The Bedside Guardian 2018
What to make of a year of such highs and lows as 2018? On the one hand, we had the toe-curling farce of Trump’s visit to the UK, the revelation of the Windrush scandal, and the ongoing debacle of Brexit. On the other, there were the unexpected triumphs of the Irish abortion referendum, the miraculous Thai cave rescue, and the glorious sunny weeks in which the England football team got within a whisker of reaching the World Cup final.
This was also the year that – despite the background of continuous political doom and gloom – certain popular trends seemed to offer a chink of hope. The #MeToo movement has focused attention on women’s voices as never before. Veganism is on the rise. Plastic has become a dirty word.
In such confusing times, it is more important than ever that we have balanced, trustworthy reporting to make sense of our fast-changing world. The Bedside Guardian brings together the best writing from the year, reflecting the range of voices that make up the Guardian: incisive, witty, provocative and hard-hitting. In an era when news organisations are under attack, this collection showcases the importance and power of intelligent journalism.
