The Citizens 'The Crony Rich List'
19 May 2021
For the past year the Citizens – a group of investigative journalists, film makers, lawyers, artists and creatives assembled by the journalist who broke the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal, Carole Cadwalladr – have been tracking Covid contracts handed out to Tory party donors and friends.
And while our much clapped-for nurses face a 1% pay rise, billions of pounds of taxpayers’ money have been spent on contracts handed out to private companies, without competitive tender, under cover of emergency legislation.
This month to “celebrate” the Tory COVID windfall, the Citizens released the Crony Rich List, their own take on the Sunday Times Rich List - The Crony Rich List
In collaboration with The Citizens, Jealous has released a Citizens signed open edition print, not only to document one of the darkest chapters in recent UK political history but to also help raise money to fund investigative journalism, to seek out the truth and to hold the government to account.
