Spiked Online is a British internet magazine focusing on politics, culture and society. Their outlook is Anti globalism and pro Brexit and pro liberty. While being sponsored by certain interests, Spiked tends have an editorial line that go against the grain of the line in the larger corporate media outlets.

The website's editor is Brendan O'Neill.


A 2018 article by the Guardian (itself founded to the hilt from dubious sources) found three payments over the past two years to Spiked from the Charles Koch Foundation. They amounted to $170,000 (£130,000), earmarked for “general operating support”. The payments were made to Spiked US Inc, a donations website that appears to have been established in 2016, the year in which the Koch donations began. The Kochs are mentioned in several Spiked articles, but no corresponding interests are declared.[1]

Spiked also holds seminars. Some of them was held at Hill & Knowlton, the infamous public relations company.[2]
