UKIP NI got Assembly to pay libel bill…

Oh dear, David… 

January, the Assembly refused a Freedom of Information request from this newspaper which sought to reveal details of the MLA who had used the controversial policy, saying that details of the case were “clearly expected to remain confidential”.

But the News Letter has now established that it was Mr McNarry – Ukip’s leader in Northern Ireland – who used the Assembly insurance to foot a significant bill after he admitted defaming a journalist.
