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.

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…

Boris Johnson has broken the whopping promise he made to Brits a year ago today

The 2019 Queen’s Speech, which laid out the government’s intentions, took place on 14 October that year. In the speech, the Queen relayed Boris Johnson’s plan to bring forward proposals to ban trophy hunting imports. It’s now a year to the date of that promise. The government has since carried out a consultation that offered some potential “options” for a ban. But it hasn’t provided any firm proposals on the ban yet, or indeed released the results of its consultation. In short, the UK is hardly any closer to banning trophy hunting imports than it was a year ago. “Get on with it” Johnson reiterated his government’s intention…

Johnson is gaslighting us, his energy pledge is just the latest example

On 6 October, Boris Johnson announced big plans to make the UK ‘the Saudi Arabia of wind energy’. In what was touted as a huge announcement, he told the nation: Offshore wind will be powering every home in the country… You heard me right! Your kettle. Your washing machine, your cooker, your heating, your plug-in electric vehicle – the whole lot of them – will get their juice cleanly and without guilt from the breezes that blow around these islands. With much fanfare and the requisite amount of air-punching, Johnson went on to promise £160m in funding for offshore wind projects. His speech was further peppered with inane…

In one sentence, Boris Johnson makes a mockery of his newfound green credentials

Boris Johnson has made big promises of late about going green. He laid out grand plans for increasing UK wind power on 6 October. That followed his highly publicised pledge last week, along with a number of other world leaders, to tackle the biodiversity crisis. In one sentence at Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) on 7 October, however, Johnson made a complete mockery of his newfound green credentials. Shoddy briefing Chesham and Amersham MP Cheryl Gillan posed a question at PMQs. Acknowledging Johnson’s wind power announcement, which is the first part of an expected 10-point plan from the government for a “green industrial revolution”, Gillan asked: Would my right…

Johnson blames the chaos of his 10pm curfew on ‘hobnobbers’

Boris Johnson has defended the controversial 10pm curfew. And he’s blamed people who choose to “hobnob” outside pubs after hours for the sometimes chaotic scenes in city centres at closing time.Scientists advising the government have already warned that the measure may be doing more harm than good. It’s caused long queues outside off-licences, as people rush to buy more alcohol, and revellers piling onto public transport with little or no social distancing.The prime minister also said that if the Eat Out To Help Out discount scheme had helped to spread coronavirus (Covid-19), then that needs to be counteracted with “discipline”. Passengers on a Northern Line train in London…

Britain’s status as rogue state confirmed, thanks to latest moves by the Johnson Gang to flout international laws

Outrageous government proposals regarding asylum-seekers, together with a bill to provide immunity to crimes committed by UK military and another that may wreck the Good Friday Agreement, could see the UK in violation of international laws. Moreover, that the UK is regarded as a ‘rogue state’ appears to be of no concern to the Johnson Gang. For it’s all about changing mindsets: what was once completely unacceptable is now the norm. Example 1: ‘Australian style’ offshore processing Leaked documents show that Downing Street sought ideas on how best the UK could deal with asylum-seekers trying to reach the UK. It’s understood that in response to Downing Street, home…

Johnson is royally put in his place at PMQs

Another week, and another Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) has left some of us feeling, well – underwhelmed. But much like the previous week’s edition, the spark came from somewhere other than the Tory and Labour benches. This week, it was down to speaker Lindsay Hoyle to put Boris Johnson in his place. PMQs: Hoyle starts as he means to go on It didn’t start well for Johnson. Lancs Live reported that Hoyle laid into the government over the controversial coronavirus (Covid-19) laws that MPs are fighting over.
