No news is BAD news for Mike’s libel defence – so please donate!

It is nearly two months since I or my solicitors heard anything from those acting for Rachel Riley and Tracy Ann Oberman in their false claim of libel against me.

This does not mean they have given up. In fact, I think they are waiting to find out the result of my crowdfunding appeal before deciding whether to file proceedings against me.

It is a financial consideration, you see; it has nothing to do with whether I wrote anything defamatory about the two complainants – and we all know that I didn’t, in any case.

I think they are waiting to see if I will have raised enough money to be able to defend myself against them in an expensive court case.

At the time of writing, it seems likely that I will not. Libel cases are incredibly expensive and donations to my CrowdJustice appeal have slowed to a trickle.

So my appeal today is for you to ask yourself: Do I want these two people to win, just because they are filthy rich? Am I happy to watch British justice lowering itself to the gutter in that way? Or will I do what I can to make sure that this does not happen?

Those of you who have donated already – many times, in some cases – have already done more than most. But you are best-placed to get the message out to the widest possible number of potential doners.

Here comes the important part that you may have read many times before:

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

You could also post a link to Facebook, asking your friends to pledge. Again, the address is

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

If the complainants file proceedings after this appeal closes, it will be too late for you to donate.

Please help give them a good reason to think twice about it.

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.
