In spite of my enforced inactivity for the last 2 or 3 months, 2013 was quite a year for the SKWAWKBOX, with some 450,000 reads. I’m truly grateful to you all for visiting and/or helping to spread the word, and I hope it’s done some small amount of good in the fight against the disinformation we’re fed every day by the government and its media allies.
The most read article was the original post about the fake DWP test inflicted under threat of sanction on thousands of unemployed people, as this was picked up by the Guardian, Huff Post and others, but I think the most important was the seminal article on the fictitious mortality rates at Stafford Hospital, as this led to a series of posts and revelations that highlighted the government’s central media tactic for attacking our absolutely-sane love and respect for the UK’s greatest institution, the NHS. The attack continues and it’s as essential as ever to draw attention to it.
Thanks once again to all my readers and supporters who helped put the SKWAWKBOX on the media map in 2013. I’ll resume normal service as early as possible in 2014 and am already on the trail of a couple of stories that could be explosive if the details pan out.
May you have a healthy, happy and prosperous (in every sense that matters) 2014 – and may we all work successfully toward a 2015 that is free from May onward of our malignant excuse for a government.
Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 450,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 19 days for that many people to see it.
