The nation’s established political pundits are slapping themselves on the back today after once again getting an election exactly right.

Well done

For sheer self-satisfaction, it’s a close call between the two camps: the Tory commentators who correctly predicted that Theresa May’s gravitas and charm would carry her to levels of Maggie-like hero worship; and the cheerleaders for the ‘moderate centre’ who were so right to say that no one would ever vote for an old vegetarian like Jeremy Corbyn.

And thank goodness for such experts. Safe in their hands, none of us even had to stay awake for the results. Because it was all such a foregone conclusion. We were able to have a full and sound night’s sleep and wake up in the morning to reassuring business as usual.

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.
