Re the coronavirus:
This is a political failure on a truly horrific scale.
It’s time for the press to do its job and hold the government to account.
The press are the people who write what fills in the bits between the advertising. Not – despite what always happens with a government to the right of the Socialist Workers Party – the people holding government to account. That’s the job of the Opposition. And – again, contrary to appearances – the press and the opposition to the government are not the same thing.
