Alan Hardy on UKIP's defeat in the Appeal Court

Another costly legal defeat for UKIP. Another £16,000 of member's money thrown away in a single day!

And all because Farage's ego wouldn't let him accept that UKIP had been in the wrong when they unlawfully tried to ban Mr Hardy from meetings and expel him from the party.

And all because Farage refused to pay a paltry £750 in damages to Mr Hardy!

Would Nigel have been so keen to fight this case if he had been using money from his own bank account?

Remember what Bannerman said:

Nigel's taste for pursuing personal vendettas on the party’s credit account, has led to a legal bill running at £140,000 a year.

And now Mr Hardy's statement:

Hello everyone,

Well, UKIP's barrister - fine man that he is - argued and argued yesterday in Court 74, Court of Appeal...unsuccessfully. It's now official: those within UKIP who are so inclined cannot do what they like; they are bound by the law like the rest of us.

Nigel Farage turned up, accompanied by a lady of, shall I say, ample bosom, who I took to be some form of assistant. He disappeared before the proceedings commenced, without having even acknowledged me. She, however, remained and I saw her and Parkin, who was also there, cosying up to one another behind me in the court room. There was also a short, very fat, grey-beared man hovering around the place, clearly as part of the opposing side's team. Does anyone recognise the description?

Anyway, that's it in a nutshell. Where they are planning on going from hereon is anyone's guess. Oh, I almost forgot, when the barrister, the wheelchair-bound Mr Engelman (Trinity Chambers), was asked about the costs he quoted a figure of £16,000 in total. Somehow I find myself doubting that...
