Paul Flynn on libel.

My house flipping MP, the deluded old duffer Paul Flynn MP is at it again. Talking about libel, and despite his losing a libel case he seems to regard him self as some sort of authority on that subject. Now I would assume winning would be better, rather than losing but still this is his la la fantasy world.

Now in Flynn's case and points he misses on his webshyte, is that he made some utter arsewater comments about a company called Endowment Justice and how they were all out nasty folk.

Needless to say they were a tad miffed at an MP acting like that and asked him to retract his comments, even pointing out where he had gone wrong. Flynn being his usual aged, pig headed self refused and off to court it went. No need to check facts, after all this is Paul Flynn.

In due time it was decided that the Rt Hon. Paul Flynn MP, was indeed an utter arse and judgement was found for Endowment Justice.

Now unlike the little guys who can get utterly crushed by a libel case, Mr Flynn was an MP and charged you and me(the taxpayers of this land) for his legal expenses. Now remember that he was given the chance to avoid this and could have easily retracted at any time before going to court, but no not Flynn. So a loss for Flynn an the shafted taxpayers.
Anyway the Grauniad have some more.

Flynn gave us this gem tonight on his webshyte:
The libel warriors are unleashed again.
The Sunday Times rang me as a past victim of a libel actions designed to shut up those speaking important truths. The Sunday Times' report tomorrow that " General Electric, one of the world’s biggest corporations, is using the London libel courts to gag a senior radiologist after he raised the alarm over the potentially fatal risks of one of its drugs.
Best of all was this howler from Flynn "At the first opportunity I will remind parliament of the expensive way that my mouth was bandaged by a libel action.", that's okay Flynn, you did some bandaging and gagging yourself quickly removing from your webshyte the apology you put up.

As for the Sunday Times, maybe next they will be seeing advise from Lucius Aemilius Paulus on fighting Hannibal at the Battle of Cannae

Here is Flynn's apology that he agreed to put on his website and which vanished in double quick time.
On this website in February this year, I made certain statements referring to Endowment Justice Limited, one of the companies which offers assistance in obtaining compensation for those people who were mis-sold endowment policies. I have been campaigning against companies providing professional services in relation to endowment policy compensation claims, but my facts about Endowment Justice were incorrect.
As a result, I wrongly accused the company and its directors Nick Keca, Marianne Fitzjohn and Graeme Webber of having previously mis-sold endowment policies and now dishonestly overcharging those self-same victims to help them obtain compensation. I am happy to clarify that neither Endowment Justice Ltd or any of its directors were ever involved in any aspect of endowment policy selling.
It was therefore false and unfair to suggest that they had profited from the historic mis-selling of endowment policies. I was also incorrect in stating that Endowment Justice, which offers its services in recovering compensation on a “no-win, no-fee” basis, could charge its customers up to 40% of any compensation gained. Endowment Justice in fact charge customers 17.5% plus VAT or 22.5% plus VAT of any compensation gained.
It was wrong to give the unintended impression that the company or its directors acts in any way improperly or unlawfully in providing services to those seeking compensation for endowment policy mis-selling. I would like to apologise to Endowment Justice for my allegations, and to Mr. Keca, Ms. Fitzjohn and Mr. Webber for any embarrassment or distress caused by my false remarks.

I think if this is in and was said in the public domain he could be taken again by the original mortgage company, and I bet they would.

You cannot abuse the law like this and get away with it, especially in his position, maybe they should be told?
