The Coronacession – plus Dark Money brought to light
Crisis? What, MORE crisis? How well is plucky Brexit Britain set up to cope up with the Coronacession? (Spoiler: badly). Investigative academic Seth Alexander Thévoz shows the breathtaking power of untraceable dark money in UK elections – and how it helped the Tories knock down the Red Wall. The EU shames itself in the Greece-Turkey refugee crisis. Toilet paper: Britain displays its Bumkirk Spirit. And the clucking awful truth about chlorine chicken.
“The economy was screwed already. Boris bounce? Absolute rubbish. The economy has been flatlining. And now here comes Coronavirus.” – ROS
“The question isn’t ‘Is there Russian money in British politics?’ It’s ‘Why should Britain be the only country where there ISN’T Russian money sloshing around?’” – SETH
