Every Writ Is A Risk

Lord McAlpine is apparently thinking of suing Alan Davies. Alan Davies is quite popular (I think). The more people McAlpine sues the greater the chance he'll light on someone the public really likes- and the worm will turn. Or someone really articulate and clever who will hit back. Then we'll remember that Lord M isn't just a dewy-eyed old codger who has been grievously wronged but also a millionaire Thatcherite who once wrote a book about applying the principles of Machiavelli to contemporary business life.
