Today the Guardian Newspaper have published a whole series of articles starting with a leader by Jimmy Wales founder of Wikipedia and advisor to the UK Government. Jimmy Wales has spoken out in support of Richard describing him as "clean cut geeky kid" and one who he could see launching the next big thing on the internet.

Jimmy Wales support is an incredible development, as such an influential and respected figure I hope the government will wake up and listen to what he is saying.

There is a link in the article to a petition Jimmy has launched #saverichard petition at

James Ball Journalist at the Guardian has been working with Richard and produced some good pieces on the situation
