Arrival of the Troops
What an incredible day yesterday.
First, I published the blog post “Swallowing a Bitter Pill”. I had genuinely decided to let the housing benefit matter rest.
Then Private Eye published the article following the interview I gave them after the housing benefit appeal tribunal. Thank you so much Heather Mills – you’ve been in our corner since 2010.
The I went off to work at 12 o’clock and the Twitter world seemed to come alive in the same way that Bill & Ben appeared whenever the gardener went off for lunch.
By the time, I got home from work at 8.30 pm, I had 78 emails. Lots of offers from solicitors/barristers offering to take on the case pro bono.
I decided to go with the team assembled by the great Lucy Series. She worked so hard yesterday trying to get people interested and has got together two barristers and a solicitor to work on the case. Lucy found us our solicitor back in 2010, so it feels like a very good omen this time round.
To all the other people offering help or messaging support, I am so grateful.
It must have been nearly 2am before I went to sleep this morning. I always find kindness very enotional, so was a bit if a blubbering wreck well into the early hours.
