McAlpine Statement: Sights Trained on Sally

Lord McAlpine says he will drop action against any tweeters with less than 500 followers. His lawyers will be focusing on one high-profile social media junkie:

“Whilst I reached a settlement last year with both the BBC and ITV, I would like to now draw this unfortunate episode, forced into my life, to a close. 

I have dropped all claims against those tweeters with less than 500 followers, in return for a very modest donation to BBC Children In Need, which funds 2,600 projects supporting disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

I have requested that my lawyers, RMPI LLP, focus on the action against Sally Bercow and that damages arising from this are donated to a charity of her choice. I am not intending to make any further comment on this matter.”

He’s not backing down…
