Three days to go: this could be your last chance to support my libel fight

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.

If you’ve been following the progress of Rachel Riley’s libel case against me, you’ll know there’s a TPI – that’s “Trial of Preliminary Issues” – in the Royal Courts of Justice on Wednesday (December 11).

The issues under examination are what the words in my article that Ms Riley finds objectionable actually mean – and whether they constitute an expression of fact or a statement of opinion.

So this could be your last chance to contribute to the CrowdJustice fund before we begin the big climb to the main trial.

Are you going to help me out?

You probably know the routine by now but, just so there’s no confusion, here’s how you can help:

Email five of your friends, asking them to pledge to the CrowdJustice site. The address is

You could also post a link to Facebook, asking your friends to pledge.

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 please consider making another donation yourself – or contributing for a first time, if you haven’t already.

I’ll post a full update after the hearing, of course.

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.
