    Haha.

    Some people at the BCA must be feeling very silly for trying to challenge the Singh article in the first place. People in glass houses etc...

    but does this mean the end of libel tourism? i don't thinks so.

    No, but there is an ongoing parallel campaign to have the libel laws changed:

    http://www.libelreform.org/

    You can sign a petition there.

    They seem to have had some degree of success of getting the main parties to commit to some sort of reform in their manifestos although whether any of that will translate into reality I don't know.

    Ok, will give them a look and will sign the petition.

    I think there is a standardised letter you can send to your MP too. I think I must have sent one because I occasionally get a letter from my MP updating on progress.

    that would be simon hughes in my case. i can't locate the letter template on the libelreform.org though. the only thing i was able to find on the internet that hughes has signed the Early Day Motion 423: Libel Law Reform which is meant to be in support of the libel reform.

    I was going to add it to the parcel delivery woes thread but I was distracted by a scammy phone call.
