Nigel Farage puts forward his viewpoint on LBC radio [Image: LBC, published on the Independent’s website].

It seems Nigel Farage and his supporters really don’t know when to shut up.

In response to the announcement that Hope Not Hate has launched a crowdfunding campaign to sue Nigel Farage over highly inflammatory comments he made about the organisation and the late MP Jo Cox’s widower Brendan, the Independent has reported that a ‘source’ close to Mr Farage has complained.

Apparently this person thinks it is inappropriate for the organisation, which describes its aims as “[to] challenge and defeat the politics of hate and extremism within local communities, [and] building resilience against the politics of hate and fear, at a national and grassroots level” to seek public help.

He is quoted as follows: “It’s quite funny, in an ironic way, that an organisation in receipt of a huge sum of money from the Jo Cox Fund is now crowd-sourcing an attempted legal action.”

But the money from members of the public, who wished to show solidarity with Mrs Cox’s family, was intended to help Hope Not Hate in its work – not to be drained off into a court case against a loudmouthed hate politician.

So Hope Not Hate is entirely justified in seeking public funds for the prosecution – more so because it gives us all a chance to show the odious Farage what we really think of him.

Anti-fascist campaign group Hope Not Hate has launched a crowd-funding campaign to sue Nigel Farage after he referred to them as “extremists” who “masquerade as being lovely and peaceful but actually pursue violent and very undemocratic means”.

The organisation’s director, Nick Lowles, announced on Twitter it had written to the former Ukip leader demanding he withdraw the claims or face legal action.

Hope Not Hate has now launched a public fundraising website to cover the costs of taking Mr Farage to court.
