I wanted you to be the first to know:
Nigel Farage has acknowledged that his remarks about HOPE not hate were untrue and has promised to never repeat them again.
As you will recall, we were due to present our case to the High Court this week.
Instead, after many months in dogged pursuit of the truth, we have emerged victorious. And there is no understating what a significant victory this is.
We took on this fight because for too long politicians like Farage and Trump have been able to say what they want with impunity - regardless of its accuracy or consequences. But we said no more.
We wanted to make sure that if they say something untrue and damaging - they're going to have to answer for it.
This is a victory not only for HOPE not hate, but for everyone who has come up against right wing attacks and smears.
We could never have taken on this case alone. Our courage and conviction to pursue this action was in no small part down to the vast number of people who demonstrated their support and said "we'll stand with you" as we took on the difficult task of fighting for justice.
And in true HOPE not hate form, our victory came from our collective strength. Your donations powered and sustained us as Farage tried to run out the clock and have our case thrown out of court. You stepped up time and again to allow us to continue this important fight.
Myself and the entire HOPE not hate organisation are so grateful to the 16,432 incredibly generous supporters who made this possible.

We emerge from this victory with renewed motivation. Let this be a message to anyone out there who engages in false news and smears - we will take you on, and we will win.
We'll be in touch soon with more about our plans to make this victory count.
Thank you so much,
