Sir Peter Vardy v Tribune Update

Right, I've just spoken to my man next to the watercooler in Tribune's office and to the charming media liaison at the Vardy Group (nothing but the best for Dolphinarium readers, eh) and can update you on Sir Peter's contretemps with Tribune.

Sir Peter isn't suing Tribune, matters were settled last week, not quite out of court; as part of the settlement, the magazine agreed to a statement being read out in the High Court repudiating the admittedly pisspoor article by sometime playwrite Ed Waugh which was the subject of Vardy's complaint. It has also undertaken to make a donation to a charity of Sir Peter's choice.

I understand that this isn't the first time Sir Peter has taken action against a publication in respect of the Creationist label which has dogged him for some time. A few years ago he took action against The Guardian which was settled out of court.

What a relief. One can go back to thinking Tribune are a bunch of sell-outs without feeling vaguely guilty about kicking someone when they're down.
