and these are the policies they chose to implement. Parliament has existed for a long time now, during world war two factories were still used, so what’s the excuse?
