Riley’s libel trial documentation is longer than a Bible. Another time-waster?

Rachel Riley’s solicitors have delivered their final version of the trial bundle – all the documents that will be available to her (and to me) at my libel trial next month.

It runs to 1,056 pages.

I have been advised to familiarise myself with it, so I know where to find particular elements of evidence in the case (I think). This should help me demonstrate my own interpretation of what the case is about.

And this leads me to a significant point: if I’m spending my time dealing with this wealth of information (much of which, I’m inclined to believe, isn’t actually relevant), then I’m not working on my website, Vox Political.

If I’m not producing material for VP, then I won’t be paid (or at least, I won’t be paid as much as I would, otherwise).

So, is this just another strategy to put me out-of-pocket?

I tend to think the whole lawsuit against me qualifies as such a thing. I must have spent thousands of hours working on this, or thinking about it – time that could have been better spent elsewhere.

I’m sure Rachel Riley doesn’t care; what’s it to her if some guy she has unjustly accused loses a bit more money as a result of her behaviour?

You may feel otherwise, of course.

The crowdfund is still open, and of course if you don’t want to contribute that way, it is still possible to fund me via PayPal. Rachel Riley may hate that!

Here are the details:

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 <em>Vox Political</em> PayPal button at the bottom of this article. But please remember to include a message telling me it’s for the crowdfund!

This case has been a long, terrible strain on my well-being, finances and resources. Hopefully we’ll be able to put a stop to all that in July.

The best way is to ensure that I can afford to.

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.
