This cartoon begins with the headline “It’s not just about what Boris said” and beneath that an illustration of Boris Johnson saying “Let the bodies pile high”. Next to that is the headline “It’s about what Boris actually did”. Beneath that are the following:
“Missed 5 cobra meetings” illustrated with an empty chair
“Late lockdowns” illustrated with a dial that reads “Cautious, sensible, tardy, reckless and WTF”. The needle on the dial is pointing to “WTF”.
“Failed track and trace scheme” illustrated with three bags of money.
Finally there is a box containing the words “That’s why we are here” and an arrow pointing to a tombstone with the following words on it “127,434 – currently the 5th highest death rate in the entire world”.
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.
