  1. Kenneth Clarke QC MP has proposed reforms to the UK’s defamation laws that would make “truth” a complete defence and which would limit awards to provable damages. There is no serious opposition to this, except from the lawyers.

  2. But, as I understand it, “I spoke truth” will continue to be a valid defence even under the revised law. So a blogger who writes things which are true, even if unflattering or inconvenient to the plaintiff, will still be in no danger of having to pay damages.

  3. Can you believe that even Abe Foxman agrees?
    Things must be getting really bad…

    “When, however, laws are passed that stifle free expression, seek to undermine the independence of the judiciary and, in the name of defending a Jewish state, seek to undermine the rights of Arabs and other minorities, then the very democratic character of the state is being eroded,” wrote Foxman.
