Ouch! £21,833.62 down in one whack.
I am pleased to be able to announce that my good friend Mark Collett has won his case against Adam Walker, the hapless BNP Staff Manager.
Last autumn Adam Walker signed a legal agreement with Mark Collett to pay off back-pay and expenses owed to him by monthly instalments. After the fake ‘threats to kill’ allegations in March 2010, Mark Collett was not legally sacked for a number of months but at the same time was not paid. This situation was eventually resolved by Adam Walker signing the agreement. However after a few payments here and there, the agreement was soon broken.
Adam Walker had to meet the liability personally. However Adam Walker was given some clemency by Judge after he claimed to have been left in the lurch by honest Nick Griffin.
The final judgement was that Adam Walker must pay £21,833.62.
This is made up of £14,250.00 owed to Mark Collett with an extra £250.02 in interest because of the delay. Due to the frivolous defence that Adam Walker was persuaded to mount, he was also saddled with a further £7,333.60 in costs.
It should be noticed that had the party paid up on time it would have saved £7,583.62 straight away. If they had sacked Mark Collett in March 2010, instead of delaying for several months, they would have saved, with office expenses, at least a further £8,000 or so. In otherwords pure negligence cost over £15,500. Or the membership subs of about 450 members. Flushed down the toilet.
