Mrs Mike’s emotional support for Vox Political writer against Riley lawsuit

Yes: It’s the “truth v money” clip-art again. Live with it. I have to.

Those of you who follow my Vox Political website will be aware that I am a carer for a person with a long term illness and disabilities – and I have to report that she isn’t happy.

I don’t think there’s much to say beyond her own words, so here she is:

“Woke up bad after Mike got his letter saying Rachel Riley is taking him to court for standing up for a teenage girl she bullied.

“All I was thinking was what if he loses, what’s going to happen to us, and it brought me down. It made me feel very anxious, on top of my own problems, and I just felt crap.

“I thought, I’ve been doing better every day lately, now I’ve come down again and it’s putting extra strain on things but I’m also angry about people calling Mike a liar.

“He always checks the facts and he always does what’s right so when I woke up I talked to him about it, and he asked if I wanted him to give up. NO!

“I’m too angry with her and the fact that she can’t see what she’s doing wrong.”

So there you have it.

Mrs Mike suffers with anxiety-related illnesses – so she sympathises with the teenager Ms Riley bullied for obvious reasons.

I was grateful when she said I must keep fighting – more so when she started getting responses like this:

“I’ve never known Mike to lie about anything ever + I’ve known him about 15-20yrs he’s a good + kind man luv to u both xx”

But I need funds, otherwise my fight will fall flat.

It’s only two days since Ms Riley filed court proceedings against me and already my appeal is nearly £5,000 richer – but libel cases are fantastically expensive.

I hate to ask for more because it seems too much to ask, but there’s nothing else for it. Get ready for the hard sell:

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

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.

And if you can afford it, please consider pledging some more cash yourself.

You have already shown me that you want me to keep fighting.

I need to be able to take this fight to the finish.

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.
