Let’s get straight into it


Martyn Martin “Wrongly Wrongson” Bradbury’s Unite Union, Mana Party, Internet Party and Dotcom supported blog appears to be the true victim of Dirty Politics.  Having hyped the demise of Whaleoil, and delivering the exact opposite, its supporters are finally seeing that in reality that blog did nothing but make Whaleoil even more popular.

Oh the unintended consequences…


How Google saw last month



And some of the other stuff you like looking at



Where are we at then?

12 months ago, we clocked 2,064,075 pageviews during December.  L’;ast month, we clocked 3,008,922.  That’s 50% growth in 12 months.


Meet the team

Full credit to Mrs Slater who writes as Spanish Bride (SB).  She picked up a lot of the slack last month to give Cam a well deserved rest, and what is both exciting and concerning, she’s building her own fan base.  We’re also ably assisted by Lux, James, EWWBL, Roger, Sonovamin and Nige.  We are joined by Alex (AS) who has picked up the Map of the Day duties.  All these people volunteer to support Whaleoil.  They are unpaid, but their help takes the load off Cam and me to the point where we can continue to produce a “Whaleoil” for you every day, all year ’round.   Even during the holidays.

Thank you all so much for your support.


A quiet nudge…

I hate to keep harping on about financial support, but this time of year is always expensive for everyone, and as a result your support slips too.  If you have a spare few dollars, and January is your birthday month, please consider flicking a few dollars into our begging bowl.  Thank you.


And thank you, again

The thing that tickles us pink is that you keep coming back out of your own free will.  It annoys our opponents that whatever they try to do to interfere with our rise and rise, they can’t convince you to stop coming back for more.

It is clearly a symbiotic relationship – we wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t for you, and you wouldn’t come here if it wasn’t for us.  But somehow, together, we’ve become and remain an unstoppable force.

Thank you for your support.  It’s why we work so hard.  And it’s why we are successful – all of us.
