The five most read posts of the month were:
1. Natalija Belova and The Sun's Benefit Lies
2. SWP, Rape, and Revolutionary Justice
3. Where Now for the SWP?
4. SWP: Life on the Revolutionary Treadmill
5. Top 100 Independent Tweeting Bloggers
The Sun's dodgy demonisation of a not-entirely-plausible single mum living a "life of riley" on social security saw my busiest-ever day as the post went viral. By the time the clock struck midnight on the 20th, some 12,000 page views had surged through the blog. If that didn't kick the cobwebs away, nothing will. But January has really been SWP month. With National Committee this weekend and moves against the opposition underway, don't be too surprised to see more SWP-related musings in next month's top five.
And, as ever, the one post that deserves a little more love for January is Housing Benefit Cuts and Social Engineering.
