    UKIP ordered to pay Labour MPs 175,000 in damages.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 20 Mar 2018, 11:22 am

    UKIP has been ordered to pay 175,000 in legal costs over a defamation case brought by three South Yorkshire Labour MPs.

    The party was told to pay towards costs incurred by Rotherham MPs Sir Kevin Barron, John Healey and Sarah Champion.

    Jane Collins, MEP for Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire, had made remarks about Rotherham's child abuse scandal.

    She was ordered to give 54,000 to each MP in February 2017, but did not pay.

    The interim payment order comes days after the party's leader, Gerard Batten, issued a plea for cash for the party, saying 100,000 must be raised by the end of March.

    It looks again that the UKIP party does not have to go far to get more problems on top of the problems they already have.

    Is this party now destined for the scrap heap, I wonder.

    Yes, it is dying the death of a thousand cuts at the moment.

    If UKIP are owing money that has been awarded to someone they have wronged then if they do pay up the bailiffs should be sent in.

    Ordinary individuals would quickly find themselves getting a visit from The Sheriff's Officers, so why not a political party ?

    That is a good question Angie.

    But sadly the rules for us go by the standard that says "There is those and then there is such as those".

    Even if UKIP goes bottoms up, we will still have to put up with Farage trying to hog the limelight, in the same way that Blair has crawled out of the woodwork again to pontificate.

    Yes Farage is still a working MEP, even although his support via UKIP no longer exists.

    I think that Farage has been pushed out of any of the influencing discussions in the European parliament and that his political life is now drawing to an unavoidable close.

    I cannot disagree with that HG.

    I doubt very much if Farage will be re-elected as an MEP - as an independent - as he will just not get the support he may need from the more right-wing ex-UKIP members.

    Like Blair, his political career is fast going down the tubes.

    As we won't need MEP's soon, he's talked himself out of two jobs!

    Dead right HG.

    The EU MEP salary was just another level of income that was available to the British political types.
