This may seem counter-productive as I am currently crowd-funding for a court case I have to fight later this year – but we need to stand together.
Chris Williamson MP’s membership of the Labour Party has been re-suspended over accusations of anti-Semitism, in a move that he claims breaches party rules.
The trumped-up claim against him is very similar to the nonsense that was said about a teenage girl by Rachel Riley, about which I wrote an article that induced Ms Riley to sue me for libel.
I don’t take kindly to false accusations. They bring British justice into disrepute – whether in court or in organisations like Labour.
So I’m calling on supporters of Vox Political to help Mr Williamson out – as many of you have helped me. You can read the details of his planned action by clicking on the link in this tweet:
Our crowdfunder is now live.
Chris Williamson is challenging his ‘re-suspension’ by @UKLabour as unlawful. But to do so, he needs your support.

As for my own crowdfunder…
I expected matters to go quiet over the summer, and they have – although there seems to have been an attempt by Ms Riley’s lawyers to engage mine in a dialogue about the meaning of my article and whether parts of it were based on fact or opinion.
As my representatives tried to discuss these matters with them but heard nothing for two months until they filed proceedings with the court, I consider this to be an attempt to waste my money on costly legal letters.
It’s the kind of trick we can expect from people who try to use wealth to buy justice.
If you don’t like the idea of tactics like that, please join your contribution to my CrowdJustice campaign; I need a lot more cash to mount a really strong defence.
Here are the details:
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. The address is https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/
If you’re on Twitter, you could tweet in support, quoting the address of the appeal.
If you use other social media platforms, please mention the campaign there, quoting the appeal address.
And if you can afford it, please consider pledging some more cash yourself.
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.
