The government has claimed for months that schools are not hubs of infection, but new data proves their lie: and shows that education workers have double the Covid rate of the wider population.
There have been many attempts to put a ‘humane’ face on capitalism, but it is a system built on oppression. Racism isn’t a glitch, it’s a feature – both of capitalism’s history and its present.
Decades of neoliberal policies have reshaped our world – but perhaps their deepest impact has been to corrode the bonds which underpinned society: replacing the collective with the individual.

Shami Chakrabarti on the dangers of the ‘Spy Cops’ and Overseas Operations Bills, the Tory culture war against human rights – and why the Labour Party is too scared to stand up to it.
