Our idiotic and embarassing Libel Law is making us a laughing stock

Norm says it all :

In this land of ancient liberties, the press can be gagged from printing stuff that is freely aired in its country of origin:
Tiger Woods has won an injunction banning the English media from publishing new details about his personal life, after instructing London-based lawyers to take legal action.
The move, described by lawyers as "unbelievable", prevents the media from publishing material that the US media would be able to publish, prompting further anger about the ability of foreign litigants to take advantage of repressive English laws.
 Please consider signing the petition here. (Thanks: MK.)
