A enormous thank you to our viewers and supporters!
Expensive visitors and supporters,
It’s been a further hectic calendar year at Left Foot Ahead, with a good deal to report on presented that we ended up with our 3rd Tory prime minister in a calendar year, falling living specifications, increasing inequality and poverty and the governing administration lurching from 1 scandal to one more, with thousands and thousands gripped in a charge of residing crisis which the Tories refuse to tackle.
With the right-wing push ramping up assaults on unions, employees and parroting Tory attack traces, as the governing administration seeks to absolve itself of any obligation for the hardships going through thousands and thousands of difficult-pressed people up and down the country, and with the govt continuing to thrust out falsehoods to defend its appalling report, it’s under no circumstances been much more important to have an proof-based substitute to the right-wing press.
LFF carries on to glow a mild on the ideal, not only in our day by day reporting but as section of our Suitable-Wing Enjoy email written by Gabrielle Pickard-Whitehead and prides by itself on currently being a room for open discussion among progressives. Our crew continues to expose regressive procedures, cronyism and hypocrisy and highlights information and strategies that get buried in the broader media, though striving to be as various as attainable.
This year, we have released hundreds of tales, including exclusives, news and investigation, as perfectly as op eds from activists, public figures and civil modern society.
We have had a document-breaking year both equally in phrases of our readership figures and fundraising efforts, and we keep on to act as a wide church for progressives, recruiting new columnists and commentators. I’m exceptionally honoured to be editor of LFF at these an enjoyable time and to be doing the job with this sort of a good workforce of colleagues as perfectly as with our board.
Yet none of this would’ve been probable with out the support of you, our readers and supporters. Without you, it would not have been feasible to maintain electricity to account and to glow a light-weight on all those problems and results in so often neglected in other sections of the push.
We’re looking forward to an even even larger and much better LFF in 2023, exactly where we’ll be joined by our trade union reporter as we search to extend even further!
So a significant thank you from our entire crew!
Make sure you do keep on sending us your stories, suggestion offs, opinions and thoughts.
We’ll now be shut until 3rd January 2023 just after which we will continue on to use our journalism to fight for a far more equivalent, greener and socially just culture.
