High court: Sally Bercow's Lord McAlpine tweet was libel

"The High Court has ruled that a tweet by Sally Bercow about Lord McAlpine was libellous.

A subsequent hearing will determine the damages she now owes him.

Mrs Bercow, the wife of Commons Speaker John Bercow, published a tweet two days after a BBC Newsnight programme had wrongly implicated a "leading Conservative politician" in sex abuse.

Amid widespread speculation about his identity, she wrote: "Why is Lord McAlpine trending. *innocent face*.""

Sally Bercow agrees to pay damages to Lord McAlpine as High Court rules tweet was defamatory 

p.s. when are you going to go after David Icke et al? ... or will that open too many cans of worms?
