Tony offers Tribune support
So farewell then Tribune, or maybe not. As the demise of this venerable leftie magazine is predicted, editor Chris McLaughlin says he has been inundated with calls from readers offering help. Chris is suggesting a way forward may be to turn Tribune, which has been around and writing about politics of the left since 1937, into a co-operative. Good to see Tony Benn is already offering words of support. Others may follow, but Tribune will need more than words if it is to keep going. Those who bemoan that there is a need for more media on the left better get their wallets out.
