The Skwawkbox continues to unsettle and expose the Establishment and affect the UK’s political narrative. Here are a few examples of the information we’ve either brought our readers exclusively or else raised focus and attention on, since our last update a few weeks ago:

  • Boris Johnson’s lie about Porton Down’s findings on the source of the nerve agent used in the Salisbury attack – and then his second lie (or worse) about the UK holding samples for comparison
    johnson lie 2
  • the BBC’s clear moves to protect Johnson from the consequences of his lies, by obscuring and ‘losing’ filmed interview questions
  • comments by the chemistry professor of a world-renowned university – Novichok-group compounds are ‘simple as hell’ to make and could be manufactured by any number of non-state facilities
  • the Tories’ admission of uncertainty, in court papers, over the toxin used in Salisbury
  • details of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons’ (OPCW) plans to take its own samples for testing and not trust the government’s samples as authentic
  • flaws in Tory claims of Conservative party membership numbers
  • the letter sent by women of the Unite union to the Observer about a disgraceful, misogynist attack on Labour’s General Secretary (then a candidate), Jennie Formby. The Observer did not have the integrity to print it
  • the disregard for proper procedures and consultation in Liverpool University’s decision to make over two hundred academic staff redundant in spite of obvious consequences for students’ education
  • the loss of confidence of black, Asian and minority women MPs in women’s PLP chair, the ‘centrist’ West Midlands MP Jess Phillips
  • the suspension of a senior, centrist Labour official, former West Midlands mayor  and ally of deputy leader Tom Watson, amid allegations of abuse and anti-democratic practices
  • revealed the anti-Labour history of a ‘Labour donor’ who said he was leaving the party
  • the fact that, according to unpublished data gathered by YouGov for the Labour-hostile Campaign against Antisemitism, antisemitism among Labour members and supporters has fallen sharply under Jeremy Corbyn, in spite of public claims to the contrary
  • the avoidance by centrist Labour MPs of questions on their record of anti-racist activism, which led to 41 of them writing an open letter to the Huffington Post rather than provide answers
  • the extraordinary meltdown by former Unite official Gerard Coyne, whose statement about the latest hearing in his legal case against Unite consisted largely of things that were not discussed at the hearing
  • ‘confused’ centrist MP John Woodcock’s wilting under the stares of good Labour MPs after he sided with Tories during a Commons debate on Russia
  • the innate antisemitism of BBC assumptions about the infamous Mear One mural
  • Theresa May’s antisemitic trope during Prime Minister’s Questions
  • news and inside information on right-wing Labour MP Frank Field’s censure by his local party for continuing to write for the despised S*n

and more.

All of this information and more is provided free of charge – and ad-free – to get the information to as many people as possible, in the most accessible, readable form possible.
