Teflon government

Image description

This cartoon begins with the words “Teflon gov” and a Union Jack flag. It depicts a large Teflon frying pan, with a handle that ends with the head of Boris Johnson. Hanging off the end of the frying pan is what appears to be Dominic Cummings. There is a red spot in the middle of the frying pan and around it the words “focus on vaccine programme”. Next to it is a yellow flash and the words “old and unimproved”. Next to that is a purple bubble and the words “Triple-layered mass media protection”. Above the frying pan is text that reads “Islamophobia findings removed in seconds”. Below it are the words “get rid of stubborn select committee evidence in just days!”.

We need your help to keep speaking the truth

Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.

Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.

We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.

In return, you get:

* Advert free reading experience
* Quarterly group video call with the Editor-in-Chief
* Behind the scenes monthly e-newsletter
* 20% discount in our shop

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.

With your help we can continue:

* Holding political and state power to account
* Advocating for the people the system marginalises
* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
* Putting your lives central to everything we do

We are a drop of truth in an ocean of deceit. But we can’t do this without your support. So please, can you help us continue the fight?

    1. Love how pissed off you are that you can’t land any hits on the government despite everything. Starmer at PMQ’s yesterday gave a great example of how to miss a barn door from 20 ft. The left are so pitiful at the moment that they don’t deserve a sniff of power.

      1. Love how exposing your incredibly low iQ flies straight over your head…..
        As for missing a barn door dear, I suspect you wouldn’t be able to find the barn……
        And seeing as you use adjectives to divide ideology I’d have to assume you’re a greedy bird brained boomer……yawn.

    2. Johnson and Hand-to-cock had their initial allegations: home decorating and 20% ownership of a non declared family company quashed by yet another Conservative Whitewashing Exercise. The Opposition does not exist. We the electorate are subjected to the whims of criminals, liars and thieves, that inhabit the House of Commons and House of Lords…the inadequacy of our elected ministers and MP’s to organise a piss-up in a brewery is a total embarrassment, let alone run the country. I live in hope of winning enough money on the lottery to leave Plague Island.
