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 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.
