Donation drive

At the end of every second month, this site rattles the tin to gently remind its valued readers of its reliance on their patronage. If it tugs at your heart or (better yet) purse strings to know, ad revenue has fallen nearly 90% since the election – although the starting point was low enough that that’s probably not as big a deal as it sounds. In any case, donations are gratefully received via the PressPatron button at the top of the page, or the “become a supporter” buttons that appear at the foot of each post. If you are having technical problems with the donation facilities, please drop me a line at pollbludger-AT-bigpond-DOT-com.
