Wealth first, Londoners second. That has been the Conservative Mayor of London’s policy throughout his tenure in which London house prices have become folly for wealthy overseas investors, pushing house prices to an average of half a million pounds and out of reach of the people that live and work in the capital. A quick look back over the past six years highlights why waving a brick in Birmingham is too little too late. Ney, it shows how out of touch the mayor is with the crisis he has helped create. If anyone has been living on the Planet Zog, it’s Boris Johnson.

Free, independent journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful 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, independent media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
