Let’s take this nice and slowly, so Ms Mensch has a chance of understanding it. Gilligan claimed that Mr Li had written articles for The 4th Media, a site that also includes all manner of conspiracy theories, including some that are anti-Semitic. But he had not written for that site - The 4th Media is an aggregator that copied and pasted items from other sites. The Telegraph later withdrew that claim, and in any case levelled no claim of anti-Semitism against Mr Li. After all, there is no evidence to support such a claim.
Nor is there any evidence that Li is “anti-democratic”. But there is evidence that Louise Mensch has libelled him, and unless she withdraws quickly, who knows what will follow?
