22 June, 2022 – COVID-19 brought to light the widespread racial inequity in the UK’s public health sector, compounded by the poverty crisis, social housing issues, and the air pollution crisis. The past two years stressed the importance of access, trust, and care in public health services for racially minoritised communities in Britain that have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.

Johnson’s attacks on ‘lefty lawyers’ are childish and sinister

David Renton explains how the government has attempted to justify its Rwanda policy in the press and through attacks on lawyers.

The main justification of the Rwanda scheme is that it is so unpleasant that it will scare refugees and dissuade others from following them, so that the number of people coming to Britain will fall. But the focus here is not on the ridiculousness of the scheme as such, but rather the way the government has attempted to justify it in the press through attacks on left-wing lawyers.
