PM Boris Johnson gave his first daily coronavirus update to the nation, yesterday, and it seems that most people were not too happy with it, leaving more questions than answers. Do we go to the pub? Are they shut? Are they open but we are not allowed in?
He told the nation to social distance, but kept schools open. It was a complete mess and even the most ardent Johnson fans must have been left shaking their heads. These are a sample of some of the many Tweets following his briefing.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
