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.
