Alison Chabloz

The persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz has just blogged about her upcoming appeal:

https://alisonchabloz.com/2020/01/08/a-pound-of-flesh-just-in-time-for-shabbat/#more-7941

Alison will be at Derby Crown Court on Friday, should anyone be able to support her.

As a former barrister (disbarred 8-9 years after I ceased practice and by reason of a Jew-Zionist complaint against me by a pro-Israel cabal: see https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/07/09/the-slide-of-the-english-bar-and-uk-society-continues-and-accelerates/), I am aware that the moral support given to an accused even by one or two people is worth much.

These are the Court details:

Random thought

Saw this blog:

https://hippie-inheels.com/how-living-in-goa-changed-me/

I have never been there. I doubt that I would like it much.

I have lived in a number of countries in my life, from my own land, the UK (much of my life from 1956 to 2020); Australia (<3 years aged 10-13 in the late 1960s); USA (about 2 years within the years 1989-1993 in New Jersey and New York City, and then, much later, shorter business and personal trips to South Carolina and Florida); France (4 years but commuting every couple of weeks to the UK); Kazakhstan (one year, 1996-1997); Rhodesia (part of 1977); Turkey (a few months), Egypt (a few months), the Eastern Caribbean (a few months). Shorter visits and holidays etc have been many and varied, from Moscow to Cayman, Liechtenstein to Alderney, Tunisia to Poland (where I spent a total of, probably, about 3 months in the late 1980s), North Cyprus to Qatar, among many others.

Now? I am too European —and maybe too advanced in years now— to live in countries controlled by non-Europeans (and to tolerate their dirt and disorganization).

Harry and the Royal Mulatta

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/jan/08/prince-harry-and-meghan-say-they-are-stepping-back-from-royal-family

Well, seems that those who said that the thick princeling would end up being taken to Hollywood were not wide of the mark…

That pair have become mere “celebrities” in a milieu where it sometimes seems that everyone and his dog is a “celebrity”. Even the Jew-Zionist lawyer, Mark Lewis, and his “she-once-read-Sky-News” second wife (the marriage lasted nearly a year) were posing as “celebrities” about 6 years ago. Now Caroline Feraday is a single mother (no, not Lewis, apparently), and is living in a small house in an obscure Californian suburb, and working in an office, while Lewis himself, now living in Israel, was found to have sent a number of people obscene or offensive messages while, it was said in his defence (!), almost doolally on prescription drugs. Censured and fined by the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal in 2018, he was let off a heavier fine because having been, in effect, sacked by his law firm, the Tribunal heard that his only assets were his vulgar clothes, a pension worth £70 a week and a mobility scooter! Even his car was provided by the DWP, via the Motability scheme! The “top libel lawyer”…

Beware the “celebrities”…

Jess Phillips

A couple of things today re. uncultured loudmouth Jess Phillips, who thinks that she could be a prime minister! In the American vernacular, JESUS H. CHRIST!

Jess Phillips is a real freeloader even compared to most MPs:

The other thing is that I have still not been able to prove that Jess Phillips is maybe part-Jew or has some familial Jewish connection, which I have long suspected; but I notice that the Twitter Jew-Zionist cabal seem to favour her and, only today, I saw some System talking head tweeting about how it was “antisemitic” to oppose Jess Phillips. “The shark can scent blood a mile away when he is hungry…” [Control in The Spy Who Came In From The Cold]

On the stupidity front…

Ha ha! Oh, yes, the voters of Redcar voted to support the Jews! That’s plausible (not)…

Anna Turley was known as completely pro-Israel etc, so why did the Redcar voters not support her and vote for her and so, via her, the Jews? (though I concede that it may just be that the Redcar electorate is composed of badly-educated plebs easily fooled by the Sun “newspaper”. I have never been there, so cannot say).

Still, good riddance!

TV ads

I have blogged about this before, but it has now gone way beyond a joke when almost every single TV ad has to have a mixed-race couple (usually black man with white and often blonde woman) and usually mixed-race offspring. In fact, the situation now is worse even than it was when I blogged about that. It’s plainly a conspiracy, a kind of social engineering aimed at children and the young generally. Normalizing such liaisons.

Self-Publicizing Supposed “Top Lawyer” Mark Lewis: Full Transcript of Disciplinary Hearing Judgment Now Released by Tribunal

Full transcript of the judgment in the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal hearing

http://www.solicitorstribunal.org.uk/sites/default/files-sdt/11856.2018.Lewis_.pdf

Background

Regular readers of this blog will have noticed that I have recently blogged several times (see Previous Blog Posts on Mark Lewis, below) about one-time supposed “top lawyer” Mark Lewis (supposed to be such at least by an uncritical Zionist-influenced msm). The Jew-Zionist solicitor has now emigrated to Israel. His years of self-publicizing and abusive behaviour have finally resulted in his being brought to justice: he has been found guilty on charges brought by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority (though the sentence was far too lenient). No matter. He has finally been brought into a measure of well-merited disgrace; at least some —a very small percentage of— his abusive activity has been recognized officially and he has been, so to speak, branded or tattooed accordingly.

He will almost certainly not now practise law again. In England and Wales, a solicitor engaged in UK-centred work has to be either a partner or other member of a firm of solicitors (or the legal department of a company, government office etc), or must be approved and properly regulated as a sole practitioner. Lewis is neither, and has already stated that he will not be seeking Admission to the Bar of Israel. There are also other factors here.

In my opinion, the story spun by Lewis and promoted (and/or not challenged) by his friends in the UK Jewish Zionist lobby including those in the Press and on TV, is largely a construct. I don’t just mean about his abusive social media presence, but his “back-story” in general.

Lewis was brought up in Manchester. A recent documentary about him (covering his medical treatment in Israel etc) interviewed some old woman one-time neighbour who had helped him much when he was young. She said that Lewis’s father had abused him as a child, physically. Was that when he himself became an obstreperous bullying lout?

Later, Lewis attended what was then Middlesex Polytechnic, rather than Oxford, Cambridge, any London university college or even the University of Manchester. The reason is unclear. Maybe he was not so good academically, maybe he had other reasons; as a fair judge, I do not discount that possibility: I myself was offered places at Oxford, Reading and University College London, but chose, for several reasons too collateral to waste space on here, to attend a less-prestigious university (Westminster). In England, these things are sometimes given undue weight. For example, the highly “successful” billionaire, Lord Ashcroft, attended what was at the time called, apparently, Mid-Essex Technical College.

Lewis commenced articles as a solicitor in 1988 but little seems to be known about his first 13 years as a solicitor (certainly I myself know nothing of it). Lewis eventually joined a firm of solicitors in Manchester as a partner, in 2001, at the age of 35. The events between then and his leaving that firm in acrimonious circumstances are opaque but it is not disputed that by or about 2009 he was either divorced or separated from his first wife, and had left that Manchester firm. He gave a newspaper interview in 2011 in which he seemed to be saying that he had had a near nervous breakdown, during which time he had a “punk” hairstyle, dressed in like manner and (if I recall aright) had a ring through either his nose or his ear. He also drove an open-top sports car. At the age of about 44…He himself has said that his earnings in or about 2009 were only about £9,000. The Disciplinary Tribunal heard that in fact he had spent nearly a year unemployed.

“Lewis was having a crisis. “I’ve got peroxide blond hair, an earring and am wearing skinny jeans to the office because I don’t give a f**k. Everything has gone wrong. Apart from losing the house and everything else, I’ve also got MS. It’s horrendous. I could have claimed benefits, but I chose not to.” [Evening Standard interview, 2011]

Lewis added, in that same interview:

“I was devastated,” he says. “I’d been turned down for so many jobs, I’m thinking to myself, I can’t go on any more, you can only get so many knockbacks. I’m giving in and going to my flat in Israel and retire in Eilat.”

Lewis joined the small London law firm, Taylor Hampton, which over the years has had mixed reviews. Even so, Lewis was only taken on as a “consultant”, i.e. a kind of semi-freelancer working on commission. This firm handled most of the briefly-notorious “phonehacking” cases. Lewis got a retainer of £6,000 gross per month. Later, he (as before) fell out with his employer and ended up years later suing them for, as he grandly told the Press, “a seven-figure sum”, but had to settle for virtually nothing in the end. The senior partner of the firm testified, diplomatically, that he “was unsure what work Mark Lewis had been doing” on the occasions when he actually attended the office!

There is a pattern here: Lewis talking big, swaggering around in showy but cheapish clothes (such as his infamous £149 Zara orange short overcoat…), telling the Press all about what huge work he is doing, what a legal star he is etc, as in a 2013 interview with an online legal site called, perhaps not so accurately, “Superlawyers”!

“I keep getting offers for my story, which is amusing,” Lewis says. “Hollywood has started talking. I guess we will soon find out who does the story. It is rather funny to see discussions as to which actor will play me in a film.” [Superlawyers interview, 2013]

So uncritical were the interviewers that their article started with:

Don’t be surprised if a film is soon made about Mark Lewis, a media law, libel and privacy lawyer with Taylor Hampton Solicitors in London. Think All the President’s Men, except, instead of a newspaper uncovering the dirty tricks of politicians and lawyers, you’d have a lawyer helping uncover the dirty tricks of certain newspapers. Instead of the president of the United States resigning (along with collateral damage), you’d have the largest circulation newspaper in the country folding (along with collateral damage).

The interviewers were perhaps unaware that the “superlawyer” being interviewed by them lived at the time in one room (a London “bedsit”)!

Another leitmotif of “Mark Lewis Lawyer” (his one-time Twitter handle), along with big self-promoting talk, is a deflated balloon at the end. So

  • Lewis was going to sue and did sue Taylor Hampton for £1M-£2M, but ended up with little more than a kick in the rear;
  • likewise, he posed as the great libel specialist: members of the public are probably unaware that defamation is not, in actuality, a very difficult area of law intellectually (and judging purely from those of his cases I myself read about, such as the elementary “Jack Monroe”/Katie Hopkins matter, the law was straightforward and the facts simple);
  • he made up a lot of nonsense when he married Z-list one-time “celebrity” Caroline Feraday (most famous perhaps for having been sacked from her BBC Radio London job via a text message!); Lewis was, they both told their tame “journalists”, going to service his American clients from their new Hollywood home, while she had been cast in an American TV sitcom, and was also writing a book in which “several studios” were interested. Why do people make up such lies? And did Lewis actually have any American clients? Possible but doubtful. A New York Times profile mentioned three possible cases with a New York nexus. As he soon discovered, he was not permitted to offer legal services in California, being unqualified in any US state. He seems not even to have known that! Or was it all just a farrago of lies and nonsense? (the marriage soon collapsed, within about a year: I am speculating, but wondered whether the pair had not in fact unconsciously or semi-consciously conned each other, the one posing as the great celebrity lawyer and the other as the famous celebrity radio and TV presenter…);
  • as a partner at the well-known medium-sized London law firm, Seddons (from 2015), on a retainer of £10,000 a month (gross), he —as at his previous firms— stopped going to the office, in this case in April 2018, apparently following a traffic accident (I myself am rather shocked that someone in his physical and mental condition was even allowed to drive a car);
  • oh, and there of course never was a Hollywood film about Lewis and/or phonehacking. In fact, tweet threads from 2013-2014 between Lewis and American lawyers revealed not only that they suspected that he was trying to get work in California while unqualified, but that they had never previously heard of him! Phonehacking was a purely UK obsession (now superseded by technology, of course).

A further leitmotif of the Mark Lewis case, along with how credulous the msm is or was about Lewis (often calling him “renowned libel lawyer”, “foremost media lawyer” etc), has been how ready they were and still are not to print anything detrimental about him, such as reporting the recent Tribunal verdict…Guilty…

The Disciplinary Tribunal Judgment

The judgment can be read in full via the link I have provided. I have examined some of the evidence, and in at least some detail, in my previous blog posts about Lewis.

Lewis told the Tribunal that he now —in the Judgment’s summary– “had no assets…owned no house…owned no car, just his clothes and a mobility scooter which he valued at about £1,200.” Also:

He had no job. His employment was terminated by Seddons [in] September 2018.

Note that last: not “he resigned”, but “his employment was terminated by” [his employers]…

I suspect that Seddons are relieved to be shot of him. “Never went to the office after April 2018…unable to write because hand paralyzed” (because of MS) etc…all that and also violently abusive while medicated (or while not medicated, as I myself discovered around 2013!). Not exactly a welcome addition to any law firm, I should have thought. [#WashedUp…]

The Judgment continues:

The Respondent [Lewis] received a Mobility Car in lieu of Disability Living Allowance.”

He appears to have given up his contemptuous dismissal of State benefits, on display in that narcissistic 2011 interview…yes, you cannot judge others until you have walked a bit in their moccasins…

Lewis’s own Counsel asked the Tribunal to take into account the fact that “[Lewis] was someone with no means at all”…

Another point made in the Judgment is that the £10,000 costs awarded against Lewis will in all likelihood not be collected, because in hardship cases like his, the Authority does not press for them. In any case, the Judgment sums could never be collected from him now that he is in Israel permanently (supposedly). I believe that I read somewhere that the monies (over £13,000) collected on Lewis’s behalf by (mainly) Jew wellwishers on crowdfunding sites will be refunded. Possibly. Or maybe the donated monies will keep him and Mandy Gargoyle in hummus and pitta bread for a while.

I wonder if this report (below) was true? If so, someone made a pretty silly decision back in 2002 …but that was about a decade before she made an even sillier one (getting involved with “top lawyer” Lewis)

Even Jews are (again) tweeting against Lewis

[For those who are unaware, Gideon Falter is, or wants to be considered as, a leading UK-based Jew-Zionist. He has given “disputed” testimony in a number of civil and criminal matters.

Falter has not been convicted of anything (as far as I know)].

In fact, since it became known that Lewis was abusive to a Jew (rather than non-Jews only…) his support from Jews generally has largely dried up. Et tu, Brute?

Link below: Lewis tried to get money this way too! Maybe the company below would like to redesignate him now as a Great Israeli Speaker, now that he is an Israeli citizen (though he was almost incoherent the last time I saw a clip of him making a statement…)

https://www.greatbritishspeakers.co.uk/mark-lewis-media-lawyer-leveson-inquiry-speaker

Update, 21 December 2018

https://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/exclusive-judge-in-mark-lewis-case-compared-israel-to-nazis/

The Jewish lobby has managed to turn up one member of the SDT panel who was not a complete doormat for Israel, and the whole cabal is now screaming and screeching about how Lewis was unfairly judged and how the Tribunal should “reconsider” its verdict etc. The behaviour of these screeching creatures is itself likely to create “anti-Semitism”!

I am wondering what the “claque” wants. After all, Lewis was not struck off the roll (as he surely would have been, decades ago…), nor even suspended. The fine was small and covered by crowdfunding. As for the costs (also crowdfunded), they will not be pressed anyway.

So what this clamour is for is to make some kind of Jewish Zionist propaganda point. Lewis will still be unemployed and unemployable even if the SDT verdict and sentence is overturned (it will not be). Lewis will still be perambulating along the Corniche (or whatever it is called) in Tel Aviv, whether on his mobility scooter or pushed in his wheelchair, whatever transpires re. any appeal.

Lewis has no reputation left, surely, not in the London legal community. I cannot see any law firm actually wanting to employ him. His best bet is for one of the Jew Zionist billionaires in the UK (or Monte?) to stake him to the tune of a hundred grand or so. Perhaps he will strike lucky that way… Come to think of it, if his fellow Zionists (“standing with Israel” from North London armchairs and Twitter accounts) value Lewis so much, they can all send him a fiver a month. Surely he has 100 admirers? Oh…

Lewis has the right of appeal (to the Administrative Court), and 21 days from 13 December (when the Judgment was published) in which to lodge an appeal. So until 3 January 2019. I doubt that he will appeal, though. It would surely be pointless (even were he to win) and might result only in another multi-day “trial” with a similar result.

http://www.solicitorstribunal.org.uk/constitutions-and-procedures/appeals

Update, 22 December 2018

Jewish Zionist extremist Jonathan Hoffman (of “Sussex Friends of Israel”) has now set up a petition to the effect that the verdict and sentence in the Mark Lewis case should be declared “null and void”.

https://www.change.org/p/edward-nally-justice-for-mark

So far (at time of writing), only 224 persons have signed the petition supporting Lewis. That’s about 1 out of every 300,000 people in the UK, or to put it another way, 1 out of about every 1,200 Jews in the UK.

Hoffman seems to imagine that all that is required to void the proceedings and result of them is for the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal to make a declaration! The couple of dozen other Jew-Zionists (several of them lawyers!) who have tweeted similarly appear to be under the same delusion.

In reality, the Tribunal panel member objected to was only one of three, and was not even the Chairman of the panel. If Lewis thinks that the verdict or sentence should be set aside, he need only lodge notice of appeal by 3 January 2019. No doubt the Administrative Court will do exactly as he and/or his extremist “claque” and clique of supporters would wish (ha ha!— I am of course being heavily ironic or satirical, and quite possibly sarcastic…).

Again, I fail to see what even Lewis himself would gain from either any successful appeal (highly unlikely though such success would be) or from some unilateral act of hara-kiri by the Tribunal.

Lewis was not struck off the solicitors’ roll by the SDT; he was not even suspended. His £10,000 costs penalty, which the Tribunal implied would almost certainly not even be collected by the SRA (by reason of his impecuniosity), has been crowdfunded, as has his fine of £2,500. The SDT finding and sentence does not stop Lewis from working as a solicitor, if (a big if!) he can get any law firm to employ him, or alternatively if he complies with the necessary regulations to practise as a sole practitioner.

In reality, Lewis was leaving the UK for Israel anyway. One can see why (and it is not because he and his ghastly partner/carer are in the slightest afraid of British “anti-Semitism”): Lewis has a progressive/degenerative medical condition, MS, which has worsened in the past few years. He is unable to walk properly and has either to use a mobility scooter, or to be pushed in a wheelchair, or (until he left for Israel) to drive himself in the car supplied to him (thanks to the “antisemitic” British taxpayer…) by Motability in lieu of Disability Living Allowance.

Lewis had not attended his place of work (at Seddons, the London law firm) since March 2018, by reason of his medical condition, which was made worse by some kind of traffic accident. He became unable to write. When Seddons heard of the complaints against Lewis to the SRA (or when the upcoming Tribunal hearing was publicized), Seddons terminated Lewis’s employment, in September 2018, on 6 months’ notice, though presenting it at the time as if the reason, or sole reason, for the termination was that Lewis was emigrating permanently to Israel.

While of course I do not know the details of Lewis’s billing performance etc at Seddons, he was on a pay package of £10,000 a month (gross), presumably (educated guess) with the possibility of a bonus or percentage if he exceeded that amount of billed work over a period. In Tribunal, it was said by Lewis’s Counsel that his assets as of November 2018 were just his clothes, his mobility scooter and a pension which was worth £70 a week or less. That, and his £10,000 a month pay, payable only until March 2019.

Reading between the lines, one can see that, while Lewis’s assiduous courting of the “occupied” UK mass media brought Seddons publicity (a mixed blessing, I should have thought!), Lewis obviously was not bringing in or doing much billed work. In short, he was not worth his salt even before he stopped actual work (or even attending his office) in March 2018. Seddons seem to have treated Lewis rather well, inasmuch as they carried him totally for six months before terminating his contract. To be frank, I was astonished to read, in 2015, that a well-known firm such as Seddons had taken Lewis on. I expect that they lived to regret it.

To return to the main point, Lewis had already decided to leave the UK for Israel. He knew (probably years in advance, as I did when Jew-Zionists made malicious complaint against me to the Bar Standards Board, an analogous situation) that he was going to be “put on trial” at Tribunal and that Seddons would probably not keep him on, so he (again, educated guess and I may be mistaken) kept it quiet from Seddons as long as he could, to keep getting the £10,000 a month (after tax, assuming that he paid it, so about £7,000 a month net).

Lewis now has little future as a lawyer, but that has really nothing to do with the verdict of the Tribunal. Lewis never denied posting the violent and crazed messages wherewith he was charged. Indeed, he justified himself in respect of the non-Jew victims, though he was willing to crawl a bit to the father of the 18-y-o Jew victim.

In other words, Lewis’s behaviour was exposed at Tribunal, and even were he to appeal and to win any appeal (unlikely anyway), any potential employers or clients will be aware of what he wrote; also aware that Lewis has been and presumably still is sometimes non compos mentis by reason of either his medical condition, or its effects on the brain, or the medication used in respect of that. I would not want a lawyer like that; few would.

Lewis has also stated that he will not be making application to join the Bar of Israel.

I can only assume that Lewis will be living off a number of income sources while living in Israel:

  • his partner/carer is apparently a buy-to-let parasite in the UK and/or has other business interests; she has stated that she will be buying property in Israel;
  • Lewis will still be able to get some UK Disability Living Allowance (paid for by all those “antisemitic” British taxpayers…) in Israel, indefinitely. Yes, only up to maybe £100 a week or so, but hey!…;
  • I have no idea what disability benefits Israel offers, but I suppose that there are some;
  • Lewis has a £70 a week private pension;
  • Israel offers considerable “Aliyah” (emigration/immigration) benefits (see Notes, below), which, by the way, include a one-way free flight to Israel, financial help, housing benefit etc;
  • I would not be surprised to discover that his Jewish Zionist supporters in the UK will be covertly remitting him some charity monies informally; indeed, it is not beyond the possible that some wealthy Jews will remit him larger sums, who knows?

This individual, Lewis, is the Jew Zionist who, having conspired behind the scenes against me for years (since 2013, if not before that),

  • was one of the Jews covertly behind the malicious complaint about me to the Bar Standards Board by “UK Lawyers for Israel” (where he is or was a leading member);
  • was involved in the malicious complaint against me by the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” (where he is still an “Honorary Patron”, oddly described as Dr. Mark Lewis, maybe because he was given an honorary degree by Middlesex Poly/Uni a few years ago) to Essex Police; and
  • repeatedly tweeted about me that I was or am “a sad unemployable git” and “failure as barrister, failure as human being”!

Now look who’s talking! An incoherent, washed-up, foul-mouthed, disgraced, twice-divorced Jew Zionist, living in Israel on benefits, charity and off his “partner/carer”, and incapable of doing anything except tweeting and being pushed around in a wheelchair.

Update, 13 January 2019

Hoffman’s absurd online petition to the SRA demanding (ignorantly) that the SDT or SRA “overturn” the verdict in the Lewis case has now effectively come to its end, with 411 signatories. 411 out of about 250,000+ Jews in the UK (and about 65,000,000 non-Jews).

Update, 7 March 2019

More about the “Mark Lewis Lawyer” whom his Jew-Zionist cronies on Twitter etc always refer to as “top lawyer”, “top defamation specialist” and such nonsense; “Mark Lewis Lawyer”, such a “top lawyer” that his income is now zero and his sole assets are his cheap clothes and a mobility scooter! Sacked by his last three (or four) employers. Oh, and here is another dissatisfied former client…

Update, 23 October 2019

Seems that Lewis’s ex-wife, Caroline Feraday, has also fallen on hard times, living in a “Nowheresville” in California with her young daughter (Caroline Feraday is now a single mother). She says that she is unable to raise a mere $10,000 [£7,700], despite having some kind of (“office bod”?) job, and so has turned to GoFundMe. Strange. She was featured, in the past (in newspapers), a decade ago though, as having property of considerable value both in the UK and Brazil (in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro) as well as (since 2013) in California.

Surprisingly, she has, and within only one day (at time of writing), managed to raise nearly $2,000 of the $10,000 for which she asks.

Update, 23 February 2020

Following the publication of the above article and updates, Lewis arranged to be a “partner” (a flexible term) at a small, mainly if not wholly Jewish law firm based in mews somewhere in or near Notting Hill, in West London. He seems to spend most of his time at his flat in Eilat, Israel (though at the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal in 2018, Lewis’s Counsel told those judging him that Lewis had no peoperty…).

Lewis was retained by two notorious Jew-Zionists (an actress and a daytime TV game show presenter) to hunt down and sue ~70 Labour Party members alleged to have tweeted libellous matter. So far, no case has actually come to court, as far as I know.

Lewis also, with others (I understand from an account read that there were three law firms and also six barristers on the winning side, if I understood correctly), was recently instructed in an employment case in the High Court at London, and where the claimant was awarded substantial damages, with about a million pounds of legal costs awarded or (as I think) agreed. So presumably he will get a good cut of that.

Some reading this may have already read my blog post about the “trial” of self-publicizing Jew-Zionist solicitor Mark Lewis, whose Twitter account @mlewislawyer was once @MarkLewisLawyer:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/11/23/mark-lewis-lawyer-tries-to-have-part-of-the-case-against-him-thrown-out/

That blog post dates from the first day of the hearing in the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal and has been updated to (so far) 12 December 2018.

Now more information has become available about the abuse that [prescription] drug-sozzled Lewis handed out, not only to social-nationalists (like me, who had to block the bastard on Twitter a number of years ago!), not only to supposed “neo-Nazis” (as if their political orientation made death threats acceptable!), but also to a Jewish boy aged only 18! The father of that victim has now revealed some of those details to the Jewish Chronicle:

Mark Lewis, the solicitor who was ordered to pay £12,500 for sending abusive social media messages to online trolls, also told a young Jewish man he hoped his father “would sit shiva for you soon”, the JC can reveal.

Note: To “sit Shiva” is a ritual that Jews perform after a death:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiva_(Judaism)

The Jewish Chronicle report continues:

“Mr Lewis was fined and ordered him to pay thousands in legal costs for “wishing death” on people on social media, many of whom had sent him antisemitic abuse or wished similar on him.” (so he said…)

“The decision prompted outrage in the Jewish community and several crowdfunders quickly raised the money for him.”

“But the JC has seen Facebook posts Mr Lewis wrote to an 18-year-old who was supporting the Labour Party during the 2017 general election campaign, telling him to “f**k off you stupid c**t”, adding that his father “should have worn a condom”.”

“Lawyer sent abuse to [a Jewish] 18-year-old, telling him to ‘f**k off you stupid c**t’. The exchange was one of the allegations that was the subject of a formal complaint to the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), which has still not published its full judgment. Offensive messages Mr Lewis sent to people who had sent him antisemitic [messages] were reported separately.”

Mr Lewis responded by saying the SRA was “faced with a choice between Holocaust denying neo-Nazis and a Jewish lawyer… It chose to side with the neo-Nazis”.”

“The father of Mr Lewis’s 18-year-old victim told the JC he came forward with the details because the “record needs to be set straight”.”

“He said he was frustrated Mr Lewis, who made Aliyah last week, was “being treated like a hero” in the wake of the judgment because people believed he had only been abusive to neo-Nazis.”

“The father added: “It was inappropriate behaviour from a solicitor. It was inappropriate for an adult, especially because it was directed towards someone who was only a few days away from legally being a child.”

“And also for someone who is allegedly a voice for the community – you don’t use that sort of language. It was my son, and it was abusive.”

“What frustrated me is that he was being treated like a hero. I want the story to be known that he’s not a good guy and that people shouldn’t give him any money. The record needs to be set straight.”

[Lewis] blamed his outburst on Clonazepam, a sedativeside effects of which include aggression and hallucinations.”

Following the ruling, two separate crowdfunding pages were established to support Mr Lewis raising more than £13,000 in total – in excess of his £12,500 costs.”

Notes

Lewis has now emigrated to Israel and is an Israeli citizen.

I intend to blog more fully about this Lewis character in due course.

Some Twitter Reaction:

and here is more: by the way, the “Ian” mentioned in Lewis’s threatening tweet of 4 November 2018 is not me but another Ian. We are legion…

Here we see “Labour Left Voice” noting, satirically and rhetorically, equally abusive and threatening tweets sent by Mandy Gargoyle:

Even some of the actively Zionist Jews in the UK are shaking their heads at Lewis’s behaviour:

In fact, people were talking about Lewis’s abusive tweets etc years ago:

The blog below purports to detail some of Lewis’s lesser known tweets, threats etc: 

https://debatingculture.wordpress.com/2017/04/16/unhinged-mlewislawyer-bile-bullying-slander-threats/

Does Lewis claim to have been in a state of prescription-drug intoxication when tweeting the horrific stuff detailed in that Debating Culture blog above? Was his mind not quite…normal…for some other reason? We do not know.

Update, 16 December 2018

Here below, at the foot of this section, is one of Lewis’s tweets about me, from over 2 years ago. As you, the reader, will see, he refers to me as “failure as a barrister and as a human being”, among other things.

I suppose that most people who read that tweet were unaware of the irony: until Lewis got onto the “phonehacking” wagon, he himself was at rock-bottom. He had parted company with a firm of solicitors in Manchester under unclear circumstances (rather a theme…see below), had been divorced (ditto), and in or about 2009 was only making about £9,000 a year (as he admitted to a newspaper interviewer a few years later). Lewis was not exactly a hot property, as he admitted in a newspaper interview at the time of the “phonehacking” stories:

“I was devastated,” he says. “I’d been turned down for so many jobs, I’m thinking to myself, I can’t go on any more, you can only get so many knockbacks. I’m giving in and going to my flat in Israel and retire in Eilat.”

 The phonehacking stuff paid off, and soon Lewis was busily creating a legend as “top lawyer”. Phonehacking work did not last long, of course. Technology moved on and phonehacking is now just a footnote in legal history (it’s a purely UK story anyway: hardly anyone in the USA has heard of it). Lewis left his next firm, in London (where he was a “consultant”), under acrimonious circumstances (he much later sued that firm and they countersued, but it is not publicly known how that ended, the matter presumably having been settled and sealed).

In 2013, Lewis married for the second time, his new wife being one-time local radio presenter Caroline Feraday. “Top lawyer” marries “celebrity” was how Lewis and Feraday presented the event. Stories were seen in the Press about how Lewis “had clients in the USA” to where he and la Feraday would be relocating (to her new apartment in West Hollywood, no less). She, in her turn, seemingly had various Hollywood opportunities lined up, the newsreading public was told.  She already had a part in a TV sitcom arranged —had “been cast” in it—, the gullible (?) readers were told. More than that! She was busy “writing a book”, which was to be turned into a film and “several studios are interested…”* 

Lewis, the Daily Mail’s tame showbiz reporter was told by Feraday, had clients in the U.S. and would “commute” between LA and London. As 1950s people were wont to say, “get you!”…

Lewis and Feraday moved to West Hollywood, flying Virgin Upper Class (well, after all, they were, er, “celebrities”, weren’t they?) to LA. They joined the West Hollywood branch of the Soho House club, on Sunset Boulevard.

https://www.sohohousewh.com/

“Celebrities” have more than a few thousand Twitter followers, of course, so they both “acquired” tens of thousands of new “followers”, Lewis ending up after a week or so with about 80,000! When caught out, Lewis claimed, ludicrously, that he had been “hacked” (yes, that makes sense! Naturally, his enemies would want him to seem more important and influential…oh, no, wait…). The Legal Cheek online news service reported it brilliantly deadpan. Very clever…

https://www.legalcheek.com/2014/06/phone-hacking-lawyers-twitter-gets-hacked-and-he-becomes-most-followed-member-of-uk-legal-profession/

Of course, that would (pretty much) have to mean that someone, for no immediately-obvious reason, also bought tens of thousands of fake Twitter followers in the same week for Lewis’s then wife, Caroline Feraday…[Update, 18 May 2019: Caroline Feraday’s tens of thousands of fake —bought— Twitter “followers” have now dwindled to “13,000” but the real number must be a few thousand at most; a brief look at her tweets https://twitter.com/CarolineFeraday shows that hardly any Twitter users bother to “like” them, let alone retweet or reply. Many have no interaction at all, a few have 1 or 2 “likes”… When I was on Twitter, I had about 3,000 followers (all real) and had many many retweets, likes and replies]. 

Sadly, all that hype seemed to disappear like a mirage in Death Valley. La Feraday never did get into an American sitcom (or if she did,it must have bombed or been pulled immediately…there never was one, I am guessing). I have no idea whether she ever got any part in American film or TV. Her breathless “look at me, people—a celebrity in sunny Hollywood!” Twitter account said nothing (that I saw, anyway) about her getting a acting part, but that is unsurprising. After all, why should an acting part on American TV, or in a film, go to someone without any acting experience and who was nearly 40? The supposed book deals and film options also vanished without trace.

OK Magazine had already described Caroline Feraday as looking “a bit past it” even in 2010! https://www.ok.co.uk/lifestyle/356263/samsung-pink-ribbon-celebration-best-and-worst-on-the-pink-carpet

As for Lewis, his brave new Californian world crumbled into ashes. American lawyers soon realized that Lewis (unlike, er, me) had never qualified at the Bar of any American state and so was not qualified to practise in California (or any other state). Those lawyers made sure that the California Bar was aware of the foregoing. The upshot (whatever the causes…and I have heard a few stories) was that the marriage foundered after only a year (including a few months in LA) and Lewis returned to the UK in 2014 with his tail between his legs.

By the following year, Lewis had joined the well-known London law firm, Seddons, as a partner. At the time, I was surprised that Seddons had taken him on, but there it is. He left in 2018, just as it became known that he was coming up for “trial” in the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal (where he was found guilty on all charges). Seddons’ statement was that Lewis had resigned as a partner because of his upcoming “aliyah” (emigration) to Israel (he is now an Israeli citizen).

Lewis’s second ex-wife, Caroline Feraday, stayed on in LA, did some amateur comedy appearances there and a few 2-minute reports about the Oscars etc for the UK local TV news show, BBC South-East Today (cheaper than actually sending someone, I suppose), and eventually had a child in 2017 by another man.

Lewis is now an Israeli citizen and resident (he has or had a flat there). He is not now a partner or employee of any law firm in the UK and has stated that he will not seek admission to whatever Bar may exist in Israel. He has a degenerative progressive medical condition and is, apparently, on medication.

[note: much material about Lewis, including some newspaper coverage, particularly about his marriage to and divorce from Feraday, has mysteriously disappeared from the Internet, or at least from Google searches].

I wonder about whom this recent tweet by Caroline Feraday was…

It should be added that, for someone with (supposedly) 13,000 Twitter followers, Caroline Feraday very rarely seems to get retweeted or even “liked”. I have never quite understood why people buy Twitter followers. She had about 5,000 one week, in about 2011 or 2012, then, in the course of a week or so, suddenly jumped to about 55,000! Lewis’s Twitter follower-count jumped from about 7,000 or 8,000 to nearly 80,000 (in the same couple of weeks). Still, Caroline Feraday is at least an animal lover, which counts for something (with me, anyway).

* Irony klaxon (re. tweet below)…

Further thoughts, 17 December 2018

In another tweet from a year or two ago, Lewis referred to me as, inter alia, “a sad unemployable git”. Well, we have seen that until he tapped into the “phonehacking” racket, he himself was virtually unemployable at the age of 40-something (and even Taylor Hampton, the law firm which brought the phonehacking claims, would not make him a partner but only retained him as “consultant”).

[above, Lewis’s tweet, not the first either, about me having been disbarred at the instigation of the UK Jew-Zionist lobby. His tweet was posted six months after the disbarment and is purely abusive. “Dave”, aka “Slatfascists”, is a Twitter troll with mental health problems (and on medication, just like, er, someone else…)].

I might add that my tweets from early 2017 about UKIP are now even more obviously true!

Now look…

Mark Lewis

  • has now been found guilty of serious breaches of the Code of Conduct for solicitors in England;
  • has admitted in his testimony in the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal that he at times was unaware of what he said, did or wrote, by reason of ingestion of prescription drugs;
  • has “left” the law firm, Seddons, where he had been a partner for the past 2-3 years, and so is, er…in a word…unemployed;
  • has emigrated permanently to Israel but has stated that he will not be seeking admittance to the Bar of Israel [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel_Bar_Association];
  • cannot work in any case as a solicitor in England unless approved as such by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority as a sole practitioner or until such time as he is again employed by a law firm (neither seems to be the case at present anyway);
  • presents (eg at Tel Aviv Airport recently, filmed by RT News) a shambling, limping figure, able to walk for short periods using a stick, otherwise having to be pushed around in a wheelchair, his eyes bloodshot, his short statement (at Tel Aviv Airport) almost incoherent.

One has to ask the simple question, “so just who is the sad unemployable git?”...

“What goes around comes around”…

After Lewis’s admissions at his recent Disciplinary Tribunal, I commented, in a previous blog post, that “he is on the way out”. I was too kind. He’s finished.

(I shall probably blog at a later date about some of Lewis’s “forensic triumphs”, such as the Katie Hopkins/Jack Monroe case, but suffice to say right now that a lobotomized student would have been incapable of losing that one…) 

Further Update, 19 December 2018

The Law Society Gazette has now published more news about Lewis and his “trial” in the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal etc.

https://www.lawgazette.co.uk/law/mark-lewis-judgment-reveals-sdt-considered-reprimand/5068711.article

So much for the “top lawyer” who now seems to be (to use one of Lewis’s insults to me) “an unemployable git”!

Lewis only had to pay a third of the fine considered by the SDT panel because:

“In its full decision published this week the SDT said it eventually came to the conclusion that a reprimand would not be a strong enough punishment and that a fine would be the most appropriate outcome. However, it reduced the fine from an initial estimate of £7,500 to £2,500 on account of Lewis’s financial struggles.”

The disciplinary panel judging and sentencing Lewis considered that:

“In mitigation, the tribunal accepted Lewis’ submission that he had limited means. He did not own his own house and [his] monthly expenses exceeded his liabilities.”

The Law Society Gazette says that the SDT panel added that:

 “Although his former firm Seddons is paying him £10,000 per month before tax this was due to end in March [2019].”

What’s this? The “top lawyer”, “top libel and reputation specialist” etc has “financial struggles”? When for most of the past decade he has been tweeting and telling newspapers all about what a big success he is, with his classic cars and international client-base?

Either Lewis is not quite the “top lawyer” and huge success he has been claiming to be for the past 7+ years, or he was “economical with the truth” at the Solicitors’ Disciplinary Tribunal. One way or another he has been telling what the Cockneys call “porkies”! That’s not very kosher!

So the “top lawyer”, with his supposed millions from the “phonehacking” racket and well-publicized libel cases etc, does not own his own house? (in London— he does have or had an apartment in Israel, according to a newspaper article several years ago).

Still, the fact that the SDT thinks that someone getting (after tax) pay of about £7,000 a month is “financially struggling” says more about London law firms than about Lewis, arguende! (that pay is in fact about the same, in real terms, as I was once paid, when an offshore lawyer many years ago).

The way Lewis managed to bamboozle the UK msm and so the poor duped UK public into believing that he was —or even still is— a “top lawyer” etc reminds me rather of the front once put up by another Jewish Zionist, the not so late and certainly unlamented “Robert Maxwell”, who has now also “relocated” to Israel, though he is not quite in a position to enjoy it. Maxwell never fooled me (even when I was in my late teens, in the mid-1970s); neither has Lewis.

Update, 23 October 2019

Seems that Lewis’s ex-wife, Caroline Feraday, has also fallen on hard times, living in a “Nowheresville” in California with her young daughter (Caroline Feraday is now a single mother). She says that she is unable to raise a mere $10,000 [£7,700], despite having some kind of (“office bod”?) job, and so has turned to GoFundMe. Strange. I thought that (she said) she was a “celebrity”? 15 minutes of fame? She was featured, in the past (in a few London newspapers), a decade ago though, as having property of considerable value both in the UK and Brazil (in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro) as well as (since 2013) in California. What happened to those properties?

Surprisingly, she has, and within only one day (at time of writing), managed to raise nearly $2,000 of the $10,000 for which she asks.
