Jewish Chronicle forced to follow again after SKWAWKBOX reveals Orthodox protest plan

At the beginning of this week, the SKWAWKBOX contacted the Jewish Chronicle (JC) to ask why it hadn’t published a text from an Orthodox Jewish group confirming that a Corbyn-supporting letter by leading Charedi (Orthodox) rabbis was genuine and that this blog would be publishing it shortly. The JC had quietly rowed back from claims […]

SKWAWKBOX continues making a splash. Please support if you can

The SKWAWKBOX continues to have a substantial impact on the UK’s political narrative and on the information available to the left and the wider public – in many cases bringing information that would not be available elsewhere. The effectiveness and importance of that information can be seen in further Establishment attempts to restrict its circulation […]

SKWAWKBOX emails Jewish Chronicle with evidence. ‘Coincidence’ follows like lightning

Last week, the SKWAWKBOX revealed that the Jewish Chronicle (JC) had quietly amended its claim that a letter supporting Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and signed by twenty-nine leading Orthodox rabbis, which had been published on this blog, was fake.

Jewish Chronicle rows quietly back from claims rabbis’ Corbyn-support letter is fake

On Monday, the SKWAWKBOX published a letter signed by twenty-nine Orthodox rabbis denouncing ‘irresponsible’ claims that Jews are ‘outraged’ toward ‘respected’ Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn or that Jewish citizens are considering leaving the UK because of him.

Hard-right smear site Guido Fawkes opens its big, ugly trap and insert a ‘strangely small’ foot yesterday when it tried to propagate the claim that a Corbyn government would trigger an exodus of Jewish people from the UK: Like the rest of the Establishment, Fawkes wants people to believe that this represents a grave worsening of […]

Labour right goes bananas at NEC result – and provides a lesson for the left

Opinion Monday’s outstanding result for the grassroots-left ‘slate’ of candidates – a clean sweep of all nine positions – in the elections for Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC) was a huge boost for the morale and plans of Labour’s huge pro-Corbyn majority and the Labour leadership. Conversely, it was a massive blow to the Labour […]

The SKWAWKBOX: shadowbanned by Facebook? As regular readers will be aware, during July and August the SKWAWKBOX came under a number of technical attacks, with sophisticated methods used to block access to its articles.

Please support the SKWAWKBOX. Here’s how we changed the narrative in the last month

The SKWAWKBOX continues to be a thorn in the side of the Establishment and the right. This was demonstrated in the last few weeks perhaps most tellingly by the series of technical attacks on the site to prevent access just as especially inconvenient articles started to take off – and by even the BBC’s default […]

9000 to c.200 – Labour’s ratio of accusations found justified in 2016

One of the features of recent antisemitism claims about the Labour Party has been a tendency by mainstream media and Labour’s opponents to treat the number of complaints pending as if every one of them means a guilty member. But of course, some complaints are found not to be justified. The current ratio of complaints […]

Unison official resigns over Prentis IHRA examples support

A week ago, Unison general secretary Dave Prentis said that his union would support the adoption by the Labour Party of the IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) examples of antisemitism in full. In doing so, he opened the way for his own union to be labelled antisemitic. Labour has adopted the entire IHRA ‘working definition’, […]
