Don't know how they have the nerve to connect Johnson, their journalistic "independence", and a snivelling plea to fund their rag of a newspaper. I guess they don't see the irony.
Boris Johnson is somehow clinging to power despite a mutiny by his own MPs over the Partygate affair.
The entire debacle is a perfect example of why we need rigorous, independent journalism. Without media scrutiny from the Guardian and our peers, we wouldn’t know that Johnson had broken the law while in office. There would have been no police fines, no independent investigation. We would be none the wiser.
This is holding power to account, the most important task of journalists in an age of dishonesty and misinformation. Ever since Johnson became prime minister, Guardian journalists have worked tirelessly to reveal the shortcomings of his government: the Covid blunders, the insider contracts, the hypocrisy - of those who broke their own rules, partying or travelling when they shouldn’t have.
Our editorial independence means we are free to expose the failings of the powerful people who lead us in these troubled times.
