    Dear Mr Bradley

    OUR CLIENT: RT HON JEREMY CORBYN MP
    DEFAMATORY TWEET

    We act for the Rt Hon Jeremy Corbyn MP.

    This is a Letter of Claim for the purposes of the Pre-action Protocol for Defamation. The prospective Claimant is our client, the Rt Hon Jeremy Corbyn MP. The prospective Defendant is you, Mr Ben Bradley MP.

    Yesterday, 19 February 2018, you published the following tweet on your Twitter account, Ben Bradley MP (@bbradleymp):

    “Corbyn sold British secrets to communist spies...get some perspective mate!! Your priorities are a bit awry! # AreYouSerious”

    Your statement that our client sold British secrets to communist spies is untrue. The inference that our client, whom you know to be the Leader of Her Majesty’s Official Opposition and the Leader of the Labour Party, had engaged in criminal acts of treachery and spying could not be more seriously harmful of a British citizen, let alone such a prominent politician. As the vice-chairman of the Conservative Party you are fully aware of the serious harm that was caused or was likely to be caused to our client’s reputation by your defamatory statement.

    The natural and ordinary meaning of your words is that our client engaged in criminal activity at the most serious level. For example, espionage and serious breaches of the Official Secrets Act 1911; that he acted in a manner which was/is prejudicial to the safety or interests of the United Kingdom; that he colluded with representatives of the secret services of foreign states to the detriment of the national interests of the United Kingdom, putting its citizens and its allies at serious risk of harm by passing confidential secret information to foreign agents/intelligence officers. Furthermore the natural and ordinary meaning of your words is that our client made financial gain for such criminal acts and espionage.

    Our client’s reputation has been or is likely to be seriously harmed by your publication of the offending tweet and by re-tweets. Furthermore, your tweet has been quoted in full in the Guardian newspaper, the Mirror newspaper, the Huffington Post, Sky News, the Mail Online and has been paraphrased in other national print newspapers, and online, which is unsurprising given your own high profile within the Conservative Party and your status as an MP.

    Our client instructed us yesterday evening and we advised his office to put out an immediate statement notifying you and others of the fact that he had taken legal advice and that the tweet should be deleted from your Twitter account. We note that you have removed the tweet but nevertheless serious harm has been caused by your libellous statement.

    Next Steps

    Our client requires you to immediately agree to take the following steps:

    1. Provide a written undertaking, in terms to be agreed with us, that you will not repeat the defamatory statement identified above in your offending tweet or utter or publish any allegations/statements to similar effect about our client on Twitter or on any other social media platform or in any other form both written and oral.

    2. Immediately agree to publish on your Twitter account an apology, in terms to be agreed with us, and with the additional statement that you will ask your followers to retweet your apology.

    3. Agree to pay a sum of money direct to a charity of our client’s choice, in lieu of damages payable to our client for the injury you have caused to his reputation and also for the embarrassment and distress caused to him by your defamatory statement. We invite your proposals by return with regard to the amount that you will pay which we would expect to be substantial, as our client’s attitude towards the level of payment will take into account the speed with which you make sensible proposals or not. Our client does not seek any personal financial benefit from this litigation and if you force him to issue proceedings and recover substantial damages through the courts he will donate the damages to a charity of his choice.

    4. Pay our client’s legal costs incurred in relation to this matter. If you delay the resolution of this case our client will commence legal proceedings against you in the High Court and our client will seek from you not only his basic legal costs but also a success fee (as our client has agreed a Conditional Fee Agreement which provides for a success fee) and payment of an after the event insurance premium. If proceedings are commenced legal costs payable by you will increase significantly, especially if the matter proceeds to a full trial. Your swift agreement to the matters set out in the numbered paragraphs above will assist you in limiting your exposure to our client’s legal costs. Any failure by you to respond swiftly will undoubtedly mean that our client’s legal costs will increase significantly.

    We look forward to your immediate and positive response. If there is any delay our client reserves the right to commence legal proceedings against you for damages and ancillary relief for defamation without further notice. In that event, our client will rely on the terms of this letter and the lack of an adequate response, by drawing your conduct to the attention of the Court.

    Please indicate if you intend to nominate solicitors to accept service of proceedings on your behalf, should you seek to defend this claim.

    Also is this the same vid posted last page?

    Except that at the time Corbyn is (repeatedly) on record for stating that he hated both the Soviets and the US, because both were a threat to world peace.

    Yes, it may sound strange to our 'Merican friends out there, but it is entirely possible to be a socialist and not be a communist, and/or not like Stalin(ism).

    Although someone should definitely point this out to Seamus Milne.
    Oh, he SAID he hated the Soviets, and no one engaged in illicit activity would EVER say something but DO something else, lol.

    Of course it's possible to be a Socialist and not a Communist. Most of this forum is some form of Socialist, very very few are legit Communists (IMO). Well, and one or two legit Anarchists.

    Let me be clear, before an argument forms, I don't care what Corbyn did, I was having a laugh in the post above, nothing more, because some days you simply have to have a laugh.

    Ted Kennedy, and his actions and career, are often good IMO for that laugh in light of current circumstances and issues people are all frothy over.

    The dude has made a career out of saying that ... at least he's consistent on that ...

    And no, most of this forum is not some form of Socialist ... and, as most 'Mericans, you have no clue what a Communist is, or how they differ from Stalinists or Socialists, let alone Social-Democrats ...

    Why don't you stick to parrotting the GOP talking point memos? You'll sound like a dick alright, but you revel in that; and at least won't show your cluelessness as much ...

    Oh well, on the list you go too.

    To what end?

    Socialist/Socialism has a definition.

    Are you expecting that I would give you an answer outside the definition, thus exposing lolstupidAlistair?

    I mean, if I was spending time on a forum on which I'd muted six of the most active members, I'd question whether or not my time was well spent there.

    Most Active =/= Best

    But it's a fair point.

    Quantity has a quality of its own - I guess that makes you a Stalinist.

    Quantity of anything of any value at all has a quality of its own.

    It is still very much useless shit, even if there's 50 thousand instances of it.
