This young man has put up an extraordinary fight over the last three and a half years.
Goodness knows, there are many roads to riches in the legal profession.
But Marcus Ball took the road of integrity and selflessness, and devoted his whole life – one might say he put his life on the line – to fight for truthfulness.
What has been particularly noticeable is that Marcus’s fight has not been political. He has specifically been fighting against public servants telling untruths in public office.
I have myself contributed to Marcus’s campaign. I am delighted by every penny I gave him through crowd funding. I do not begrudge a single penny I gave his campaign.
He now faces bankruptcy.
Well, he deserves a great future in the legal profession.
It is extremely unusual to come across such selfless motives.
This country needs more Marcus Balls!
I salute him!
