My name is Mike Sivier. You may know me as the writer of the Vox Political website.

I am probably best-known as the man who forced the Conservative government to reveal the number of sick and disabled benefit claimants who had lost their lives after being denied benefit, after a two-year campaign.

In 2017, immediately before local government elections in which I was standing as a Labour candidate, an organisation calling itself the Campaign Against Antisemitism published an article falsely alleging anti-Semitism by me. I believe the intention was to corruptly spoil my chance of being elected.

The piece 'quotemined' investigative articles I had written about claims of anti-Semitism against Labour Party politicians, using only those words that could present the most prejudicial impression about me, in order to falsely suggest hatred of the Jewish people. A weblink to the article was then sent to the Labour Party, in an attempt to have my membership suspended. This led to newspaper articles including one in which my local Conservative MP libelled me.

Labour obligingly suspended my membership, and subsequently launched a one-sided investigation in which I was found guilty despite being absent from the proceedings, at which none of the evidence I had presented to the party was mentioned by the investigator.

A copy of the report to the Labour Party committee that heard my case was then handed to a member of the national press. This led to further newspaper articles claiming I was not only an anti-Semite but also a Holocaust denier (an innovation by the Labour Party investigator).

I have been trying to persuade all those involved to retract their unfounded claims and apologise. These lies have harmed my main business - the Vox Political website - by encouraging readers to believe I should be avoided because of the unacceptable views they have attributed to me.

My attempts seem unlikely to produce positive results so it seems I must resort to court action.

I need your support to fund the court campaign to clear my name.

Please support this case and share. As a Labour Party member, I believe in equal opportunities for all people, no matter the colour of their skin, their religion or ethnic background, or any other accident of birth. My campaign to force the Tory government to release its sickness and disability death figures was an example of my commitment to end discrimination, prejudice and hate based on such characteristics.

    The Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) has ruled that MailOnline was wrong to publish claims that I was a Holocaust denier. This is important because it undermines all the other accusations against me. Please read about the case by following the link below, and share it with your friends to encourage them to support my fundraising campaign.

    Okay, we took a little time getting to this because I was busy helping to organise a little cultural festival here in Mid Wales (HUGE success, by the way), and then had to spend a few days recovering from it. But we're here at last! One-tenth of our goal achieved! Onwards and upwards!

    Never mind the image - the milestone is that, as I was typing the last update, the campaign received its 100th donation! It was for £2 - which was brilliant as far as I'm concerned. It shows that people are giving as much as they can, and that's all I can ask. Please keep sharing. Let's get the message out, get the money in, and get something done to stop this injustice.
