Robbie Rix is concerned that in this festive period, comrades may forget how much we need their support
must mention comrade DB, who has decided to subscribe to the Weekly
Worker via PayPal. However, as he reads us online and he is
currently in Italy, he doesn’t really want a paper copy.
Nevertheless, it’s only right that he ‘subscribes’ at the
European rate of £7.20 a month, rather than £5 for those in the UK,
thank you, comrade. There’s no faulting your generosity - although
some might call into question the underlying logic. Still, who’s
online donor was comrade KG, who did stick to a fiver for his
one-off contribution. He and DB were among the 9,742 people who read
us via the website last week. We also received standing orders
totalling £75 and two donations by cheque - £10 on top of the sub
that EW decided to take out for a new reader, and £4 added to the
cost of Lawrence Parker’s newly published second edition of his
book, The kick inside, from comrade SJ.
of which, 20 copies were sold at the December 8 launch - and I hear
that a dozen copies have already been ordered online. It’s well
worth a read, I can tell you.
I digress. We only received £101 for our December fighting fund this
week, meaning that the total so far stands at a lowly £343. We need
£1,500 every month and I’m a little concerned that comrades will
forget their paper over the Christmas period. After next week’s
edition there’ll be no Weekly Worker until the new year. So
who’s going to nag you?
you what - how about everyone who wants to donate doing so before
next week, just so I can relax?
