Massive response to Mike’s libel defence fund – but more is desperately needed

Wealth outweighs truth: That is the fact about British justice – and it’s how the individuals who have falsely accused Vox Political’s Mike Sivier of libel seem to want to beat him. It is an abuse of the system. Don’t let them get away with it.

What a difference a few days can make!

When I started the fundraising campaign to fight false accusations of libel by Rachel Riley and Tracy Ann Oberman, I thought it would be hard to reach even the initial target by the deadline. It was reached – and exceeded – the day after the appeal started.

And now, just six days into this campaign, you have helped raise more than one-third of the “stretch” target of £25,000.

I’m extremely grateful – but the campaign needs more, because – well. Let me tell you what I’m doing with the money:

My solicitors are already in contact with the representative of Ms Riley and Ms Oberman and are impressing on all concerned that their case lacks substance.

We also intend to use your money to seek the opinion of a specialist counsel. This will allow me to decide how best to use further funds that you raise to help me defend the facts.

And I will need more. We’re still a long way away from the target – but you’ve made a great start.

Please keep giving if you can – and keep sharing this campaign with friends and contacts who may also wish to donate. You can do this several ways:

  1. Email five friends who may be sympathetic, and encourage them to donate.
  2. Share the campaign on Facebook:
  3. Tweet the campaign link to your followers.

Supporters of this campaign have done fantastically well so far – let’s keep it up!

I’ll keep you informed of further developments.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

Vox Political needs your help!

    Pleased to hear this Mike. I’ve made a donation and look forward to receiving updates, which I hope will be that the others sides legal rep has the good sense to advise them that the claim made is without substance and is an abuse of the courts process. All the best to you.
