Leading ‘Left’ Lexit anti-EU Campaigner, George Galloway, pays out Libel Damages to Aisha Ali-Khan.
How the Galloway ‘left’ Campaign to Leave kicked off.
Our old friend George Galloway had been quiet during the last stages of the European Referendum.
After a sparkling start, which saw the dapper gent appear with Nigel Farage in a united front, we heard little of the Respect leader.
The one-time star of Parliament, and international statesman, had been reduced to retweeting others, such as Steve Hedley, the ally of French Trotskyist micro-party, Daniel Gluckstein’s Parti ouvrier indépendant démocratique and their ‘internationalist’ rally in support of Brexit in Paris.
Now we know why:
The Independent reports,
The former MP withdrew his allegations against Aisha Ali-Khan and agreed to pay damages along with legal costs.
Ms Ali-Khan brought libel proceedings in London’s High Court after the Respect Party leader published a statement on his website in October 2012.
One notes nevertheless that Galloway has now returned to play an active role in the ‘Lexit’ campaign.
His presence on the Lexit side will no doubt inspire many to follow their ideals.
