Ukip Plead For Time To Cope With a warning of a High Court Writ served on Nigel Farage for his defamatory and libelous comments on Amjad Bashir broadcast on National TV.

this matter has been known of for some time but Amjad Bashire had not wished it to be in the general public domain therefore this blog had respected his wishes as clearly he was, as is so often the case with Ukip, the persecuted and maligned party.

Ukip’s Nigel Farage facing High Court threat from Amjad Bashir

UKIP leader Nigel Farage is facing legal action from an ex-UKIP MEP who defected to the Tories, the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire show has learned.

Amjad Bashir’s lawyers have written to Mr Farage asking him to publicly withdraw a range of allegations he made in January and pay damages.

The letter says otherwise he could face possible libel action in the High Court.

A UKIP spokesman said: “UKIP does not take part in trial by television.”

But it said it could not comment further while the legal case was ongoing.


Mr Bashir – MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber – joined the Conservatives in January, saying that UKIP had become a “party of ruthless self-interest” and had a “ridiculous” lack of policies.

But hours before his defection was to be made public he was suspended by UKIP, which said in a press release it was over “unanswered financial and employment questions”.

The following day, Mr Farage said he had become “increasingly alarmed” by Mr Bashir’s behaviour and that his “only surprise” was that the Conservative Party had accepted him as a member.

At the time Mr Bashir dismissed all the allegations – made on BBC One’s Andrew Marr programme and an interview on the Daily Telegraph and ITV websites – as “totally wrong” and an attempt to “muddy the waters”.

Mr Bashir appeared alongside UKIP leader Nigel Farage at the launch of the party’s 2014 local and European elections campaign

Now the Victoria Derbyshire programme has seen a nine-page legal letter from Mr Bashir’s solicitors, Atkins Thompson, sent in mid-March to Mr Farage and UKIP chairman Steve Crowther.

The letter says: “There can be no other conclusion that [the allegations] were published as part of a deliberate campaign on the part of UKIP and its most senior officers to discredit Mr Bashir in retaliation for his decision to join the Conservative Party.”

It demands that a press release detailing the allegations is removed from the UKIP website; that an apology to Mr Bashir is made in open court; and that damages and legal costs are paid.

“Contrary to the impression given by the press release, [Mr Bashir] had no forewarning of what UKIP had decided to allege,” the letter says.

In a statement, Mr Bashir said: “As soon as the various allegations were made it became clear that I had no choice but to pursue legal advice.

“I have taken that advice, we have compiled a case, and this now remains in the hands of my lawyers.”

He said he would not comment further on the case while it is still ongoing.

The BBC understands that lawyers representing both Mr Farage and Mr Crowther have asked for extra time to consider the letter and will respond by mid-April.

I must say Ukip’s response that they thought the letters were private and they didn’t expect the media to get hold of copies begs the question ‘and what other problems do they not expect the media to get hold of’?
