Tim Yeo Loses Libel Action Against Sunday Times

Tim Yeo

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.

Quote of the Day

Quentin Letts says…

“I have had 18 busy and exhilarating years with the Mail and can only thank the paper’s readers and editors, and Lord Rothermere, for their generosity.”
