So, the SKWAWKBOX got it wrong tonight. Nobody’s perfect and others with far bigger resources get it wrong more often, but still annoying. That the post was deleted and a correction issued within 20 minutes or so is some comfort.
What’s interesting is the effort that went into creating the backstory – and the response afterward, with a string of right-wingers all on hand to mock. It appears the credibility of this blog is a target for some people – and hands up, they got us – but that raises the question why they are so interested to attack it.
The SKWAWKBOX has revealed cast-iron, fully-documented information over the last few weeks that has seriously embarrassed blairite Unite challenger Gerard Coyne, arch-plotter Tom Watson, bullying right-wing Labour MPs, right-wing CLP plotters, Progress and others. It has also exposed a new Tory ploy to control voters’ postal vote applications and their data.
The amount of trolling on social media has also increased hugely – much of it as clearly co-ordinated as tonight’s right-wing glee at the mistake. We appear to be worrying some people and while tonight’s slip will leave a scar, that’s a small price for disturbing people who deserve to be.
