Riley libel case: We’re close to funding our next court appearance. Will YOU get us over that line?

Time is ticking away: The next hearing in the Rachel Riley libel case is December 11 – and funds are desperately needed to keep it going.

To everyone who contributed to the CrowdJustice site since my last update – thank you. We’re more than £1,000 closer to funding the hearing on December 11.

I have also received a few hundred pounds in donations to Vox Political that I will put into the pot. But that means there’s still more than £5,000 to raise.

Meanwhile, Ms Riley’s behaviour gets stranger and stranger. Last week she managed to libel a solicitor who happened to have the same name as someone accused of anti-Semitism (see here). Informed of the blunder, she apologised, saying she did not want to spread untruths. You may find that a hard line to accept!

Since then, she supported the words of a Scottish priest who heckled Jeremy Corbyn, on the campaign trail, with the haggard old line that he is a terrorist sympathiser.

He turned out to be an anti-Semite (see here).

It seems clear that Ms Riley will continue in this manner until she is given a strong enough reason to stop.

A court defeat could be exactly such a reason.

But time is ticking down and if I can’t fund my legal team at the next hearing, it’s not going to happen.

      Yes I have seen it – and meant to do something with it, but there’s only 24 hours in a day and I didn’t get to it.
