Six months of crowdfunded #OpenJustice work

29 Oct 2018 - 1 Comment

At the start of May I blogged about how I’d asked the kind souls who live on the internet to support me with my Open Justice work. I asked for help and you replied, with your cash and your words of support, and for that I’m still so very grateful. I wrote an update of […]

Profound injustice #LEDER #FestABLE

Anyone who has seen me, spoken to me, or tweeted with me since the interim LEDER report was published has had to listen to me raging about the utterly demoralising contents.

Crowdsourced #OpenJustice Work Month 1

01 May 2018 - 2 Comments

Just over a month ago I took the plunge and asked the twittersphere if they’d pay me a £1 a month (or any amount greater than that) to support my Open Justice work, live tweeting inquests and other court cases and tribunals.
