APRIL 6TH 2021

Hello –

As many know, I have temporarily pulled back from my journalistic and broadcasting work.

This is primarily for two reasons:

1.     Because I am currently being sued by two men (including an ex-MP) and I am suing three men for harassment (the ex-MP on a counterclaim with two associates included) and I need time to prepare.

2.     Because of the stress caused to my health.

This post is not about the current cases because they are live proceedings and I do not wish to harm that in any way. 

I want to proceed to full trial so the truth may be heard.

This page is about reaching out to protect myself and the work I do in the long term. 

It is about establishing a Fighting Fund to protect and defend me over the coming years.

I have to be careful what I write, but it is a fact that some of my enemies - and I have quite a few these days - are relentlessly targeting me. I am watched 24-7. This is not an exaggeration but a frightening reality.

It is scary and creepy and the police are failing to protect me from those who have expressed an intention to cause harm to me.

Even with evidence I have been left vulnerable and forced to protect myself.

The facts behind these words will become evident over the coming weeks and months.

If you feel inclined to contribute, please do so here. Any amount helps and is appreciated.

DESPERATION TO HARM ME

More of what has been going on...

It is not just the police I am repeatedly reported to, but to private individuals and their advisors. 

A number of complaints have been sent to Carter Ruck, for one example.

Carter Ruck, for those who don’t know, is the powerful UK libel lawyers who famously represent Kate and Gerry McCann.

My enemies work hard contacting anyone they feel may have an interest in suing and pursuing me at home and abroad. 

They contact my livestream guests and smear me with the aim of having people pull out. 

They contact people who have hired me and they lie and threaten them into dropping me.

The desperation to harm me - and in a multitude of ways - is obvious to all who have come back to tell me what has happened behind my back. It has gone on for too long and it must stop. I am now prepared to fully fight back.

It has been an onslaught - mental, emotional and physical - but I am still here.

BRAND NEW TUBE

I have been supported throughout the current legal challenge by the remarkable people at Brand New Tube, I am overwhelmed by what they have done for me. I have worked with them for less than a year but they have shown more loyalty than companies I have worked with for a decade.

BNT is a young, British-based video sharing platform that was launched in May 2020 with the express aim of giving a voice to those who were denied such by Big Tech - and particularly by the totalitarian You Tube.

BNT launched and the development was underway when they approached me to co-host a weekly livestream – and then it all kicked off.

Some of my enemies - aware that I had found a new platform - targeted BNT, too.

In the last few months BNT have been to hell and back.

All of it will come out in due course.

BNT is made up of individuals who have put themselves on the line.

I can’t thank them enough. They have proven to be unique in the cutthroat media world I inhabit.

They are unusual in this and the platform must be protected.

THE RAW REPORT

I am proud of The Raw Report – our Friday night livestream on Brand New Tube.

We have just completed the second series and the buzz grows week on week.

Our guests are engaging, varied and come from all walks of life from Hollywood actors to activists campaigning to protect brutalised young people. It’s about people who put their heads above parapets. Regardless of the personal cost.

I believe there is nothing out there like it and we will continue to develop it – despite obstacles aimed to stop us.

We will return for a third series shortly.

MAINSTREAM MEDIA

For three decades I have been on television and radio but, as I became increasingly questioning of mainstream agendas and narratives, I have found myself at odds with those who run mainstream media.

To stay in mainstream media you must not rock the boat. You must conform regardless. I can’t do that. I was made to rock boats. Besides, staying in mainstream media is not my goal – telling the truth is.

The type of journalism I do is not a money spinner. I’ve not grown rich from this and neither do I desire to. 

I’m not in this for the money or for popularity or social media likes. My work means something to me. 

I do not create clickbait content or seek to glorify survivors of sex abuse or to make money off the back of misery.

I do my work because I hope to even up the odds for people who routinely do not have a voice.

But it is my lack of funds to defend myself that my growing list of enemies hope will deny me justice. 

I will fight tooth and nail not to fall into that trap.

In 2021 telling the truth as a journalist is an occupational hazard that many now choose to avoid. Not me. I can’t.

I am proud to have stuck my neck out over the years about many topics including the contaminated blood scandal, cruel welfare reforms, dismantling of the NHS, establishment corruption, child abuse.

And, as many know, I have also been prepared to challenge the big stories be that the disappearance of Madeleine McCann or investigating the rumours of paedophiles within the British Establishment.

(Which, while I’m on it, please seek out and download my documentaries before they are subject to further attack and possible deletion. There is an ongoing campaign to close my You Tube channel which contains them.

Most notably ‘The McCanns and the Police’, ‘Madeleine McCann: Public Relations & Saving Reputations’, ‘Paedophiles in Parliament 2018’, ‘Drag Queen Story Hour: Child Grooming in Plain Sight?’, ‘UK Politics: Did a Paedophile Influence Children’s Policies?’ ‘The Business of Cancer’ and more).

People sometimes say to me “I don’t agree with you on everything, but I agree with you about this.”

Whatever ‘this’ is, it’s enough. We don’t have to agree on everything; indeed it would be slightly creepy if we did, but as long as we agree on the important things then that’s enough.

Sometimes I make errors, I’m human but I am quick to clear them up when there is proof that I am wrong. Unfortunately, others seek to punish me in disproportionate ways and to manipulate circumstances to do so.

A FIGHTING FUND

I have found myself in a place where multiple things are happening and are designed to harm and distress me.

The extent of behind-the-scenes manipulations mean that not only would I be unable to carry on my journalistic work but my word would count for little. Just as some want it.

Yes there really are people out there, some in powerful organisations, who want to silence and discredit me. 

And you know why? Because my reputation is too good for their liking. They fear that people listen to me.

The reality is my life and work have become hazardous and I need an ongoing fighting fund just to survive it.

It’s not in my nature to ask for help, I am particularly bad at it. But needs must.

I worry about the implications of public contributions knowing my enemies will try to use it against me, but I can’t care what people who want to harm me think given that their stated aims are to bankrupt me, see me imprisoned and destroy my good reputation.

The reality is I’ve reached a place where I have no alternative.

As my name has become more synonymous with fighting against injustices, my enemies have become more powerful and embedded within the British Establishment. Not all. Some are merely foot soldiers, but dangerous and meddling ones.

This is where you may come in...

What I am facing is not a fight I can take on alone, I need to reach out to those who value what I do.

This is a request in two parts.

1.     A Fighting Fund

2.     Your Words of Support

This Fighting Fund started because a very kind supporter emailed me and insisted I give her my account details so she could contribute to my legal fees. I was reluctant. Nonetheless, I admitted to her I needed help and she generously did just that.

It means the world to me.  But not everyone can afford to do that and neither should anyone feel any pressure to do so.

So, only contribute if:  1. You can afford to and, 2. Because you believe I deserve your support.

I will not start a Go Fund Me or anything similar because my enemies will fight to close it down, this is the reality.

Above you will find a link to my bank account (preferable) and PayPal account.

Which brings me to Point 2. Your Words of Support

Over the years I have received a significant volume of correspondence from people who have thanked me for covering their story, for helping them to better understand a situation they have found themselves in, or in shedding light on issues they seek to know more about.

I need people to do that now. I am here reaching out to you and saying if there was ever a time to protect my good name – and let it be known what I have done – it is now.

So, if you have a nice word to say about me and would be prepared for me to present as a series of statements (when needed) please do so and send to soniapoulton@sky.com

FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL

This is a fight for my survival and I will do everything I can.

Yes, it’s that serious.

I'm sorry to be so vague about what is happening but it will soon become apparent why the need to be careful.

This is unprecedented for me but then unprecedented times require unprecedented measures.

I am under no illusion that 2021 is the year that ‘they’ have come for me. And I need help.

I am prepared to break the habit of a lifetime to reach out for it.

Thank you.
