A little about the SKWAWKBOX and the aim of this blog

The SKWAWKBOX is written to try to present information and analysis that will rarely make it into the mainstream media because it doesn’t fit their agenda and the narrative they want to present.

News: the SKWAWKBOX now has a range of T-shirts and hoodies. If you’d like to help raise awareness of the blog and of the new Left media generally, take a look here.

Sometimes, the media do catch up later. This blog has broken some major stories over the years that the media has caught onto eventually.

The debunking of the ‘Mid Staffs NHS scandal’, supposedly involving ‘400-1200 needless deaths’ was a statistical misrepresentation combined with a political agenda that involved ‘perhaps one’ avoidable death. At the time, all the media were singing from the same hymnsheet, but eventually the Guardian, Independent and Huffington Post all caught on. Sadly, many of the other newspapers and broadcasters still parrot a thoroughly-discredited line.

Fake psych tests imposed on jobseekers, with threats if they didn’t comply; Labour party plots and attempted coups; and latterly UKIP – the huge fraud investigations and lies about Hillsborough. The media eventually caught up on those as well.

Others are still waiting. New evidence of army dressed as police at Orgreave; Tony Blair’s and John Major’s involvement in passing off military personnel as police during their years in office; Tory lies on their NHS spending; investigations into UKIP’s distribution of child pornography – some of this was covered by the larger independent platforms such as the Canary, but the mainstream hasn’t seen fit to touch them, even though the evidence is cast-iron.

The common thread is that this blog has revealed them first. People with evidence contact the SKWAWKBOX because they know their identities will be protected and their stories presented fairly. If you have something you want to talk about, let me know.

The SKWAWKBOX isn’t written for popularity but to get the word out on essential issues, which is just as well, as the subjects covered are always going to upset some people, but they’re too important to ignore.

Hopefully, you’ll agree as you read this blog.

The SKWAWKBOX is offered free of charge, but takes a lot of time, and sometimes cost, to research and write, so if you feel able to support its work please click here or use the donate button. It will be fantastically appreciated.

George Orwell said that in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. We hope to provide some revolutionary truth to counteract the double-speak that politicians and ‘leaders’ use to try to fool people, to get us to acquiesce or co-operate in things we would reject if we knew what they really meant. The best antidote for bad or deliberately misleading information is good information – so if you think what you read here is good information, please spread the word.

Thank you for visiting and reading!

  1. Pingback: #Nuttall’s #Hillsborough #radiocity implosion goes viral. It started with the SKWAWKBOX | The SKWAWKBOX·

  2. I have copied your blog – and the video, to the Guardian and other papers, SWAWKBOX fully acknowledged. Daily Mirror too focussed on another story…interestingly the Guardian already had that clip of Nutall being in two places at once – it was in their football archive but hadn’t picked up on the contradiction, – so well done!!

  3. I am the UK’s leading court precedent/authority on vexatious decisions ref GIA/3037/2011 Dransfield v ICO .
    I believe the ICO are in meltdown are a Tory Gatekeeper. The ICO are on record that CHILDESEX ABUSE IS NOT in the Public Interest or Serious Purpose.That has been recently supported by Police Chief Nick Bailey who appears to be showing a Fig Leaf to Padeophiles.
    I also believe that a previous ICO Decision Notice which upheld a Surrey Police vexatious decision has now compromised the current Child Sex Scandal Inquiry.
    Over the past 6/8 weeks three Gov Ministry’s have relied upon the Dransfield Vexatious BS to apply section 14/1 Vexatious . They are
    1.Home Office
    3.Ministy of Justice

    In a nutshell the ICO are turning a wilful blind eye to the abuse of section 14/1 Vexatious Exemption as a Get out of Jail freecard scapegoat.

  4. Steve please get in touch as soon as possible, hot news of more Tory corruption, relating to Gloucestershire County Council, judgment has been made that they must publicly disclose information that is in the public interest, that which campaigners have been denied since the start of this particular contract. It is detailed but I have an email with links that give yo the picture, scullduggery awarding a contract and misinforming the people of Gloucestershire, secret documents released thinking they were redacted, were accidentally sent out by the council, which proved that they misinformed people.

    Really hot stuff, hope you can get mileage on it and the press feel obliged to pick it up and run with it. There is a local paper article (within the email) explaining the councils dilemma about them being forced to make information public, even though by mistake they have already done that.

    Next Wednesday campaigners will be attending the CC meeting and ask questions relating to this contract.

  5. I now have prima facie evidence that Balfour Beatty/London legacy AND the HSE colluded to cover up a construction death on the Olympic Stadium in June 2015. Can Skwawkbox assist me to expose these soundrels please.
    Geoff Stansfield will verify my source


  6. Can’t find your email address so am doing this as a comment:
    Last night, observing the count at the council elections, a Labour colleague told me that the government, AKA May, is pressuring the CPS not to do anything about the MPs under scrutiny for false election expenses until after the General Election. Have you got any news on this?
    And Skwarwkbox is great – keep telling everyone to read your stuff. Many, many thanks.


  7. You do a great job and i am a strong supporter but you’ve scored a huge own goal with your article about DWP sanctioning ESA claims for a year for not finding work after two years. I can categorically tell you that there is no such legislation, policy or guidance. I don’t know who told you the info but I suspect someone who wants to panic and scare disabled claimants. It’s certainly done that! Without one element of truth in it. There are 7 other factual errors in it apart from the sanctioning info. If your author can substantiate the sanctions info with any link to relevant legislation I will donate £100 to you immediately.


    • I was asked by a campaigner to put out an urgent bulletin about the DWP sanction and checked it with 3 long-term DWP employees who confirmed it was correct. They were wrong, which says a lot about the state of Universal Credit and the government’s incompetence. Soon as better information was available, it was published.
