Daily Mail forced to apologise

I won! Justice prevailed!

It took two years to gain vindication and the apology that the Islam-intolerant Mail on Sunday / Daily Mail owed me for libelling and slandering me so badly, but I finally got my apology and the Mail had to pay my legal costs and a substantial sum in damages. The Mail can bury its apology far from the front page and try to pass it off as a minor matter, but its apology and payment of costs and personal damages represent a major loss.

The apology states:


"On 7 and 8 August 2011 we suggested that the beliefs of Dr Joel Hayward, then the Dean of the RAF College Cranwell, prevented him from fulfilling his duty of impartiality and fairness as a teacher in the RAF by causing him to show undue favouritism to Islamic students and spend too much time on Islamic activities. We now accept that these allegations are untrue.  We apologise to Dr Hayward and have paid a substantial sum to him in damages."

I wish to thank my tenacious and skilful libel lawyers, the brilliant Carter-Ruck of London, for the masterful way in which they pursued justice and vindication for me.
