CanaryPod 28 October 2017 – a crisis of accountability
This week, Kerry-Anne talks to Steve, Bex and Tracy about a number of stories that highlight the Tory’s increasingly loosening grip on accountability – both legal and moral.
To find out more about the stories discussed this week:
Confirmed: the Conservatives did act ‘unlawfully’ in the 2017 election. But they’re being let off the hook
An open letter from a striking train guard smashes rail companies’ propaganda to bits [LETTER]
Someone has leaked a letter from a Conservative MP about welfare reforms. It stinks. [IMAGES]
The Tory government quietly adds a ‘chilling’ detail to its Brexit bill that reveals its true agenda

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.
