Absolutely but we all have our responsibilities and I think there is widespread ignorance of how the defamation laws work.

Tell us more BJ? Sounds like you are in the know.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I’d love him to try claiming defamation. It will cost him quite a lot in legal bills.

Au contraire Rob I am reasonably conversant with the implications of the Defamation Act 2013 and there 3 conditions that have to be met to successfully argue a fair comment defence. Without boring you with a lot of legalise perhaps the most pertinent is the authority set by the ruling in Joseph v Spiller.In brief the  2013 Act made it much easier for the respondent to have a common law defence of ''Fair Comment'.Your call.


Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day,teach a man to fish and you give him an excuse for him to escape from the wife and kids for the weekend and drink lots of beer.

To be fair to Rob he did show the responsibilities of both respondent and claimant.

If Fenty took any of us to court he would have no chance:

In the Blue corner, weighing in at £2m pounds, John ‘Reckless’ Fenty...

A man who caused the club to pay compensation as a result of ‘accidentally’ tapping up employees of another company via an untrustworthy agent

That’d be the icing in the cake. Further humiliation for him. All self-inflicted.

Yes, not something one of his mates could do. And even if he wins he would realistically only claim back 60% of his costs.
