This reader’s video of support for Mike’s libel fight against Rachel Riley is humbling

I haven’t been keeping up with Twitter as much as I should recently. I know, it’s remiss of me, but when one is under attack by people who are constantly lying, it can be a little wearing.

Sadly, it means I may have been missing some incredibly strong messages of support as well.

I’ve never met Cornish Damo, except online, where I have enjoyed his contributions to This Site and to Twitter. I had no idea of the effect my articles have had on him until I saw what follows. See for yourself:

That’s the kind of response that makes me proud – not just of my stand against bullies like Rachel Riley, but all of it – the site, the people who read it, and the effect I have had – inasmuch as it is possible to have an effect with a low-readership politics web page.

It also humbles me to be part of something that now seems much larger.

Are there any more such contributions that I should see? Perhaps I could show them in court, to show the judge how right-thinking people have responded to my articles.

I won’t go through all the usual rigmarole about contributing to the crowdfunding campaign. If what you’ve just seen has encouraged you to donate, please visit

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.

    Facing possible court proceedings can be very isolating. But here is a whole community supporting you, we’ve been with you since the early days, and will stick with you through thick and thin. You are a “knight in shining armour” for the disabled who haven’t got the strength or the wherewithall to challenge the DWP, the Labour members falsely accused of AS, and now those who are being threatened into silence by the cost of legal action.

    Just try and remember that when it seems bleak.

    Curiously, Mike, you were the first independent news site I came across and subscribed to when I was writing ‘A Letter a Day to Number 10’.

    Back in 2012 the opposition was thin on the ground and the Tory plans were not clear, such was the level of their deceit. You have been informing us these long years past and I am incredibly grateful for your diligence and hard work to this day.

    Thankfully independent media has been steadily growing and I no longer read any main stream media news sites, other than in passing, as they, almost every one, have betrayed us.

    I hope to be reading Vox Political for many years to come, hopefully when those who are attacking you are a mere memory.

    Peace and solidarity. Keith.

    Just wanted to say Mike, that your writing has made a strong impression on me and likely many others for several years. The subjects you cover are important and usually underreported. Thanks for all that you do.
