Overwhelming response to crowdfunding appeal by Vox Political writer fighting false libel claims

Vox Political’s Mike Sivier has been the victim of false accusations before – in 2018 he was accused of anti-Semitism by newspapers including The Sunday Times and it took him nearly a year to secure corrections from them.

What a staggering show of support from members of the public! I am overwhelmed.

For those who don’t know, I have been accused of libel by TV personalities Rachel Riley and Tracy-Ann Oberman after I published an article criticising their treatment of a teenage girl with anxiety issues, who suffered harassment and intimidation as a result of their attention.

All the details are on the CrowdJustice page (see the link below).

I’m not going to apologise to two bullies for the results of their ill-advised actions.

But the legal bill they are forcing on me, to fight the nonsense of a case they are making against me, would be crippling for a person of my limited means.

They know this. It seems to me that they are deliberately targeting people like myself, who have little money, with the cynical intention of embroiling us in legal proceedings that will cost more than we can afford, in order to force us into giving up and paying them money they do not deserve.

That is not justice. That is abuse of the justice system.

So I launched a crowdfunding appeal on the CrowdJustice website – initially aiming to raise £5,000 towards my own legal fees (I have already put £5,000 of my own money towards my defence). There’s a “stretch” target of £25,000 which is itself a fraction of the likely cost if this case goes to court.

At the time of writing, that page has received £3,398 – nearly two-thirds of the initial target. That represents a staggering show of support for my case and myself – and a huge condemnation of the two TV personalities.

To those who have contributed, I can only say: Thank you. Your support will help me fight on.

To those who have not yet done so: Please consider making a donation.

What a message it would send out, if I hit my initial target within a single day of launching my appeal!
