Free from Fear or Favour – and Universally Free at the Point of Use


The cost of living crisis mustn’t become a crisis of democracy. We believe that access to independent news and fearless investigative journalism should be a public right, especially when people cannot afford to subscribe to our print edition.

Our daily news site is unique: it has not only published over 4,000 stories by over 400 writers exposing scandals such as the Government’s questionable PPE procurement, its intention to sell your GP data, ‘pork barrel’ funding for Tory constituencies, Russian disinformation and crony Coronavirus bungs to media moguls – it is also the only news site we know of which doesn’t have a paywall, doesn’t monetise its users’ data through analytics or cookies, and doesn’t carry advertising.

Help us keep the news free from fear, favour, paywalls, data collection and ads. 

If you can donate £2,000, we will record your contribution permanently on the home page of our site as a Platinum Champion of free access news. If you can donate £1000 we will record your name permanently as a Gold Champion. If you can donate £500, as a Silver Champion and if you can donate £250, you will be recorded as a Bronze Champion.

Thank you.
