^What were the biggest hurdles you had to overcome in this case?^
Obtaining key documentary evidence, which required repeated applications for disclosure — made all the more difficult because of the pandemic. Funding the case was also tricky, but thankfully Sonia received support from the public via CrowdJustice a month before trial.

It's well merited as an award.

I am deeply irritated that public money was spent on attempting to defend this action and in foot-dragging about the release of documents.

What is your favourite book, film, pop song?
Simulacra and Simulation by Jean Baudrillard because it explains what is now happening to our society

Yes - although not my favourite, I agree about the insight.
