What statement is thoroughly disingenuous? That he has had to withdraw his remarks or that he made false claims?

Huf Post,
Farage said he was ?very surprised? by HnH?s announcement, calling it ?some victory?, adding that its statement on the win was ?thoroughly disingenuous?.

?But the fact is that a number of individuals claiming to support them in the past behaved violently and sought to intimidate and disrupt lawful political meetings,? Farage wrote on Twitter.
He added that the charity should never have launched the court action, ?which has been a complete waste of their donors? money?, before making clear just how small a win he believed they had achieved.?
?Despite them demanding ?100,000 in damages I have not paid them a penny; they demanded an apology that I have not given; and they demanded an undertaking to the Court which they did not get. In addition, they have been forced to pay me thousands in costs, on top of the tens of thousands they will have had to pay their own legal fees?.?
HnH disputed they had paid Farage?s costs, telling HuffPost UK they had simply covered their own legal fees. ?
