Lesson one, Don. It isn’t just flu:

Lesson two: despite what you may have heard, coronavirus isn’t fake news:

Lesson three. Don’t be too quick to accuse rivals of crying wolf:

Lesson four: while you are in isolation at least contemplate the idea that criticism of your behaviour wasn’t a “far left” conspiracy theory:’

Finally, while you might get a kick out of being racist and telling your followers coronavirus is a “Chinese Virus”, believe us when we say this, the virus doesn’t respect borders:

Get well soon… honest

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?

    1. I’d save my wishes for those with common sense. You have to draw the line somewhere in our immense cosmos about wishes or your just living in a fantasy.
      Many will just watch what will happen with the subdued excitement of having a change. During The Presidnetial Election too. What timing this cosmos has.

    2. The guy is seriously ill, and I’m not referring to his corona convenience con. We’re talking about a stunted man-child who clearly fits the diagnostic criteria for psychopathy and narcissism. Either disorder renders him incapable of accepting defeat, and he’s got both. Won’t accept the result if he loses (fake news, obviously) and won’t vacate the White House either. Legal teams setting up post election maneuvers to circumvent the results of the vote count. Vandalized postal service, excessive mailbox removal during a pandemic etc. etc. etc. Not even remotely insane.
