This case is raising funds for its stretch target. Your pledge will be collected within the next 24-48 hours (and it only takes two minutes to pledge!)

John Ware, presenter of the BBC Panorama programme “Is Labour Antisemitic?” broadcast in July 2019, is suing Jewish Voice for Labour and two of its officers over their criticisms of his work.


For the past 15 months, Ware’s libel writ has been hanging over the individuals named:

  • Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, who was interviewed by Jeremy Vine on Radio 2 the day after the programme was screened
  • Richard Kuper, editor of JVL’s online blog which published reports on the subject
  • JVL as an organisation is also in the firing line, under sustained pressure because of the potentially crippling costs of defending a libel action while we are also battling on many other fronts.

We are now fundraising to cover our ongoing extensive legal costs in defending this libel case, and to ensure that we can cover the other side’s costs if necessary.

We appreciate there are many calls on your finances, but this case is very important to JVL and its supporters and we ask you to give generously. 

In the unlikely event that we raise more than we need, we will ensure that any unused funds are transferred to fund other case(s) that support JVL principles (see www.jvl.org.uk).

Please also share on all your networks. Thank you for your support.
