Riley libel crowdfund is so near to goal – but not there yet

So near – and yet so far.

According to my very rough calculations, the CrowdJustice fund to get a court hearing for my defence against Rachel Riley’s libel claim is very close to success.

I reckon that, with outside contributions included, we’re less than £4,000 away from hitting target.

I’ll still be crowdfunding after we hit that level, in case of unexpected expenses. You wouldn’t think much of me if I fell foul of something nobody had seen coming!

With all this in mind, and also bearing in mind that it’s the end of the month and many people have just been paid, I reckon we could hit that target with a bit of effort.

Shall we give it a try? Here are the instructions again:

Make a donation via the CrowdJustice page. Keep donating regularly until you see the total pass the amount I need.

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

Post a link to Facebook, asking readers to pledge.

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

Use other social media in the same way.

And don’t forget that if you’re having trouble, or simply don’t like donating via CrowdJustice, you can always donate direct to me via the Vox Political PayPal button at the bottom of this article. But please remember to include a message telling me it’s for the crowdfund!

I’ve been through the evidence again and I’m satisfied that there’s a really strong case to be made. All I need to do is get into a court and present it.

We’re on the verge of being able to do that – and then we’ll really see sparks fly!

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.
