Madam I have received a question from you to which I have replied. twice.Is that all I get for 47pounds, if so I would like my money back.
I see you have rated poor service, but I have not given you an answer yet, just asked for more information
So there was no serious harm - have I understood that right?
Our reputation has been defamed to the point of interfering with our lives.If that is not serious harm to you it certainly is to us.
All we really want to know is if we have a reasonable case for Libel.
You did under the old law.
But under the new law Defamation Act 2013 Section 1 states you must have suffered serious harm
If you have not and you accept that this is the case then sadly you do not have a case
Even if you did there are a number of defences and indeed you would need to issue proceedings in the High Court
If you did issue proceedings and they were fought you are looking at £15,000 in legal fees and you would not get legal aid
So sadly you do not have a case
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
