In this week’s episode, Nancy Mendoza (@NancyWMendoza), The Canary’s Director of Communications and Membership, talks to Canary writers Steve Topple (@MrTopple) and Sophia Akram (@MsSophiaAkram), as well as Weekend Editor Emily Apple (@emilyapple).
The Conservative minority government has promised £1.5bn to Northern Ireland in return for an agreement that the DUP will support it in parliament – Steve Topple unpacks the detail and implications of this. Sophia Akram takes us through the planned sell-off of a crucial part of the NHS. Finally, we look at the first Prime Minister’s Questions since the election, which has some pretty grim revelations.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
