Internet loony Tim Ireland is facing a £150,000 legal bill after the High Court threw out his petition to have Nadine Dorries’ election in Mid-Bedfordshire voided.
According to the BBC: “Judges threw out case as Ireland was late filing his papers”.
Tim Ireland burst into tears after the ruling…
Nadine’s lawyers speak:
“This petition was part of Mr Ireland’s continued campaign of harassment against our client. Our client believes that the petition was maliciously brought and had no merit. We are pleased that the right outcome, namely dismissal of the petition, was achieved. Our client was elected with a very clear majority and, with this petition now dismissed (and with the petitioner not having sought to appeal) she can continue with her job of representing the people of Mid Bedfordshire.”
