The SKWAWKBOX

olivertwistSince 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.

Most recently, the NEC initiated disciplinary proceedings against Wallasey vice-Chair Paul Davies for helping to create a detailed document refuting the allegations and highlighting the report’s inconsistencies and false statements. Davies wrote to party General Secretary Iain McNicol and received a breathtakingly arrogant letter in reply, which the SKWAWKBOX published on Friday…

Job Centre closures in Scotland were announced a few months ago.

Today (Welfare Weekly):

The Scottish National Party has condemned Scottish Secretary David Mundell for ‘failing to lift a finger’ to prevent the UK Government from shutting half of the job centres in Glasgow, as the campaign against closures gathers pace.

A consultation on closing 8 of the city’s 16 job centres – first revealed last month – comes to a close at the end of January. The SNP’s MPs, MSPs and councillors in Glasgow are encouraging the public to sign a petition against the plans.

A cross-party letter to David Mundell asking the Scottish Secretary to back the campaign – whose signatories include all of Glasgow’s MPs and MSPs except the two Conservative MSPs – has gone unanswered.

Repeatedly pressed on the issue in the House of Commons this week, Mr Mundell failed to give any commitment…
