REVEALED: expenses scandal at spiked

Never mind horse manure and duck ponds - there’s an equally worrying expenses scandal in the spiked offices.

As British politics gets bogged down in a debate about Kit Kats, horse manure and other MPs’ expenses claims, a different but equally worrying expenses scandal has gone unreported.

The expenses scandal at spiked.

The scandal is that we struggle everyday to cover our expenses. Raising enough money simply to pay our rent and running costs (no duck ponds or plasma TVs for us) is a continuous uphill battle.

We need your help. Lacking access to taxpayers’ money, or government bailouts, spiked relies on its generous readers alone for its survival.

And in order to make it through the summer, we need to raise £20,000 urgently.

That’s about the same amount Margaret Moran spent on treating dry rot – though we promise to spend the money on nothing more than our daily campaign against the rot of contemporary misanthropy and for the values of Enlightenment, liberty and excellence.

If you think we play an important role in cutting through the horse manure of contemporary debate, then please, please donate to our £20,000 fund drive TODAY.
