Only one complaint about Mr Flanagan has been found admissible so far, which was his re-tweeting of the following joke; "The news says that the duchess doll entered the hospital by the back entrance. If William had done the same we wouldn’t have to suffer this balls.” Although the NI Assembly Commissioner for Standards thought it worth investigating he determined Flanagan had not broken the Code of Conduct for MLAs.
In his report the commissioner was critical of Mr Flanagan, stating that "while Mr Flanagan’s retweet was offensive it was a crude ‘joke’ which demeaned Mr Flanagan rather than the Royal Family." He also stated that it was "hard to accept" when Mr Flanagan claimed "that he initially believed the original tweet to be an innocent joke." He went on to say his "explanation may in the eyes of some have cast doubt on Mr Flanagan’s integrity."
During the Assembly election on 5 May 2016 Mr Flanagan polled 3,449 first preference votes, lost his seat and was the first Sinn Féin candidate to be eliminated from the count.
After stepping away from politics after losing his MLA seat in 2016 Mr Flanagan became the Vice Chair of the County Fermanagh GAA Board in December 2016. In June 2018 Mr Flanagan was awarded over five thousand pounds in damages when he was discriminated against by Citizens Advice on grounds of his political opinion.
After Mr Elliott was made aware of the tweet his solicitors contacted Mr Flanagan asking for an apology and damages but received no reply. Mr Elliott then issued legal proceedings in June 2014 which resulted in Mr Flanagan agreeing that he would publish an apology on Twitter and that damages should be agreed. Although agreeing to offer an apology and agree damages this never materialised and Mr Elliott proceeded to court to enforce the agreement that was made. This came to court in January 2016. On 8 January 2016 Mr Flanagan agreed, in court, to apologise and pay compensation and legal costs to Mr Elliott over the defamatory message posted on Twitter. The apology which was posted on Twitter read: "On May 1st 2014 I posted a tweet alleging that Tom Elliott was responsible for harassing and shooting people during his service with the UDR. I now accept this was untrue and wholly without foundation and I apologise for all offence caused."
The damages were not decided on until 3 February 2016. The Judge awarded damages of £75,000 because of the serious nature of the defamation, Mr Flanagan initially ignoring Mr Elliott's solicitors, his refusal to offer an apology until the date of the hearing and his failure to make an offer of compensation. The judge than reduced the award by 35% which brought it down to £48,750 because of Mr Flanagan's apology and offer to use the amends procedure. The Judge said he would have reduced it by "fifty percent if the response had been in an appropriate timescale, if the defendant had actually published the apology and if he had offered a realistic amount in compensation.” The Stormont Assembly insurers, AIG, refused to indemnify Mr Flanagan for the damages or costs of the case so he sued them. On 1 June 2016, Mr Justice Stevens ruled that AIG did not have to cover him as the comments about Elliott were clearly defamatory. The result of the 1 June ruling meant Flanagan must pay the £48,750 to Elliott, all Elliott's legal expenses in his case, and all of AIG's expenses in their case. He also has to pay his own expenses from both cases.
A week after losing his MLA seat in May 2016 Mr Flanagan said he was unable to pay the damages owed to Mr Elliott and as such he was "not going to lose too much sleep over it." In June 2018 Tom Elliott, former MP for Fermanagh and South Tyrone, announced that he had not received any money from Mr Flanagan and urged him to honour his debt to him. Mr Elliott cited the £20,000 payment Phil Flanagan received when he lost his MLA seat and the £5,865 he got in damages in an Employment Tribunal in June 2018.
In December 2015 it was announced that Mr Flanagan would not run in the May 2016 Assembly elections when he failed to gain the necessary support from delegates at a Fermanagh South Tyrone constituency selection convention. In January 2016, at a re-convened selection convention, he was put back on the party ticket at the expense of Michelle Gildernew. In February 2016 Sinn Féin decided to run an extra candidate in Fermanagh South Tyrone and the extremely popular Gildernew was added back on to party ticket.
On 1 May 2014, Flanagan tweeted the following comment; “Tom Elliot talks to @StephenNolan about the past. I wonder if he will reveal how many people he harassed or shot as a member of the UDR.” He removed the tweet one hour later after it was seen by 167 of his followers with six of them re-tweeting it.
Flanagan also served as a councillor on Fermanagh District Council following his co-option in 2009 and re-election in May 2011. He resigned from his council seat in August 2011 in line with Sinn Féin party policy on dual mandates and was subsequently replaced on the council by Stephen Huggett. Flanagan originally from Garrison, County Fermanagh, lives in Tempo. Educated at St Michael's College, Enniskillen, he is a former retail manager and small-business owner.
