Welcome to New Ways Clinic

Further to the article in the MEN, you will note there is NOT a single client complaint or client comment, in the absence of a complaint, what is this article really about?

Without a single client complainant why did reporter Dan Thompson launch a 'special investigation' with the express aim of causing maximum damage to a business with a 5 year track record and no complaints?

How does an honest reporter carrying out a 'special investigation' not speak to a single client of the business or ask to see the 500+ client testimonials we had in the office? That's because his 'investigation' was dishonest and not genuine, he had a predetermined outcome to help his friend Mike Linnell of Linnell Publications and Lifeline Project who was threatened by our business helping addicts to get clean. This devastating damage to our reputation was at the hands of a corporate rival.

Mike Linnell of the Lifeline Project who claims to help addicts is a LIAR as he was cause of the smear against New Ways Clinics who were helping addicts become drug-free, he did so to protect his job, drugs services contract and worthless publications. Fortunately there are laws for lawful means conspiracy which are part of ‘economic torts’.'The court looks at the overt acts of the conspiracy and infers from those acts that there was agreement to further the common object of the combination. It is sufficient that two or more persons combine with the necessary intention or that they deliberately co-operate, albeit tacitly, to achieve a common endthe tort is complete only if the agreement is carried into effect so as to damage the claimant'. 

How did Dan Thompson even become aware of us and why launch such a 'front page' news attack? If his LIES are true, where are all the complainants?

If his article was true, the matter would have been referred to the police for prosecution but it wasn't, as there is no evidence of any wrong doing, only 500+ client testimonials praising our help and treatment methods. As its not true, then that means their story is complete LIES which was done with the sole or predominant purpose of injuring our business. A well-run smear campaign can have a profound and long-lasting effect on an organisation or an individual’s reputation.

So, how much was Dan Thompson paid to do this?

Our treatment has literally saved people lives, without our treatment they would be dead, just think about that for a minute and their actions to stop people getting help.

At the time of the article we had over 500+ legally verified client testimonials, yet according to reporter Dan Thompson & his mate Mike Linnell it's 'snake oil' but they have no evidence to substantiate their claims, only more LIES to aid their conspiracy.

Dan Thompson & Mike LInnell's LIES, DECEPTION, DECEIT and Bogus Article to stop people who need help is a wicked and despicable act.

This is why the press needed a complete overhaul as pre Leveson rogue journalist like Dan Thompson were free to make up what they liked. Dan Thompson of the Manchester Evening News and Mike Linnell of Linnell Publications who peddle LIES and of Lifeline Project Suite 2A Basil Chambers 65 High Street Manchester M4 1FS are LIARS. This is only actionable if it's not true, so please come and sue me Antoni Wilk.

As an example of their blatant lies at no time have we ever claimed to 'cure addicts', it's a complete LIE.

Their article is LIES & A SMEAR CAMPAIGN to discredit me and the business, and to stop people who need help with drug and alcohol issues from using our treatment services to get clean, it's a wicked and despicable act. But why? Because people like Mike Linnell make money from addicts and keeping them on drugs.

As stated by Dr Dalrymple author of 'Junk Medicine Doctors, Lies & Addiction Bureaucracy' says 'The bureaucracy of drug addiction needs drug addicts far more than drug addicts need the bureaucracy of drug addiction'. The addiction industry continues to perpetuate the addiction myth to protect its own existence. As a result, 'a self-serving, self-perpetuating and completely useless bureaucracy has built up to deal with the problem' which Mike LInnell is part of.

Lies & Smear Campaign
At the time Mike Linnell worked (later sacked) for the drugs charity Lifeline Project (who spend 67% of their income on themselves and have been "exposed" by the press, condemned by politicians and warned by the police) have a contract with Manchester council to provide drug services to addicts. In June 2010 we were also in contact with Manchester council to use our drug detox treatment to help addicts get clean and become drug-free. This is obviously a direct threat to the useless drug maintenance programs run by Lifeline. Mike Linnell came to visit our clinic in July 2010 pretending to be a drug addict and asking questions about our treatment and plans to make the treatment widely available and free to addicts with council funding.

Mke Linnell was worried about our plans and the direct threat to his job and his junk publications if we got the contract so contacted his mate at the Manchester Evening News Dan Thompson to write an article so damning that no one would use our service and the business would close as they had conspired before.

Dan Thompson then launched a 'special investigation' (for an undisclosed payment or as a favour) into a business with a 5 year track record and no complainants, the word 'special' meaning 'he ignored all the evidence and the facts and lied to sensationalise his article to close a legal and legitimate business'.

At the same time in November 2010 Mike Linnell setup UK DrugWatch to peddle more lies about addiction, so it clear why he wanted us out of the way as our treatment disproves his lies about addiction. As stated by Dr Dalrymple, Mike Linnell efforts are based around maintaining the drug problem for addicts not helping them to become drug-free.

Mike Linnell was later sacked from the Lifeline Project for misconduct in February 2014 after which he couldn't get a proper job in the industry and started his own leaflet business called Linnell Communications from his front room at 35 Guest Road in Prestwich M25 3DJ with the grand title of 'managing director' printing flyers with information obtain from the internet for 8p a copy. Karma at its best.

Their 'malicious' MEN article is a 'smear campaign' and nothing more, they have provided no evidence to support their claims and allegations and had no complaints yet the MEN still refuse to remove the 'untrue and malicious' article providing clear evidence of 'actual malice' to stop people who need help from using our treatment services to become drug-free.

Their defence is 1. Trinity Mirror is the not the publisher of the words complained of and 2. Limitation Act 1980 and Defamation Act 2013 Section 8(3)

Dan Thompson works for Trinity Mirror is says so on their website, Trinity Mirror also own the Manchester Evening News and are legally responsible for its content.

Everyone knows the Defamation Act 2013 is NOT retrospective it will not apply to any cause of action which occured before the 1st January 2014, their article was published in November 2010 and predates the Defamation Act and is published daily on their website so the old Laws and multiple publication rule apply. Any legal action must commence within 12 months from the last day of publication, as it is published daily, I am well within any time limits. Complainants still have six years to instigate proceedings in relation to an article published prior to January of this year.

Nowhere in their response do they defend the article as a piece of journalism, now they are trying to deny it and hide behind laws which do not apply as their LIES are being published daily. Trinity Mirror are not a member of the Government backed Press Recognition Panel. THE  PRESS RECOGNITION PANEL  IS THE INDEPENDENT BODY SET UP BY ROYAL CHARTER TO ENSURE THAT REGULATORS OF THE UK PRESS ARE INDEPENDENT, PROPERLY FUNDED AND ABLE TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC.

In any event evidence of 'malice' counters any defence.

Our claim amounts to one of 'conspiracy, economic torts, and harassment'. Dan Thompson & Mike Linnell conspired to cause maximum damage to our business which resulted severe financial damage and loss, this harassment continues by way of daily internet publication. The court can make an order or injunction that the person or company harassing you must stop their behaviour. If they don’t stop harassing you after the court has made an injunction against them, it's a criminal offence and they can be prosecuted in the criminal courts.

I welcome a 'full hearing' into this article as Dan Thompson and Mike Linnell are LIARS and have serious questions to answer regarding their CONSPIRACY, LIES, SMEARS and MALICIOUS INTENT to close a legitimate business. This is only actionable if it's not true, so please come and sue me Antoni Wilk.
