WE WILL probably fall short at the end of the month. Nevertheless, today’s £389 is still a mighty fine amount to come in.
Led by standing orders of £135, a long-time supporter in Warrington followed up with £55 and the Merthyr Tydfil Communist Party was close behind with £30.
Another extremely generous regular in Belper also added £30. I say thanks to the reader who sent in a cheque for £50 and to one in Bristol for £20. Stevenage got in on the act with £20 as well as our Winchmore Hill fan, who sends in £20 every month. Our loyal Hull benefactor added £10 and there were several small donations online.
History has been made this week with the declaration by the Supreme Court that this government is a bunch of low-life criminals who have blocked access to justice through exorbitant fees for those suffering injustice at work or because of their gender, sexuality, racial orientation or disability.
Things must be bad if these ermine-clad class warriors are speaking out. I look forward to the announcement that the Tory government is to be locked up and the keys thrown away — provided they can find enough enough prison staff to undertake this task.
It’s a funny old world isn’t it? Only a massive infusion of funds for the Morning Star will help make sense of it all. See what you can do.
You can’t buy a revolution, but you can help the only daily paper in Britain that’s fighting for one by donating to the FIGHTING FUND. The Morning Star is unique, as a lone socialist voice in a sea of neoliberal media. We offer a platform for those who would otherwise never be listened to, coverage of stories that would otherwise be buried. The rich don’t like us, and they don’t advertise with us, so we rely on you, our readers and friends. With a regular donation to our monthly Fighting Fund, we can continue to thumb our noses at the fat cats and tell truth to power. Donate today and make a regular contribution...
