The Discovery of Undisclosed Connections with Boris Johnson and the Judges who threw out the prosecution against him for lying in public office

Please find below the e-mail I have received from Marcus Ball which reveals very disquieting information regarding the two Judges who threw out the case against Boris Johnson. If you thought it was just the Old Etonians sticking together, please read this.

Boris Johnson prosecution JCIO complaint

Dear backers,

You may remember that shortly after our prosecution case was shut down, I sent out a video telling you all that I felt that something was wrong, that something had happened behind the scenes. After a lot of hard work, I believe I have discovered what was hidden from us. Never say I don’t work hard for us :slight_smile: I don’t give up and I keep going. Only a fighter could do this job and that’s what you’ve got.

Hard core backers can read the full complaint right here:

These are the basics:

In early 2019 our crowdfunded, private criminal prosecution case against ex-Mayor of London Boris Johnson was approved by Westminster Magistrates’ Court for a criminal trial. But it was then suddenly shut down by Judges Supperstone and Rafferty at the High Court before it could get in front of a jury.

Judges are legally required to disclose connections they have with people in court that may lead to an appearance of bias or a lack of impartiality. Neither judge disclosed any issues at any point. I was made suspicious by their conduct on his case, so I spent 3 months investigating them. This is what I have discovered:

Discovery 1:

Judge Supperstone, who shut down the case against ex-Mayor of London Boris Johnson, used to be one of ex-Mayor of London Boris Johnson’s lawyers but never told anyone. Neither did Boris Johnson. I have found proof of a payment of £35,500 from Mayor Boris Johnson’s GLA accounts to Mr Supperstone QC in 2008 that Judge Supperstone has not disclosed at any point. The full extent of their relationship is not yet known.

Discovery 2.

Judge Supperstone has been a member of the secretive, exclusive, men’s only private members club, The Garrick, since 1987. According to a list confidentially shown to me, Boris Johnson’s father, Stanley Johnson, has been a member of this same club since 2008. Jacob Rees Mogg has been a member since 2004 and Michael Gove since 2002. What this means is that if Judge Supperstone had ruled against Johnson in this serious criminal case he would have been ruling against activities that several fellow members of his social club had also carried out, potentially making his time there very uncomfortable. The husband of Judge Rafferty, Brian Barker, is also a member of this very same club. Again, no mention of this was made to the court. Concealing this information is not a good look for our judiciary and screams of the old boys’ networks so despised by the public.

Discovery 3.

In 2016 Judge Rafferty’s household received a financial benefit of £848 a day by way of her husband who was given a top government job by Theresa Villiers MP. Theresa Villiers MP has also endorsed the allegedly false public spending claims that Boris Johnson is accused of within this prosecution case. Meaning that if Judge Rafferty had ruled against Boris Johnson, she would also be ruling against activities that a key professional ally of her husband, who has financially benefitted her own family, had also carried out. She did not disclose this at any point.

Discovery 4.

Within their written court ruling against the case, both judges ruled that our team had shown them no legal authorities which equated the offence Boris Johnson is accused of with bringing his office into ‘disrepute’. But their ruling then went on to reference two legal authorities that our team had shown them which do equate the offence with disrepute. In short, I believe that both judges were being dishonest within their own legal ruling on a case which existed to challenge dishonest behaviour.

What’s the plan now?

I have asked the JCIO to consider our complaint against these judges. If they rule in our favour it is possible that they could be recused from our case. This would then mean that our case would need to be heard again, by different judges.

How can you help?

I need you all to start being more vocal and visible on this work online and in social media. Powerful and wealthy people I’ve been in contact with are too scared to associate themselves with us despite hoping that we’ll be successful. We need to become a normal people movement instead which communicates the values behind our work so that everyone understands what we’re about and why we’re doing this.

In short: we want to set a precedent against lying in politics. The good thing about the election result was that everybody will now understand that our case isn’t about stopping Brexit, it’s so clearly going to happen now that it’s no longer an issue. Our case was always legally incapable of stopping Brexit.

The obvious issue is financial. I am currently in approximately £340,000 of debt and I decided I wouldn’t ask you for help with that the moment I was told that the case was dead. But now, I’ve uncovered all of this. I have faith that this case can and should be heard again. I am going to crowdfund again to get out of debt and top of things again.

However, the costs of this case are becoming too great. I am considering no longer using paid legal representation and instead representing myself in court. Nobody knows the case better than me and I’ve been speaking in public extensively over the last decade. We can’t afford to hire lawyers full time on the case, but only someone who is on it full time should speak.

My question for you:

Will you continue to financially support me to help me get out of debt and hopefully get this back into court? If so, this crowdfund page should be live by end of day Thursday 19th:

Will you be more vocal and visible online in support of our work and in defence of me? I am taking a lot of flack and I need you at my back.

Let me know,

Marcus J ball

Financial Spending Reports(Stop Lying In Politics Ltd.):

Original detailed report

Company Accounts 1st year and a half

Company Accounts 2nd year

Polite note to journalists:

I have stopped publishing completely detailed spending reports because I don’t have enough time at present to produce them and handle everything else(no admin team). I am also not encouraged to do so when tabloid journalists abuse them to falsely claim that I’ve spent £50,000 on cupcakes and self defence classes. Cut the sh#t please! :slight_smile:

This really isnt anything new, If the judges dont belong to the little pinefore club then they belong to the little finger handshake society. All old boys and girls scratching each others bits or backs.

Just remember

It’s not what you know.

It’s not who you know (but it helps to know the right people).

It’s what you know about who you know that really counts.
