Bad case

A crowdfunder to support Jeremy Corbyn in a libel case has raised over £300,000 from over 16,000 people in less than five days.

BBC reporter John Ware has instructed a lawyer to sue the former Labour leader over comments Corbyn made in July after the Labour party stopped defending itself in a case brought by Ware and seven former party employees.

Corbyn said that the choice to issue apologies and pay six-figure sums to the eight came from ‘a political decision, not a legal one’. He added: ‘Our legal advice was that the party had a strong defence.’
