Funds are rolling in but Riley is on her way to court

In British justice, facts don’t matter if you don’t have the money to get them heard in court. If YOU want the facts to be heard in court, please donate.

Nearly £1,000 has been added to my appeal for funds to fight false libel claims by Rachel Riley and Tracy Ann Oberman, since CrowdJustice extended the campaign by 30 days.

We now have nearly £16,000. It’s a brilliant start to the extension period and a huge step towards the stretch target of £25,000.

And it may be vital. Last weekend it was revealed that Ms Riley is launching court action for libel – against a Labour Party officer who drew what many consider to be a logical conclusion about one of her tweets.

Is Ms Riley likely to win? I don’t think so. But it shows that she will go through with her threats of litigation.

So let’s make sure that, if she tries it on me, she has a fight on her hands.

Followers of this issue will know that I believe the complainants in this case are hoping I will not be able to raise enough money to put up a reasonable defence against them, while they have the advantage of substantially larger cash reserves.

This is a battle between wealth and justice, with wealth being used to hide the facts.

Please help ensure that the facts cannot be denied.

If you haven’t done so already, please email five of your friends, asking them to pledge to this case.

If you’re on Twitter, you could tweet in support, quoting the address of the appeal.

Every penny helps. Every share on the social media helps. Please help.

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.

    Do you really need legal representation to fight this matter?

    In my experience the legal profession usually make matters far worse unless you are paying them millions.

    The best defence you could ever have against any claim of libel is the truth about your honestly held position and the comments you made.

      Yes, but you have to present it in the right way and at the right time. These people have employed as their own solicitor someone who is very clever at turning the law to his own advantage and in such circumstances I do not think trusting myself to get the defence right would be a very wise route. Remember, there is a lot riding on this.
