There is growing excitement that Britain could be on the cusp of embracing full communism. If we vote to leave the EU, there is going to be so much money sloshing around and our glorious leaders will have complete freedom to hand it out in the best ways possible. This is likely to be good news for such bastions of the Traditional British Way of Life as state farms, top quality ballet and free gymnastics for the under-fives.
Furthermore, casting off the ridiculous ‘free movement’ dogma of the EU will enable the UK state to carefully scrutinise the credentials of each and every person wishing to cross the border, just like North Korea.
It’s hard to believe anyone in their right mind will ever want to leave Britain again, however, as the post-Brexit High Command will be using the bottomless ‘Brexit windfall’ money pit to turn the country into a new utopian Albion.
All fuel will be free, especially for the elderly. There’ll be a new school in every village, suburb and housing estate. Potholes will finally be repaired. Everybody currently receiving funding from the EU – farmers, scientists, endangered newts – will carry on getting it, except it will be proper British money and not bureaucratic Eurocash.
Finally, the money left over will be used to spend £350m a week on the NHS. Yes, you heard correctly. The likes of Priti Patel, Dominic Raab and Arron Banks are so committed to Nye Bevan’s vision of a properly funded free system of healthcare that before long we’ll have more doctors than Cuba. It’ll be amazing.
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?
