It’s true: Vox Political will be taking a short break while Yr Obdt Srvt travels to London for the second round in the libel case against me, brought by Rachel Riley.

I’m hoping there will be a bit of media coverage, so you’ll probably find out the result before I have a chance to get back and tell you.

For me, this is an important case – not because a ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ TV content provider is trying to bankrupt me but because this case is about a person of huge wealth and influence using that position to intimidate a child, making it possible for her to be exposed to death threats – and then trying to use the legal system to stifle criticism of what she has done.

If I lose this, I fear it will discourage others from standing up to people like that.

And that is unacceptable.

It also means I won’t be back until after people go to the ballot boxes in the general election.

So allow me to beg you, right now…

… to “rise like lions”…

… and vote Labour.

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.
