In January 2019, Hemming successfully brought libel cases against Graham Wilmer, of the Lantern Project charity and David Hencke, a journalist who worked for Exaro. The pair paid over £10,000 between them after having admitted defaming Hemming on social media in relation to the false abuse allegations.


At the 2015 general election, Hemming lost Birmingham Yardley to Jess Phillips of the Labour Party by 6,595 votes. Hemming stood again as the Liberal Democrat candidate in his old seat at the 2017 general election, but was defeated by Jess Phillips who increased her majority.

In 2015, Esther Baker falsely accused Hemming of being part of a VIP paedophile ring that abused children in Staffordshire in the 1980s and 1990s. Staffordshire police refused to prosecute Baker for perverting the course of justice, claiming there was insufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction.


Hemming was born in Birmingham. His father was an electrical contractor and his mother a supply teacher. He was educated at King Edward's School, Birmingham, where he won the Rickard Prize for Arithmetic and was a Scholar specialising in Theoretical, Atomic and Nuclear Physics at Magdalen College, Oxford, where he showed an early interest in politics, standing as the Liberal Party candidate for Secretary of the Oxford University Student Union. He was beaten into fourth place by the "Silly Party" candidate – the pet dog of the master of St Catherine's College, Oxford.

A regular contributor to Mumsnet (a British parenting forum) for eleven years, Hemming posted in late-2013 about the case of an Italian woman sectioned in the UK with her newborn baby taken into care by UK Social Services.

Hemming criticised his political opponents from the Labour Party such as MP Jess Phillips for promoting the false allegations against him. He said: "Some members of the Labour Party, including my opponent in the last two General Elections, have invested considerable time in promoting these allegations. The promotion of the complainant as an expert in this subject area as a consequence of these allegations has caused additional difficulties for my family." Hemming went on to state: "I am not myself aware of another situation where members and supporters of a political party have promoted such allegations in such a public manner – essentially arming the villagers with torches and pitchforks and setting off on a lynching. There were public attempts to prevent me from standing as a candidate because of allegations made maliciously by a Labour Party member backed by other members of the Labour Party."


Hemming is a director of JHC plc, a provider of software applications and related services for the financial industry. Its products include trading, asset management and settlement systems for brokers and investment managers. JHC made Hemming a millionaire by the age of 27, and the company had an annual turnover of £12 million by 2011. In 2009, Hemming was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for his work with the company. In 1997, Hemming also set up his own record company, Music Mercia International.

On 23 May 2011, during a Commons debate; he mentioned Ryan Giggs as the footballer involved in one privacy injunction.

In the final meeting of the House of Commons in the summer of 2011 before the session closed for summer recess, he mentioned details of an injunction and alleged cover-up involving a doctor employed by a Welsh NHS trust. The said doctor is accused by a fellow doctor and surgical assistants of performing surgeries on cancer patients beyond his expertise, against guidelines and in so doing, endangering the lives of patients.

Hemming was an elected councillor for the South Yardley Ward and Group Chair of the Liberal Democrats on Birmingham City Council until 1 May 2008 and was elected as the Member of Parliament for Birmingham Yardley at the 2005 general election. He was the first Liberal to represent a Birmingham constituency since Wallace Lawler briefly held the seat after the 1969 Birmingham Ladywood by-election. In 2004, Hemming became deputy leader of Birmingham City Council in a deal where the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats formed a coalition to jointly administer the council.

When Kennedy subsequently resigned, Hemming said that he would stand to ensure there was a contest. Hemming was a rank outsider in the contest (some betting odds were in excess of 400–1). The Times reported that he was "an eccentric who left colleagues aghast by threatening to stand". On 13 January 2006, Hemming withdrew his candidature, saying that Lib Dem members did not believe he should stand. He was a nominator for Mark Oaten, but said he would be willing to do the same for any serious candidate. He subsequently declared for the eventual winner, Sir Menzies Campbell.


Shortly after his election in 2005, it was revealed that he was the father of a child with his personal assistant and (then) fellow councillor Emily Cox, although he continued to live with his wife and the couple's three children. His wife, Christine, commented that she forgave him and is standing by him, as he has always been honest about his extramarital affairs, of which she said this was "about number 26". Following the publication of details of his affairs, Hemming voted for himself for the News of the World's 'Love Rat of the Year' competition.
