Jeremy Corbyn launches legal action against Nigel Farage

JEREMY CORBYN announced today that he is taking legal action against Nigel Farage for making “highly defamatory” comments.

The former Labour leader has instructed lawyers to take the first steps in legal proceedings against Mr Farage, after the GB News host made a “disgusting” statement about him on the network last week.

It is not specified what statement Mr Corbyn is referring to. However, it comes just days after Mr Farage aired a segment in which he accused Mr Corbyn of subscribing to an anti-semitic conspiracy theory. 

Posting on Twitter, Mr Corbyn wrote: “We are a movement for peace — and we cannot stand by and let these disgusting and malicious lies go unchallenged.” 

The announcement comes just hours after watchdog Ofcom ruled that Laurence Fox’s misogynistic remarks about journalist Ava Evans, aired on GB News in September, violated broadcasting regulations. 

Ofcom has said it has “significant concerns about GB News’s editorial control of its live output.”
