When the Daily Mail approached a father to use footage of his children on the Mail Online website, it probably wasn’t expecting his forthright response.

Shut down

With much of the country getting shut down by snowmageddon, lots of families are enjoying playtime in the flurries. Composer Nick Harvey and his two children were among them.

But soon after Harvey shared the footage online, the Daily Mail came calling. And it was their turn to get shut down.

Daily Mail asks for footage and gets shut down.


Harvey’s response soon went viral, with fellow Twitter users branding him a hero for putting the Mail in its place.

Not all heroes wear capes.

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.
