SICKENING bullying of innocents shows Riley won’t stop until she is made to

Take a look at this:

The “friend to Holocaust deniers” is, according to Ms Riley, the film director Ken Loach. But he is nothing of the sort and there is no evidence showing otherwise.

You’re probably familiar with the story. Mr Loach, along with Jewish poet Michael Rosen, was chosen to judge a children’s competition run by the anti-racism charity Show Racism The Red Card.

Ms Riley tweeted, and then deleted, this criticism, calling both “deniers/proponents of anti-Jewish racism”:

Note that no evidence was put forward in support of these wild claims.

SRTRC initially refused to change its decision, but the announcement trumpeted by the Board of Deputies of British Jews, suggested a u-turn.

All was not as it seemed, though.

In fact, as SRTRC has now stated, the decision for Mr Loach to withdraw was mutual – and based on the fact that he and his family had been subjected to appalling abuse – both online and in person – by people who had swallowed the Riley/BoD narrative, or had a similarly hate-filled agenda of their own.

See for yourself:

“A significant factor in Ken Loach’s decision is the abuse online and in person that he and his family have received. It is profoundly distressing, and he is very concerned to protect those closest to him.”

It seems the claim against Mr Loach was that he had mistakenly emailed in support of a person accused of anti-Semitism. He had immediately withdrawn that support after the facts were put before him.

That’s not enough for the hate-mongers, though. I have experience of this myself; having been contacted by a person who said she had been falsely accused, I discovered that the accusations were accurate and cut ties with her. It was enough for the haters and they still use the incident as an excuse to tar me with false accusations.

I cannot prove that Ms Riley’s tweet prompted others to abuse Mr Loach and his family (although it is certainly an example of such abuse itself). But how many other people broadcast the false claims? And on whose information were those claims based?

The latest tweet makes one thing perfectly clear:

Rachel Riley isn’t going to stop.

She will continue with her campaign of online abuse and bullying – against innocent people – until she is made to stop by the power of the law.

So it’s hand that there is a case currently in motion that could achieve just that end.

Ms Riley has accused me of libelling her, issuing court proceedings against me. I believe she has done this in the knowledge that libel cases are horrifyingly expensive; she thought I would not have the funds and would have to give in – essentially, she thought she could use her vast wealth to buy justice.

So far, I have been able to crowdfund the money needed to mount a defence – but the case is going to court and I will need much more in order to succeed.

If you think Ms Riley’s abuse of innocent people is as despicable as I do, please help me fight her. Here’s how:

Donate to my CrowdJustice campaign.

Email your friends, asking them to pledge to the CrowdJustice site.

Post a link to Facebook, asking your friends to pledge.

On Twitter, you could tweet in support, quoting the address of the appeal.

On other social media platforms, please mention the campaign there, quoting the appeal address.

Mr Loach is innocent of wrong-doing, his family certainly are, and so am I. So, I suspect, are many more of Ms Riley’s victims.

Please help stop this vile victimisation and bullying.

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.

    that is why I blocked both of them, refuse to watch countdown and any other rubbish there in and will not be changing my mind soon about that, I also note that one of them appears in shows, I shall be looking up the line up when shows are on after this virus mess and if there in it, I won’t be seeing it

    Is this the person from Channel 4 Countdown? She’s bringing the programme into disrepute. In this case if not in other cases she’s clearly exposing her true unfair nature. This Sivier Riley case is important as she is clearly in the wrong. Sivier needs funding. For Riley to be defeated in what is a high profile case would be a setback for BoD who are playing similar unfair games in the Labour Party.

      yes, it is from countdown which I used to watch when Carol Vorderman and Richard Whiteley ran it, I have not since

        I liked Richard and Carol. Richard Whitely was from Yorkshire and presented regional news here and was very popular because he had a cheeky side to him and was much loved in Yorkshire. Carol Vorderman was devastated at his death. She was an ideal sparring partner for him at Countdown and very fast with the numbers. I don’t like Rachel Riley. She is just unfair in what’s she doing. She’s running a political vendetta against those who are concerned about the treatment of Palestinians by Israel government. They could still pretty much run the show without behaving as they do now. It doesn’t make sense. I don’t watch Countdown anymore but I stopped watching it when Carol Vorderman left after Richard Whitely died. There are other TV performers like Rachel Riley who are massively active in the campaign of lies and threats against people who just want a better settlement between the two sides out in the Middle East.

    As if there are more important issues to deal with. Ms Riley needs to call a halt to her hate campaign. Now.

    This Riley person is spreading zionist poison and zionism is the most perverse form of anti semitism out there. Is she aware of this? Does she even care? She maybe good at number crunching and looking all pretty for the tv cameras but the longer she continues this demented campaign via social media the more l’m inclined to believe she isn’t a bit dim or being misguided by others. I’m of the growing opinion she is a genuine nasty piece of work who knows exactly what she is doing. I hope you stuff her in court Mike, I really do. Not just for yourself but for many many others.

  5. Simon Tucker

    I still want to know how her strident defence of Zionism, sorry, Judaism, is squared with adultery, divorce and conceiving children out of wedlock. Are they pillars of the Jewish faith or is she more than a tad hypocritical?
