Let’s End The Corporate Hegemony: A Newspaper For Us

Hi all,

I’ve been researching into which constituencies to target with the Spotlight Newspaper. I’ve now produced data identifying 92 key marginals with some clear targets…

  • 92 Marginals with less than a 3500 vote difference
  • 40 Marginals with less than a 1000 vote difference
  • 23 Marginals with less than a 500 vote difference
  • 10 Marginals with less than a 200 vote difference.

I’d love to be able to support the local CLPs within these constituencies with our free local newspaper but I seriously need your help to kick start this project folks. I’ve already raised 63% of the funds required for an initial 10,000 print special edition. We can use this initial print run to target one of these constituencies and this should then also allow us to raise advertising revenue to fund subsequent weekly editions and potentially produce even bigger print volumes to cover even more constituencies.

Here’s my Just Giving page for the paper folks – 

https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/spotlightnewspaper.

What ever you can contribute would be greatly appreciated and please share the link and encourage others to do the same. I’d share it myself but Facebook has deactivated my account, no doubt because I’ve been reported by more than a few Blairite and Tory trolls who clearly don’t want this project to succeed and they certainly don’t want a pro-Corbyn Socialist running what could potentially become a national tabloid now do they?

Solidarity my friends and thank you for all your support so far!
