Deranged Boris hater and TV celebrity Emma Kennedy is probably best known to the political world for her relentless tweeting. Her conspiracy-laden speculation as to why Boris was missing PMQs yesterday was, along with Alastair Campbell’s unhinged rant that Boris should have prioritised PMQs over the birth of his son, the subject of a Dan Wooton monologue on TalkRADIO yesterday. Emma was not happy…
As well as submitting a formal complaint to the station, the former Celebrity MasterChef winner demanded the ‘defamatory’ video was taken down, claimed the “matter will be taken further” and took to reminding everyone that she “used to be a lawyer.” Read the full bitch fight here:
I have made an urgent complaint to your station and you should be aware that re-publishing this is also an act of defamation.— Emma Kennedy (@EmmaKennedy) April 30, 2020
Please delete and issue an apology.
OK. Matter will be taken further.— Emma Kennedy (@EmmaKennedy) April 30, 2020
Oh don’t worry. I am doing. Someone’s forgotten I used to be a lawyer.— Emma Kennedy (@EmmaKennedy) April 30, 2020
Thanks. I’ll be adding that to the complaint.— Emma Kennedy (@EmmaKennedy) April 30, 2020
Guido looks forward to seeing this one develop…
UPDATED: In various tweets last night Emma Kennedy said she had consulted libel lawyers Carter-Ruck and, drum roll…
I’m not pursuing it because Dan Wootton doesn’t deserve 3p spent on him. And I don’t need to spend 3 grand on a letter telling him he’s a misleading, malicious twat. He can have that for free. When I was a lawyer I used to advise people never to sue unless they were prepared to think about the person they were suing every day for 18 months. Readers, he’s not fucking worth it.
More importantly, Guido suspects, is she would have lost the case and a lot of money.
