Whoops! You mean THAT Edward Garnier?

It's not the question you want to hear from your lawyers when you ring them for advice after you've upset Edward Garnier: Is that THE Edward Garnier QC, and pre-eminent libel barrister?

Worse still, the answer was yes!

That's right, Edward Garnier, MP for Harborough is a barrister specialising in libel ... and we made a pretty poor error in our report on his expense and allowance claims. He wasn't happy! Fortunately, we reached agreement quickly and the error was corrected the next day, along with an apology, and that seems to be the end of the matter.
