Banks demands Verhofstadt deletes 'defamatory' tweet about mythical Russian money

Europhile crony Guy Verhofstadt has been ordered to withdraw his outrageous claim that Nigel Farage and Arron Banks, as well as other anti-establishment figures, have colluded with the Russians.

Verhofstadt tweeted:

Fake news alert or what?! Arron Banks has replied:

Banks’s lawyers, Mishcon de Reya, replied to Verhofstadt, saying: “Anyone reading the tweet would be left in no doubt that it defames our client. Please now delete the tweet and tweet a retraction.”

Banks told Reuters: “We are not funded by the Russians. If he does not retract the statement, we will go ahead and sue him for defamation. So he can save himself a whole load of time and money and just retract it.”

This is just an outrageous, defamatory lie and, at the time of writing, it still hasn’t been removed. Are the Europhiles now relying on fake news because they realise it’s the only way they could ever drum up support in an increasingly anti-Brussels continent? It’s desperate.
