The SKWAWKBOX needs your help


Since I started this blog in 2012 I’ve never tried to commercialise it – any adverts you might see are put there by WordPress in return for providing the blog platform free of charge – and I’ve always resisted doing so.

It’s been a labour of love and of a passion to get the word out on things you won’t hear in the mainstream media and still is – but it takes a lot of time to research, prepare and write.

Now a combination of various changes of circumstance means I need to generate some regular funds and I’m hoping kind regular readers may be able to help.

I’m hoping to find a small – relative to the SKWAWKBOX’s readership – group of people who are willing and able to contribute a few pounds a month so I can continue to provide it free of charge to everyone who visits.

I know a lot of readers of this blog are facing their own tough circumstances, so I don’t ask lightly or wish anyone to feel pressured.

Around £1,000 a month is the crucial figure, so I’m hoping to find 100 people who can afford £10 a month, or 200 a fiver and so on. Those who support will – if they want to be – be recognised on the ‘about’ page of the blog for their generosity.

If you’re able to help, please click here or use the ‘donate’ button above to set up a monthly PayPal donation and drop me a line on skwawkbox@outlook.com to let me know whether you’d like to be included on the public supporters’ list and, if you would, what details should be shown. One-off donations are of course also always welcome.

If you can’t help directly, please share this. If you can, then you have my sincere thanks and appreciation.


  1. I will pay £1 a month as I already pay lots to different things (including UNITE after reading your story about Len) and am only a student. Thanks for writing such a fantastic blog.

  2. Just realised the donate button is only on the Web edition, and until today I’d only discovered the email edition. May cause confusion.

    1. Ah, thanks. I don’t know if it’s possible to include it in an email, but I’ll make sure to mention it in future to avoid confusion.

  3. Looking at donating as you provide a great service to the Labour left. You really should try patreon.com if you want to try the monthly donation model. Alot of content makers/journalists use it and it really seems to help generate some substantial cash flow to keep creative people creating. Heres a good example: patreon.com/AvlBlade
