As Riley libel trial approaches, Mike needs your help more than ever

It has been hard work, but This Writer’s amended defence against Rachel Riley’s ever-ridiculous accusation that I libelled her has been completed and I am ready to take the matter to court for trial.

I don’t think it will be giving away much if I tell you that I’m saying my article is on the following matters of public interest:

  • Online bullying and harassment including death threats.
  • The  power of an adult celebrity compared to the relative powerlessness of a vulnerable child suffering anxiety.
  • Mental health.
  • Anti-Semitism.
  • The public conduct  of  Rachel Riley, a prominent public figure and, in particular, statements she had made or caused to be made publicly in national print and     broadcast media and on Twitter.

I don’t think there is any doubt that the article did focus on these issues. Riley’s advocates will try to argue that I did not have reason to say what I did, with regard to them.

And now we begin the run-up to the trial itself, which is likely to take several days, when it happens, and will therefore cost tens of thousands of pounds. I don’t know how much yet because it depends on the amount of fuss Riley is likely to kick up beforehand.

Let’s all bear in mind the fact that this matter was delayed by a year because Riley decided she wanted to try to strike out all my defences – and failed.

She’ll still want to find ways of delaying a trial because, as far as I can tell, she still thinks her best (only?) chance to win is by depriving me of the funds I need to pay for my defence.

So far, she has been proved entirely mistaken in that belief, too.

But now the pressure is really on and I must rely on you to give as much as you can, as often as you can, until the case is finally closed:

Consider making a donation yourself, via the CrowdJustice page.

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

Please, please, please tell as many people as you can about this case, and encourage them to contribute too.

I’ll endeavour to post at least one update per week – more if event warrant them.

The current situation is that I have submitted my amended defence to Riley’s legal team, who may object if they so wish. If they do, I’ll take action to handle it.

Then… well, we’ll see what happens then, won’t we?

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.

Riley libel case: court hearing THIS FRIDAY. Help Mike win!

Before anyone comments, I know that UK courts don’t use the gavel. This is for illustrative purposes.

I am currently working with my legal team to put the finishing touches on our defence against Rachel Riley’s latest vexatious attack – a bid to have my defence against her libel action struck out.

The application will be heard in the High Court on Friday. Fortunately the court has agreed to hold it online – via Teams – as there is a risk that, having used public transport (trains and the Tube) to get there, I might carry Covid-19 back to my home town, which has been more or less virus-free throughout the pandemic. My situation applies to others who are appearing as well, I understand.

Most of the points in the Riley application appear to be either expressions of opinion that are not permissible in court or attempts to deny reality.

Part of the claim could be expressed as saying that Riley’s followers sent abusive messages to a teenage girl with anxiety problems at random, and they only happened to coincide with the TV celebrity’s Twitter threads attacking her.

That isn’t realistic.

Another claim is that Riley took pains to anonymise the girl she was attacking. This is also not true, as complaints on Twitter at the time, from concerned bystanders, made clear.

My personal opinion is that this is just another attempt to avoid having the evidence (and I have a lot of it) heard at a trial. Ms Riley seems highly averse to having this particular pile of dirty linen washed in public, which is exactly why it needs to happen.

But there is a possibility that she might win some of her points – and this could be extremely expensive for me.

She is throwing everything but the kitchen sink at this case, employing extremely expensive lawyers to make her case for her. If she wins even one point, the costs claim against me could be enormous.

That’s why she’s doing this, of course – to obstruct justice by making it impossible for me to continue. It has long been one of the strangenesses of this case that the defendant is the one who wants a trial and the claimant wants to prevent it from happening.

There are two ways to foil this plan. As I mention at the top of this update, I am working hard on the defence and hope to convince the judge with my arguments.

The other way is to ensure that I have enough funds to keep going, regardless of any minor wins the Riley team manage to score along the way.

My case is entirely crowdfunded and it is thanks to the contributions of thousands of people like you – possibly including you (I don’t know; many are anonymous) – that I have been able to get even this far.

Please help make sure I can take this all the way.

Consider making a donation yourself, if you can afford it, via the CrowdJustice page.

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.

This is a very uncertain time and I have to admit that the possibility of any kind of loss is preying on my mind. That’s exactly what the predators on the Riley legal team want, of course. Part of their strategy is to demoralise me with constant vexatious applications like this one.

Won’t they be disappointed – and I know I’ll be cheered up immensely – if I get a sudden financial boost, right before this hearing? Please help make it happen.

B&M is donating £1million to UK food banks to fight coronavirus-related supply gap

This is wonderful news and B&M has set an excellent example for other businesses to follow.

I hope they will.

Food banks have been struggling as members of the public quit funding and donating to them in order to panic-buy goods in anticipation of the coronavirus crisis.

Discount retailer B&M [has] announced a national £1 million donation to support UK food banks.

Each one of its 670 stores will support a local foodbank with a £1,500 donation of food, cleaning and personal hygiene goods to reach struggling families.

Riley troll tries scaremongering to stop you supporting CrowdJustice campaign

A desperate Twitter troll tried to claim people supporting my CrowdJustice campaign would be liable to pay any costs if I lose.

It was a desperate attempt to undermine the huge amount of public support I have received, with nearly £35,000 provided for the campaign.

As is now well-known, celebrity game-player Rachel Riley is taking This Writer to court, claiming that I libelled her over her ill-treatment of a teenage girl with mental health issues.

It seems she wanted to bully me into paying her thousands of pounds, by threatening me with a court action in which I could not possibly afford to defend myself.

So I launched a funding campaign with CrowdJustice, drawing a huge number of donations from more than 1,000 contributors.

Meanwhile, on Twitter, I have been subjected to a near-constant barrage of lies, insults and other vilification from supporters of Ms Riley – often the same people who have also falsely accused me of anti-Semitism in the past.

This one turned up after another Twitter user posted a list of fellow socialists – including Yr Obdt Srvt – calling for others to support us. He/she claimed that one of us was a Holocaust denier so I called it out as a troll:

Notice the lack of any evidence in support of the claims and the threat to report the original tweeter to the Labour Party – which has proved sadly supine in complying with the wishes of these hatemongers.

This one turned its focus on me, repeating false claims of anti-Semitism and claiming I was a misogynist – I have no idea if this anonymous person is male or female – before turning its attention to the Riley libel case.

Let us be clear about this: Nobody supporting my CrowdJustice campaign will have to pay any more than their initial donation, even in the remote possibility that I lose.

This is nothing but scaremongering, based on unproved speculation.

But now I have a question:

How do you feel about this attempt to manipulate you?

This is a person who has tried to mislead you and others like you who may otherwise want to support my CrowdJustice campaign, trying to help Ms Riley by making me unable to fund my defence.

I think that’s despicable, don’t you?

If you do, then please make your disgust count by contributing to the campaign. Libel cases are notoriously expensive and I need more funds if I’m to mount a successful defence.

You could email five of your friends, asking them to pledge to this CrowdJustice site. The address is https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/

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 if you can afford it, please consider pledging some cash yourself.

Money is no object to my opponents; they are trying to use their wealth to buy the result they want.

I think that is a deplorable abuse of the justice system.

I hope you do too.

Please come to the CrowdJustice page and help defeat them. It only takes a donation.

PS. Here’s some extra reassurance:

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.

This phase of Mike’s anti-libel crowdfunding ends soon. Donate now!

It seems my CrowdJustice site, that has been running for the last few months, is finally set to close.

With it ends the first phase of my campaign to raise cash to pay the legal eagles I need to beat the false claims against me – in or out of court.

The initial aim was to demonstrate to Rachel Riley, Tracy Ann Oberman and their solicitors that there was no truth in their claim that I had libelled them, and that there was no point in trying to take it to court.

This has fallen on deaf ears.

So the next phase will concentrate on ensuring we have enough cash to go into court and mount a defence that will convince a judge that my accusers don’t have a leg to stand on.

We have almost enough to pay for a preliminary hearing, which may take place in the autumn. I won’t know whether further hearings will take place until we get a ruling from the judge.

So please allow me to appeal, one last time, to your generosity. If you would like to help me win:

Email five of your friends, asking them to pledge to this CrowdJustice site. The address is https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/

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 if you can afford it, please consider pledging some cash yourself.

Money isn’t an issue for my opponents. They are trying to use my lack of it to bully me into giving up – in effect, to buy justice.

I find that attitude utterly repulsive, and I hope you do too.

So please help, while there’s time.

A nasty reminder of why I’m fighting a false libel claim

Beware of trolls: Many of the social media antagonists claiming to be fighting anti-Semitism may have an entirely different agenda. Help to discourage them by contributing to my libel defence fund.

This Writer’s fight against false libel claims by Rachel Riley isn’t just about her, but also about defending myself against her cronies who think that bullying young people  – and using vile language to intimidate anybody – is acceptable behaviour.

I’m referring to the kind of people who sent death threats to a teenage girl with anxiety issues, making her afraid to leave her house after Ms Riley referred to her in some very unwise tweets.

I was reminded of their ways earlier today, after the celebrity David Schneider tweeted concerns about a Labour Party member who had been outed as an anti-Semite by a member of an anonymous troll network closely associated with Ms Riley. I tweeted a warning that these people were not to be trusted and that, in my opinion, they were contributing to any increase in anti-Semitism by their behaviour.

Think about it: If you were subjected to a false accusation of anti-Semitism by someone, and then to bullying by that person’s followers, I think it would be enough to make you extremely unhappy with them. Add in the fact that they claim to be representing Jewish people, and it would be easy to let that… let’s call it disgruntlement… spill over to become a generalised unhappiness with that entire social group.

Fortunately, both I and the young lady involved have avoided that. But you can appreciate that others may not be as even-handed about it.

Inevitably, given the nature of the conversation, somebody had to take issue with me – so I gave my reasons for reacting as I had:

This led to a dialogue in which the following happened:

We may conclude that harrytaylor isn’t interested in anti-Semitism – he wants to attack Jeremy Corbyn – and Chris Williamson – with false accusations.

And I know I don’t have to explain to anybody here that (((Fightingb4ck)))’s tweet was entirely false (although the inclusion of the link to my CrowdJustice appeal was welcome and I hope people used it to donate).

The trouble is, it’s an attempt to harm me and my credibility with lies.

Another anonymous troll also leapt in, tweeting “I don’t know why you debate with that racist scumbag Sivier – racist c**** like him deserve just one kind of message. He is the most vile kind of BNP racist.”

I suppose it’s a relief that this person self-censored the ‘C’-word. If I were someone who didn’t have a website, they probably wouldn’t.

This is the treatment dealt out to people like myself and others who support justice based on fact: evidence-free abuse.

I wonder if Ms Riley is proud of her supporters?

It all reminds me of the reasons I must fight her – and their – false claims. But I still need help to do it so I’m taking this opportunity to renew my appeal.

If you are willing to help me defeat the liars, you are invited to do one, some, or all of the following:

Email five of your friends, asking them to pledge to this CrowdJustice site. The address is https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/

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 if you can afford it, please consider pledging some cash yourself.

It seems clear to me that these people aren’t fighting against anti-Semitism; they’re simply trying to upset people who support the current Labour leadership for political reasons of their own.

A court win might give them reason to reconsider their behaviour – but I can’t make that happen without your help.

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.

Help fund Chris Williamson’s legal case against Labour

Chris Williamson.

This may seem counter-productive as I am currently crowd-funding for a court case I have to fight later this year – but we need to stand together.

Chris Williamson MP’s membership of the Labour Party has been re-suspended over accusations of anti-Semitism, in a move that he claims breaches party rules.

The trumped-up claim against him is very similar to the nonsense that was said about a teenage girl by Rachel Riley, about which I wrote an article that induced Ms Riley to sue me for libel.

I don’t take kindly to false accusations. They bring British justice into disrepute – whether in court or in organisations like Labour.

So I’m calling on supporters of Vox Political to help Mr Williamson out – as many of you have helped me. You can read the details of his planned action by clicking on the link in this tweet:

As for my own crowdfunder…

I expected matters to go quiet over the summer, and they have – although there seems to have been an attempt by Ms Riley’s lawyers to engage mine in a dialogue about the meaning of my article and whether parts of it were based on fact or opinion.

As my representatives tried to discuss these matters with them but heard nothing for two months until they filed proceedings with the court, I consider this to be an attempt to waste my money on costly legal letters.

It’s the kind of trick we can expect from people who try to use wealth to buy justice.

If you don’t like the idea of tactics like that, please join your contribution to my CrowdJustice campaign; I need a lot more cash to mount a really strong defence.

Here are the details:

If you haven’t done so already, please email five of your friends, asking them to pledge to this case. If you have, please email five more.

You could also post a link to Facebook, asking your friends to pledge. The address is https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/

If you’re on Twitter, you could tweet in support, quoting the address of the appeal.

And if you can afford it, please consider pledging some more cash yourself.

Thanks sent to Rachel Riley after she inadvertently saved The Canary

All in good time: This image isn’t quite appropriate as, really, only around two seconds should be shown to have elapsed, to accurately depict the amount of time it took The Canary to reach its target.

The irony is strong in this one.

You may remember an article on This Site last Sunday (August 4), stating that a shady organisation calling itself “Stop Funding Fake News” had persuaded enough advertisers to boycott The Canary that editor-in-chief Kerry-Anne Mendoza had been forced to seek an alternative way of financing the site.

(In fact, it seems this was an oversimplification. Changes to Google and Facebook algorhythms had cut traffic to the site and advertising income was falling, along with the attack by people who opposed the site’s politics.)

Ms Mendoza had appealed for 1,000 people to take out subscriptions to the site within six months, in order to keep the left-wing news site going.

Rachel Riley had issued a tweet rejoicing at what she considered to be the imminent demise of the site, and reader-response was enormous.

That’s right – The Canary reached its target of 1,000 new subscribers after only two weeks:

This is a huge victory for the free left-wing social media and many of us have been celebrating:

https://twitter.com/MattTurner4L/status/1159147753919922177

And while some have considered it appropriate to send condolences to Ms Riley…

… This Writer thinks it more appropriate to thank her for her contribution, without which it may have taken The Canary much longer to reach its target.

Thank you, Ms Riley! You are a great supporter of the New Left Media!

Many others have thanked her via Twitter already.

Seriously, though, Ms Riley’s attempts to stifle independent news and commentary don’t end there. As many readers know, she is currently suing me for libel and the case will go to court later this year.

I have been campaigning to raise funds to fight the allegation, on the CrowdJustice website, and this battle is still ongoing.

So, if you’re not familiar with the details, please visit https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/ and find out what the fuss is about.

Then please email five of your friends, asking them to pledge to this case. If you have, please email five more.

You could also post a link to Facebook, asking your friends to pledge. The address is https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/

If you’re on Twitter, you could tweet in support, quoting the address of the appeal.

And if you can afford it, please consider pledging some cash yourself.

Be part of the backlash against the bullies.

CrowdJustice has extended Mike’s libel fight AGAIN!

This is terrific news!

CrowdJustice has extended the campaign to raise funds for me to fight the false libel accusations by Rachel Riley and Tracy Ann Oberman. It will run for another month.

This means you can continue adding funds to the campaign throughout the summer and I can continue raising awareness about the issue, and carry on informing you about the latest developments.

I had no idea CrowdJustice was going to do this. I am delighted that the site’s organisers have considered this campaign worthy of extension.

If you meet anybody who doesn’t understand why I need the funds to get my case into court and defeat the libel action brought by Ms Riley, please direct them to her Twitter account – and also to Tracy Ann Oberman’s.

Their behaviour on that platform should provide all the information anybody of good conscience really needs.

My campaign is still a few thousand pounds short of what we might call a comfort zone, so I still need you to help me out – if you’re willing.

If you haven’t done so already, please email five of your friends, asking them to pledge to this case. If you have, please email five more.

You could also post a link to Facebook, asking your friends to pledge. The address is https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/

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 if you can afford it, please consider pledging some more cash yourself.

This campaign will now continue to run throughout the summer. Let’s keep it going strong!

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.

This man is terminally ill – but is backing Mike’s libel fight. Have you done the same?

This contribution to my CrowdJustice campaign to fight false claims of libel by Rachel Riley absolutely staggered me:

“I have a terminal illness and wish to do my bit. I hope that the case is resolved before the inevitable so I see the smirk wiped off Ms Riley’s face.”

What a stunning example to set – and right at the end of this phase of the fundraising campaign.

The bad news is that the current crowdfunding campaign will end on July 30. I’m hoping it will have raised £32,000 by the end.

At the moment, more than 1,150 people have contributed an average of £20 each to raise more than £31,700. I definitely think we can hit that final target.

Here’s how we hit it:

If you haven’t done so already, please email five of your friends, asking them to pledge to this case. If you have, please email five more.

You could also post a link to Facebook, asking your friends to pledge. The address is https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/mike-sivier-libel-fight/

If you’re on Twitter, you could tweet in support, quoting the address of the appeal.

And if you can afford it, please consider pledging some more cash yourself.

Next time, I’ll discuss the next steps.
