The Jubilee is a reflection of all that’s wrong in Britain

Not everyone is in celebratory mood this weekend. Curtis Daly explains why he is opposed to the monarchy.

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.

    1. Well said Curtis.
      This must be the time to campaign against the unequal society.
      UK society is corrupt and unequal.
      The Monarch sits at the top of this unequal state.
      She is its figurehead and symbol.
      A head of state who is only there because of who her father was.
      Ridiculous !
      But – Look at the Labour Party.
      It leader – Kier Starmer KCB – Knight Commander of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath.
      Equally ridiculous !
      The rich and powerful must be laughing their hats off.

    2. It shows what utter control the establishment exerts offer education and the media. That a large portion of the UKs population are completely taken in by the cult of monarchy. How ordinary people will show unwavering loyalty and deference to a privileged family whose wealth was built on the misery and subjugation of their ancestors.

    3. The monarchy, with its extensive extended family, resides in splendour and rancour at the pinnacle of a monstrous pyramid of archaic privilege comprised of an assortment of dukes, duchesses, princes, princesses, lords, ladies and god knows how many recipients of bestowed ‘honours’. As Curtis says, this is grotesque and has no place in a society professing to be democratic, with everyone equal under just law. No country which allows/delights in the existence of such a weird construction can claim to be a true democracy. It’s time we grew up and let go the hand of nanny.
