Problems in the UK ‘someone else’s fault’, claims UK government

The Tories have been in charge of the UK for seven long years now. And in that time, one thing has remained constant. That no matter what’s going wrong with the country, you can tell the people one of two things:

  1. Actually, things are going pretty well. And we’ve even got statistics to prove that. Just ignore the homeless people you had to step over to get in the building – conditions are actually on the up!
  2. It was somebody else’s fault.

It wasn’t us!

The Tories are masterminds at this.

Wondering how they’ve managed to create more debt than every Labour government combined?

Well, that was because Tony Blair spent too much on stationery in 1997. And although we’re so good at the economy, he was so bad at it that a situation has been created that even we can’t turn around.

Wondering why the NHS is on its knees?

Well, that’s because people keep getting sick, isn’t it? Imagine if you were trying to run a car mechanic’s and people kept bringing broken cars in? Or you ran a bakery and people kept coming in for sausage rolls?

HOW WOULD YOU GET ANYTHING DONE!?

And you’re probably wondering why you’ve got less money now than you had 10 years ago?

Well, the economy is growing, so obviously you can’t fucking count. And if you think it’s because the country’s money is pooling in London – being sucked down like a flushing toilet – then maybe you should get on your bike and get a job as the CEO of HSBC or something you lazy, fucking pleb!

YOU NEED TO GET IT IN YOUR THICK HEADS!

WE ARE THE STRONG AND STABLE GOVERNMENT!

AND ANYONE WHO QUESTIONS THAT (OR READS THE UNTOLD FACTS TO THE CONTRARY) IS AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!

VOTE CONSERVATIVE!

VOTE MAY!

OR ELSE!

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?
