With the local elections coming up and the Tories folding in on themselves like a popped bouncy castle, the papers have had to act. The latest revelation is that everyone who has ever:

  2. Complained about, or
  3. Been deported by the Tories is a RUSSIAN BOT!

Digital commies

The editor of The Times explained to BBC Breakfast:

We realised something was amiss when these people said things which were less than patriotic.

Things like ‘why has every library been replaced by 500 potholes?’

Things like ‘how can people have known what they were voting for when your definition of Brexit changes every week?’

Things like ‘why are you gentrifying us out of a home instead of giving us non-flammable cladding like you promised?’

And things like ‘why have you assessed my mum as being fit for work when she’s been in a coma for the past 7 months? What sort of work is she fit for? “Human draught excluder” isn’t a real job.’

The BBC Breakfast host nodded throughout this.

“These people are disgusting,” he agreed, “so it’s unsurprising to find out they’re also communist cybermen. We should both stand up and spit at them now.”

The pair proceeded to gob at an image of protesters behind them.

U, robot

You’re probably wondering if you yourself are a Russian bot. Thankfully, there’s an easy way to tell: if you can feel the pinch of living under a Tory government, I’m afraid to say you’re a robot.

But we’re all robots here, comrade.

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?
