A large thank you to our readers and supporters!
Pricey viewers and supporters,
It’s been one more hectic calendar year at Remaining Foot Forward, with a lot to report on offered that we ended up with our third Tory key minister in a year, falling living specifications, growing inequality and poverty and the federal government lurching from one scandal to yet another, with hundreds of thousands gripped in a value of dwelling crisis which the Tories refuse to deal with.
With the proper-wing press ramping up attacks on unions, staff and parroting Tory attack strains, as the government seeks to absolve itself of any obligation for the hardships struggling with thousands and thousands of challenging-pressed family members up and down the country, and with the federal government continuing to push out falsehoods to defend its appalling file, it is never ever been a lot more essential to have an evidence-centered substitute to the appropriate-wing push.
LFF proceeds to glow a gentle on the ideal, not only in our day by day reporting but as portion of our Suitable-Wing Look at electronic mail created by Gabrielle Pickard-Whitehead and prides alone on currently being a space for open up discussion between progressives. Our team continues to expose regressive guidelines, cronyism and hypocrisy and highlights news and ideas that get buried in the broader media, even though striving to be as varied as achievable.
This yr, we’ve printed hundreds of stories, like exclusives, news and investigation, as perfectly as op eds from activists, public figures and civil modern society.
We have experienced a history-breaking year each in phrases of our readership figures and fundraising endeavours, and we keep on to act as a broad church for progressives, recruiting new columnists and commentators. I’m very honoured to be editor of LFF at this sort of an fascinating time and to be operating with these kinds of a brilliant team of colleagues as perfectly as with our board.
Yet none of this would’ve been doable without having the guidance of you, our visitors and supporters. Without having you, it would not have been achievable to keep energy to account and to glow a mild on those people challenges and results in so frequently neglected in other sections of the press.
We’re wanting ahead to an even larger and greater LFF in 2023, where by we’ll be joined by our trade union reporter as we seem to develop even even more!
So a substantial thank you from our total group!
