Go, Sally, Go

I see Sally Berkow has hired Carter Ruck to fight her corner against Lord McAlpine. Good. That's excellent news. 

Did she libel him? She contends she didn't. What she did (and what many of us did in the madness of the moment) was point to a very large grey thing that was squatting in the middle of the room snuffling up peanuts with its long prehensile nose and ask, "Is that an elephant I see before me?"

The BBC and ITV were among those who asked that question but they both crumbled as soon as Lord M hiccoughed in their direction- which means it's left to a private individual (who doesn't have a large pot of other people's money to draw on to appease him) to test the matter in court.  Cheer her on, people, She's doing it for all of us who want the Internet to be about something other than "liking" Justin Bieber.
