Nigel Farage £100,000 out of pocket in legal fees.
This month Hope Not Hate (a peaceful campaigning organisation whose aims are to create greater harmony in communities) declared a victory against Nigel Farage in the High Court.
His remarks last December in reference to Hope Not Hate being 'violent and undemocratic’ were a deceitful slur against the organisation and after costly legal proceedings he now acknowledges the fact.
It has been confirmed in the media, Farage filed a statement with the high court in London saying he was
“happy to acknowledge that Hope Not Hate does not
tolerate or pursue violent or undemocratic behaviour”
and that he would not repeat the claim.
Hope Not Hate gave him a fair chance to withdraw the comments hence avoiding any legal wrangling. Farage familiar with other libel actions ignored the offer.
This could mean the end of the 'lime light' for Farage the controvesial ex UKIP figurehead. His disregard for honest and fair political debate cost him around £100,000 in legal fees and means that he cannot be trusted when interviewed by the media to give an honest representation of facts.
