Stan, aka Malcolm Laverty, is a retired local authority schools adviser, having previously led or taught in a range of schools. He is the editorial cartoonist for Schools Week and several of his cartoons appear in The Cartoon Museum’s e-publication #DrawTheCoronavirus. He tweets as @SDupp. This began as a response to the rushed academies legislation by Michael Gove in 2010. Lords Nash and Agnew have publicly complained about him when he gave one the wrong shade of ginger hair and portrayed the other as Ebenezer Scrooge.

Yorkshire Bylines is a citizen-led journalism publication. We are part of a country-wide network, run almost entirely by volunteers – over 650 at last count with just one paid coordinator, a part-time audience development officer and a part-time editorial assistant. In Yorkshire we have 200+ writers, 10 subeditors and six people helping with our social media. Can you help us to grow and become more sustainable with a regular donation, no matter how small?

Can you help us reach more readers?
