If they actually get the job done £46.2m would probably be a bit of a bargain.

[edit] I looked it up, what they're doing now (ie. not enough) is costing £120m!

Vince Cable will stand down as Lib Dem leader in May. I'd quite forgotten he was their leader.

This is actually a really interesting defamation case for lawyers. I can’t wait to read the Judgement.

As much as I'd be copacetic with Campbell's off the cuff nastiness on social media catching up with him, this specific charge feels like a stretch to me.

It's very clearly not homophobic. What I don't know is how well that translates into a 25 grand call for defamation damages.

Maybe he would accept the winnings at a rate of £2 per month.

Sounds like it's going well

Quote:
Mr Dunlop reads our previous tweets from Mr Campbell saying David Mundell “looks like a tramp” and a “sack of turds”; aren’t these abusive, he asks? Mr Campbell says he can’t remember the detail or context from the time, he’s sent up to 400,000 tweets over the years

Mr Dunlop reads more Wings tweets calling Ruth Davidson a “dribblewit” and a “mouth-breathing dolt”; doesn’t Mr Campbell agree these are abusive tweets? “They’re rude”, Mr Campbell says - they were “provoked”.

Mr Dunlop reads another Wings tweet about his Bath MP, saying “die you c**t”. Isn’t this “abusive”? Mr Campbell says the tweet is “extremely angry”. He says the tweet is a “justified response in context” - he disagrees with Mr Dunlop that this is abusive.

Quote:
Just in case things weren’t contentious enough, the court is now getting into whether Mr Campbell thinks Chelsea Manning is a woman or not. Mr Dunlop says if Mr Campbell is entitled to the view that Chelsea Manning is a man, aren’t others entitled to the view that CM is a woman?

Mr Campbell says “if I proclaim I’m Napoleon, am I? If I proclaim I’m black, am I?” He says people “should be allowed to live their lives however they want”, but he objects to “people ordering me” to say something he doesn’t believe is true - that Chelsea Manning is a woman.
...
Back to the video game comment about “girls and homosexuals”, which was mentioned earlier; Mr Dunlop says this was “demeaning and offensive”. Mr Campbell says he was writing “ironically and satirically”, and would have been understood to be by any reader of that site at the time

I can't believe he's still at it. I'm amazed he hasn't become tired of it. I mean, how hard must it be to stay that angry for that long?

He’s gone very badly wrong. I’ll never forget that Sensible Soccer review, but he’s basically dead to me now.

Have they brought up his tweets/rants about Hillsborough yet? They usually get an airing when people are discussing how much of an arse he is.

Holy crap, this sounds like the best trial ever. Do we know how many days it’s listed for? Perhaps we could organise a car pool to go along for the remainder.

I think it's fascinating how he's willing to stand by his every word. I think he's an intelligent guy, I don't think there's any doubt about that, but he's so misaligned.
