'STRING OF PERSONAL ATTACKS AGAINST ME'
Southern Daily Echo – 1 May 2009
On my website, www.julianlewis.net, is a section called 'Terry Scriven’s Antics'. This sets out in full – mostly outside Parliamentary privilege – his activities which led me to ciriticise him in Parliament (report, April 30).
Openly supporting my campaign to protect MPs’ home addresses, whilst privately working with the journalist campaigning to reveal them
Demanding that I be criminally investigated by Hampshire Police for the way I registered to vote, even though this had been approved by the Electoral Registration Officer
Writing to the heads of MI5 and MI6, demanding to know if I have ever worked for these secret agencies; and
Initiating a story in the News of the World which falsely claimed that I 'hardly visit' my home in the constituency when I have lived there continuously for over a decade.
As I said in Parliament, I and my solicitor have repeatedly invited Mr Scriven to explain and justify such behaviour, personally attacking me behind my back; but he always refuses to answer any questions – except by claiming that I am trying to 'intimidate' him by asking them.
