Thinking of suing me?

If I’ve written something about you on this blog that has you reaching for your lawyer’s telephone number in the hope of scaring me into silence with legal threats – please don’t bother.

UK libel laws are a joke. They exist simply in order to allow people with the most money to tell people with less money than they have to shut the f*ck up.

During the few years I have been writing this blog, I have already been threatened with libel more times than I can be bothered to count. I can assure you I have never once backed down and nobody has so far actually taken the next step and proceeded with any legal action against me or this site.

Therefore, please save yourself some hefty legal fees and only threaten me with libel if you’re prepared to go the whole way and actually take me to court. Because I promise you, you won’t shut me up and I’m not the backing down type.

That said – as a supporter of free speech I am more than happy to allow anyone who feels unfairly treated on this blog to have a full right to reply.

So if you would like the chance to refute something I’ve written about you, please feel free to put pen to paper and use logic, sound argument and reason to argue your case and I will happily publish your comments in full in a blogpost, no matter how critical of me they might be.

But threaten me with lawyers, and you can go f*ck yourself.
