On Thursday night, Channel 4 news featured video of an undercover reporter working in a call centre run by Blue Telecoms on behalf of the Tories, showing activity involving apparent breaches of electoral and data protection law as the Tory party attempted to swing key marginal seats in its favour in the recent General Election.

The SKWAWKBOX has exclusively obtained text messages sent out by Blue Telecoms to one of its call-centre workers over a period of around five weeks of the General Election campaign – texts which:

  • show how much money the Tories were prepared to throw at this campaign, with hourly rates far in excess of typical call-centre rates, as the SKWAWKBOX’s source made clear
  • appear to show an increasing desperation on the part of Blue Telecom (and therefore the Tories) to get more workers and longer hours as polling showed Corbyn closing the voting intention gap
  • show…

BBC News just featured Radiohead’s performance last night at Glastonbury in its hourly bulletin. Apparently all that happened was that lead singer Thom Yorke ‘lost himself for 120 minutes’.

Not a mention of what else happened there and the rest of the country is buzzing about:

Sadly, it’s no surprise that our national broadcaster is ignoring unprecedented scenes of support for a politician.

But it’s still a shame and a scandal.

Already at Glastonbury this week, there was the amazing sight of dancers at a ‘silent disco’ breaking spontaneously into the now-famous ‘Oh Jeremy Corbyn’ chant that began when he appeared to 20,000 Libertines fans at Tranmere Rovers’ stadium during the General Election campaign:

There have been reports of similar outbreaks among street crowds, at union conferences and other events all around the country. But one of the most spine-tingling – or spine-chilling if you’re a Tory – sights and sounds you will see and hear took place on Friday night during the Glastonbury performance by music legends Radiohead, when tens of thousands of fans broke into the chant in a darkness lit only by stage lights, mobile phone screens and glo-sticks:

The SKWAWKBOX had a long and traumatic conversation this evening with a businesswoman based near Grenfell Tower who has friends and employees affected by the terrible fire and has been working to provide support and shelter to them and others.

The woman, who wanted her information to be told but asked not to be identified, told this blog about families who survived and those that didn’t, about the contribution of police and council staff or the lack of it – and about fears that the real death toll could be even higher than the 150-200 that music stars Lily Allen and Saskilla told reporters about.

Her own words, unadorned apart from the removal of names and floor numbers, follow:

There are two children that we know really well who were in the block. One family got out, the father was able to shield their little girl and thank God…
