Wife Orders Tory Councillor Who Tweeted Satirical Liverpool Terrorist Attack Picture to Pay Corbyn

Conservative councillor Paul Nickerson – who posted a satirical picture of Corbyn carrying a Remembrance wreath towards the burning Liverpool terrorist attack taxi with the caption “Unsurprising” – has agreed to pay the Islington North MP “substantial damages”. The amount Nickerson agreed to pay has not been disclosed, however according to Jeremy Corbyn Paul will “pay substantial damages and legal costs”. Corbyn will use this “substantial” settlement to support charities close to his heart…

In a statement published to twitter the Conservative councillor explained:

“The false photograph (…) gave the completely untrue impression that Jeremy Corbyn supports terrorist violence including suicide bombings, which without any hesitation I wholly accept he does not.” 

Corbyn of course has sided with terrorists over and over again. It can’t be stressed enough that this did not go to Court, nor did Nickerson take formal legal advice. Guido doubts Corbyn would have won in Court because it is clearly satire. Nickerson told Guido that he decided to settle after his wife told him to pay up…

Corbyn Suing Tory Councillor Over Satirical Liverpool Terrorist Attack Picture

Jeremy Corbyn is taking legal action against Tory councillor Paul Nickerson for posting a satirical picture of the Islington North MP carrying a Remembrance wreath towards the burning Liverpool terrorist attack taxi with the caption “Unsurprising”. The post – which received a huge amount of backlash – has since been deleted and Nickerson has apologised and written to Corbyn claiming that his account was “compromised” and the offending picture posted by somebody else. That old one…

Since the incident Mr Nickerson has been suspended by his council’s Conservative group. Leader of the East Riding Council Conservative group Jonathan Owen, said:

“All people in public life, irrespective of politics, should be united in condemning the terrorist attack that took place outside the Liverpool Women’s Hospital on Remembrance Sunday. It is not the time for inappropriate remarks, however intended, and they will not be tolerated in this Conservative Group.” 

Corbyn told his local newspaper the Islington Gazette

“My solicitor has been notified and we are taking legal action.”

Looks like Corbyn will be both present and involved in a lawsuit…
