Thanks to its readers, the SKWAWKBOX is hitting new heights. This blog’s previous record for visits to its pages was set in March at almost 282,000 – an undreamed-of figure when this blog was first set up – but we were confident that would be beaten in April. We just didn’t realise by how much.
Yesterday, the number reached 400,000 – and then breezed past it to finish April on almost 448,000.
The SKWAWKBOX is getting noticed/ruffling feathers in high places. As mentioned last week, a major mainstream publication is preparing an article on ‘new left media’ in which the blog features prominently because ‘it’s the one every MP mentions’.
And just yesterday, former new Labour head of press and broadcasting name-checked the blog during an anti-Corbyn rant:
Although the prize for best response in that thread definitely has to go to Chris Cavanagh:
The blog is getting up the noses of the right people. So thank you for your support, information, leads, retweets, Facebook shares and encouragement that are so vital and appreciated.
Oh, and before someone tries to label the site ‘clickbait’ because we’re happy it’s being more widely read, please have a look around the page. You’ll notice there are no ads. Ads and ad revenue define clickbait – but some right-wingers struggle with the concept.
This blog does not make any advertising revenue, it depends entirely on the generosity of its readers (and lots of coffee).
The information is the thing – getting good information and getting it known, so the more people hear about and read it, the better.
The SKWAWKBOX is provided free of charge but depends on the generosity of its readers to be viable.

Thanks for your support so this blog can keep bringing you information the Establishment would prefer you not to know about.
