Orwell Prize Winner Compares Brexit to Grenfell

Congratulations to Carole Cadwalladr, who this week won the Orwell Prize for the best political writing of the year. Carole celebrated by tweeting a thread which concluded with her comparing Brexit to Grenfell. She even attached a photo of the fire. Imagine the judges’ faces when they see that…

That said, the Orwell journalism prize judges were Brexit-hating columnist Rachel Johnson, the Economist’s David Bell, and the former political editor of Channel 4 News Elinor Goodman. Andrew Adonis is judging the Orwell book prize this year. Former winners include Johann Hari

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
