They just don’t get it
Last night, a number of right-wingers – seemingly unhappy at this site’s reporting of ‘soft-left’ Labour MPs unhappy with Keir Starmer’s performance – tried to discredit the facts by claiming the article was written because the SKWAWKBOX is supposedly desperate for ‘clicks’ to generate advertising revenue.
The SKWAWKBOX carries no adverts – and even pays extra to its hosting provider to make sure none appear. Keeping the page clean and easy to read is far too important and making sure good information gets out is this site’s key goal.
Of course, if the unhappily petty right-wingers had bothered to read to the end of the article that upset them, they’d have seen how this site operates and wouldn’t have made fools of themselves – because every article on the site ends with a short paragraph that makes it clear that readers’ support is what enables the SKWAWKBOX to continue:
The SKWAWKBOX is provided free of charge but depends on the support of its readers to be viable. If you can afford to, please click here to arrange a one-off or modest monthly donation via PayPal or here to set up a monthly donation via GoCardless (SKWAWKBOX will contact you to confirm the GoCardless amount). Thanks for your solidarity so SKWAWKBOX can keep bringing you information the Establishment would prefer you not to know about.
Of course, SKWAWKBOX is also regulated by IMPRESS, the UK’s only Leveson-compliant regulator – and has a 100% rating from news reliability service Newsguard, so if the stricken Blairites had bothered to check or had the integrity to acknowledge such basic facts, they could have saved themselves some trouble.
But right-wingers just don’t get it. They never have. But as well as being dense and not being able to understand what drives the left, they can’t even read what’s right under their noses.
