What is being billed as the last major libel action of the millennium is scheduled to start today (Monday). Former Tory MP Neil Hamilton is suing Harrods boss, Mohammed Al Fayed over cash-for-questions allegations said to have destroyed Hamilton's political career. The way for the action was paved by the Law Lords when they ruled unanimously that Hamilton could sue despite claims that the privileges of Parliament could be undermined by such a move. Hamilton, the former MP for Tatton, is on record as saying he relishes the prospect of vindicating his reputation in London's High Court. The action is expected to last five weeks.
