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.
Keith Vaz is very unhappy with the Daily Mail’s Andrew Pierce over an article published last week in which Pierce reported Vaz had paid rent boys for their services. Vaz has instructed £500-an-hour Carter Ruck to insist he has “never had ‘sex’ with any ‘rent boys'”.
We have been contacted by Carter-Ruck on behalf of Keith Vaz in connection with an article in the Daily Mail dated 8 February 2017, pages 6 and 7, headed “How the king of the freebies splashes your cash” and on Mail Online headed “Chauffeur-driven cars, taxpayer-funded suits and hospitality at the tennis and Arsenal matches: How the king of freebies John Bercow splashes your cash”
Carter-Ruck say their client has never ‘paid rent boys for sex’ and never had ‘sex’ with any ‘rent boys’. They also say there was never a Police investigation in relation to this.
Vaz told the rent boys in the Sunday Mirror sting “Try and pick up some poppers” and asked “How will this work, do you want me to f*** him first or all together”. Reportedly talking about an encounter with another escort, Vaz said “He was OK. He forgot the condom though. I had to f*** him without a condom”. Yet “Carter-Ruck say their client has never ‘paid rent boys for sex’ and never had ‘sex’ with any ‘rent boys'”. What about Jim the washing machine salesman?
