Four Months Today

Thanks to David Keen, who sent the following message to all members of the ‘We Support Dave Walker’ facebook group this morning. I’ve added some [footnotes] linked to the relevant posts and listed below.

Dear everyone,

It’s 4 months ago – 22 July – that Dave Walker received his legal threat from Mark Brewer and was forced to take down his SPCK posts [1]. If you have a blog, you might want to mention that today.

As you may know, Mark Brewer has been fined by the US courts for bringing a time-wasting court action for bankruptcy [2], and we now hear that his company is being investigated by the Charity Commissioners [3]. These are all matters Dave would have reported if he had not been bullied and threatened. 

If you’d like to do something supportive, you can sign a petition to Durham Cathedral to ask them to intervene over the SSG bookshop they host: [4]

Latest developments are online at, very interesting leaked email gone up in the last few days [5]. 

And finally, still no reply from Mark Brewer to the letter I sent (twice) on our behalf [6]. Very disappointing. He expects Dave to respond within a few hours, and yet doesn’t even bother to answer us within a month. Disgraceful.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Dave. Truth and justice will win, it’s just taking longer than we’d hoped!

  1. 304 signatures. Thank you everyone.

  2. Excellent. I noticed we were up to 297 earlier today – I’ll forward the updated list to the Dean tomorrow 🙂

    I do hope Philip and Mark Brewer are reading this: howdy y’all if you are!! Time to make like John Sergeant in Strictly Come Dancing isn’t it? Only in John’s case, the public wanted him to stay — for you gentlemen, looks like you’ve got judges and public alike wanting you out…
