Johnson's schools social-distancing lie

In a big PR exercise designed to reassure us that it was safe for schools to reopen, Boris Johnson visited Castle Rock High School in Coalville, Leicestershire. The county's schools began their autumn term before most of the rest of the country.

There was a handful of pupils in shot, safely social-distancing. However, when Johnson was leaving, the camera operative panned to the other side of the classroom. Pupils were crammed in, sitting close to each other.

Such deliberate deceit and recklessness. We cannot trust Johnson and the Tories to fight this virus. We need unions that will defend health and safety.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
