Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : For now please let me know whether you are saying anything that is untrue?
No, nothing is untrue.
I do say that there were allegations that the puppets in Wonga's adverts made the ads appealing to children.
This is true because the allegations really were made, but the allegation themselves are unproven.
Alex Watts : Indeed. I have looked at the article (the one in red)
Alex Watts : If it is true then you can't be sued.
Alex Watts : Even if they did sue you, they would need to show they have suffered serious harm as a result.
Alex Watts : Indeed they would also need to issue proceedings in the High Court
Alex Watts : But having read the article, it seems fine.
Alex Watts : Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
I just a bit concerned by what I've read on defamation.
Alex Watts : They need to show they have suffered serious harm. That is a high threshold
Well I suppose if the number of loans dropped in the area covered by my paper, they would have evidence.
Alex Watts : not necessarily, if that you are saying is true then you can't be sued
