OurKingdom on Twitter

Follow OK on the social networking site.

I've rather belatedly set up an OurKingdom Twitter account. Until now OK regulars Anthony, Tom Ash, Tom Griffin and myself have been using our own private accounts to promote OK material, but now there is a dedicated account you can follow @OurKingdomUK.

Unlike certain ministers, we will be confining ourselves to tweeting political comment and analysis and not dispensing advice on how to improve your sexual performance (though this may be an unintended side-effect of reading OK).

ps - To stay truly connected, join the openDemocracy mothership's Facebook group, on which OK features, and it'll pump out the latest material into your News Feed.

Who's getting rich from COVID-19?

Boris Johnson's government stands accused of 'COVID cronyism', after handing out staggering sums of money to controversial private firms to fight COVID-19. Often the terms of these deals are kept secret, with no value-for-money checks or penalties for repeated failures which cost lives. And many major contracts have gone directly to key Tory donors and allies – without competition.

As COVID rates across the country surge, how can we hold our leaders accountable? Meet the lawyers, journalists and politicians leading the charge in our free live discussion on Thursday 1 October at 5pm UK time.

Hear from:

Peter Geoghegan Investigations editor, openDemocracy, and author of 'Democracy for Sale: Dark Money and Dirty Politics'

Jolyon Maugham Barrister and founder of the Good Law Project.
