Petition text

Don’t block journalists from properly scrutinizing government

Why is this important?

We need a press that can properly hold our government to account. But right now, Boris Johnson is trying to pick and choose which journalists can get access to crucial information and control what is reported. That leaves voters like us in the dark.

It’s a strategy taken straight out of Trump’s playbook, and we can’t let it become the new normal.
