Standing Out From The Crowd?

The Court of Appeal has ruled that Carole Cadwalladr must pay £1.2 million towards Arron Banks’s legal costs, in addition to £35,000 in damages, plus her own ongoing legal costs. Cadwalladr is crowdfunding to pay all of that, or to appeal, or something. I mean, who cares? The point is that she is crowdfunding.

TED is a non-profit organisation, but The Observer is published by the Scott Trust, which has £1.3 billion in the bank. Yet because of something published in The Observer, Cadwalladr is having to crowdfund. Take the hint, Carole. Take the hint.
