Just to make you aware of a few things that have happened.
On 24th May I received an email from the Daily Mirror, they asked
Hi Richard, I’m a reporter for the Daily Mirror.
I’m doing an article based on your newsletter sent out on May 9. I’ve
copied the contents below.
It’s focusing in on you asking followers for legal recommendations.
If you wish to respond at all or give any update, deadline is 7pm today.
I did not reply. The following day they published this hit piece,
The article states, ” He’s set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds for his
legal defence, raising over �15,000 already. ”
Not long after this was published, Gofundme removed my account. I did not
lose much money because I was having the money transferred to my account
If you wish to donate, I would prefer a BACS transfer. Details can be found
I am so grateful to everyone who has so far donated, it is a massive help.
Some of it has already been put to good use in preparing the defence.
I am due to submit my initial written defence within the next few days.
I will update further as things transpire.
Thanks again for your continued support,
