High Court Rules Sven v Piers Will Go Ahead

Trinity Mirror have had their attempt to stop civil action by Sven Goran Eriksson and three others relating to hacking thrown out. The High Court has ruled that the four civil cases can go ahead. Mirror Group tried to have the evidence dismissed but their application was rejected by the judge. Sven will argue the Mirror broke his affair with Ulrika affair after hacking her voicemail. As Piers once lied:

“I have never hacked a phone, told anyone to hack a phone, or published any stories based on the hacking of a phone.”

Worth remembering…

      If they lose the civil case and criminal charges follow, he might not have muh choice.

        Never believe anything you find on Google (or anywhere else on-line) says:

        Will civil cases against some of the other clients of the phone hackers (i.e. not just those against whom criminal charges have belatedly been brought) follow.

        If so – what fun.

        Given the balance of probability basis for a civil case they will not be protected simply by simply destroying their copies of the in-house e-mail files.

    Surely such a nice honest guy like Piers would never think of doing such a thing.

      “little little”?
      “anti-Scottish” is better with a hyphen.

      And why four question marks after a sentence that is not a question?

      Apart from becoming a professional footballer (which requires skill and fitness), in what other profession can the illiterate earn as much money as an MP?

    Dave is as corrupt as Brown says:

    So the price of the bribe and it is a bribe, to get the Jocks to vote no to independence is to shut down the English dockyards and not those on the Clyde as originally planned.

    If cripples can sue the government for their bennies then what is stopping the English Dockies suing the fuckers for their jobs?

    Piers Morgan is actually on board the UK-sponsored Indian space rocket heading towards Mars as we speak. He’s wearing a burka too.

    I keep asking Ulrika to come on my show – but she will not reply. Not like the old days… would even go to soccer matches. Piers is definitely due for a cum-uppance.

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
