Tim Yeo has lost his libel action against the Sunday Times. A very happy Jonathan Calvert, the journalist who wrote the original story along with Heidi Blake, tells Guido:
“We won on every count and judge used the following words to describe Yeo’s evidence: “implausible”, “unreliable”, “not honest”,”dishonest”, “untruthful”, “untrue” and “unworthy of belief”.”
Shades of Aitken and Archer…
UPDATE: Yeo has to make a costs down payment to The Sunday Times of £411,000 within 28 days.
