There have been some weird and grotesque criticisms of Prince Harry marrying Meghan Markle. Not criticisms of the Royal Family existing in the first place (an opinion many decent people hold), but criticisms from royalists who object on other grounds. Chief among them was this from The Spectator:

And these from the readers of The Daily Mail:

Meghan Markle might be more in line with right-wing thinking than these people realise, though. That or she’s entirely detached from reality. Although either quality will serve her well as a royal.

Brexit means exit

The EU referendum of 2016 was called by David Cameron. His promise to hold it was widely regarded as an attempt to keep elements of his party in line. And when it didn’t go his way, Cameron resigned and left the rest of us to deal with Brexit.

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?
