I urge you to join me in support of a free press: #BoycottLego and Buy The Daily Mail

Two years ago as I exposed Quindell, the biggest stockmarket fraud for 30 years, supporters of that company ran an organised campaign to get companies not to advertise on websites I ran - this one and ShareProphets.com. It is very easy to persuade companies that you speak for many if you are organised and vociferous and so British Airways, Waitrose, Hargreaves Lansdown and others told Google not to run their ads on our websites. Those backing the fraud, who also sent death threats while the company's expensive lawyers sent fascist lawyers letters threatening me with ruin, were more organised and vociferous than I could be and so they struck a blow against a free press.  That was a blow on behalf of criminals.

Today we learn that a group called Stop Funding Hate has bullied Lego into not advertising with the Daily Mail. The left hates the Mail for many things but its latest crime, which prompted the decision, was its coverage of the judicial review of the Article 50 vote. The Mail suggested that the judges are the enemies of the people which you may or may not agree with but this is apparently something you cannot be allowed to say.

And thus we are meant to live in a world where unelected judges can make decisions on matters of importance to all of us and the press is either not allowed to criticise them at all or can only do so in ways that the liberal left deem to be acceptable. What a terrifying world this is.

I do not buy the Daily Mail. Since I disagree with vast amounts of the crap it spews I am not sure that I can bring myself to become a regular purchaser but I shall make a symbolic gesture and buy the Mail on Sunday today. And I shall click on one advert on the online edition each day going forward as a statement of my support.

Meanwhile Lego can go fuck itself... my son Joshua will not be given any of its bricks ever.

I hope others follow suit and #BoycottLego now to teach the cowardly bastards a lesson. A free press is something to be fought for on a universal basis not a selective one.
