www.socialscrutiny.org (DoSS) started life as an entry for a website competition - Channel 4's Comedy Circuit - which it went on to win in 2003.

After all the fuss died down and I was released from the iron grip of C4's compliance lawyers, I decided to host DoSS myself with regularly updated extra material. DoSS is now about 4 times the size of the original site and growing all the time.

In July 2004, the site received a major overhaul with new features and sections styled "A User's Guide to Britain".
