Please Give Generously

This is an urgent appeal on behalf of the British Red Tops.

You may have seen in the media recently about the impact Hurricane Norman has had on the Fourth Estate. Lasting thousands of hours and causing millions of pounds of expenditure, Hurricane Norman had serious and far reaching consequences on the future of the British press.

This is Rebekah.

Prior to Hurricane Norman, she was one of the most powerful women in the British media. Norman has left her with no job, no hope, no future. She may be forced to sell one of her horses just to meet the mortgage payments on her big house in the Cotswolds.

Rebekah is not alone.

There are dozens more like her, struggling to survive in the aftermath of Hurricane Norman. These people face being deprived of their most basic human rights:

The right to bribe police officers for sensitive, confidential and potentially prejudicial information.

The right to access the emails, text messages and voicemails of anyone they think might be newsworthy.

The right to manipulate politicians into setting standards and legislation in a way that best suits their needs, under threat of withdrawing their support otherwise.

If you believe that the likes of Rebekah should have these basic human rights, please give generously.

Send a cheque, made payable to Murdoch, Dacre and Co to:

Save The Scumbag
Murdoch Towers
A Tax Haven

On behalf of Rebekah, Andy and others like them, thank you.
