And so UKIP is still a thing – despite the insistence of those who said that if the Eurosceptic party helped to achieve Brexit, it would destroy them.
Unfortunately, the victory of the Brexit campaign – like all victories – has only served to make the victor stronger. You could argue that it doesn’t make sense for the ‘UK Independence Party’ to continue post-independence, but then the Conservatives operate despite not conserving anything and New Labour managed to govern even after gleefully abandoning the Labour movement.
The only positive is that the people who are vying to replace Nigel Farage have all the appeal, brains, and pleasant odour of a dehydrated herd of partially-chainsawed zombies.
But which one of these dead-eyed living-deads would you like to see replace mein Nigel?
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?
