Student drug dealers spared jail by judge impressed by their flawless grammar. Please note this story has developed since Topple Uncaged was recorded:
Deeply misleading headline on this @thetimes rewrite of my court story: ”Good grammar” most certainly did not keep them out of jail – given their ages, lack of previous, and relatively small scale of the dealing they were never likely to be locked up. https://t.co/12QPKPSngJ

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?
