Simon Singh’s libel case dropped

Yeah, you’d better drop it, British Chiropractic Association.

And they did.

Simon Singh, who I wrote about last week, was being sued by British Chiropractic Association for libel. I’m happy for Singh, but this statement in the Guardian coverage makes me happier:

The sudden end to the case will strengthen the campaign for reform of the libel laws, which Jack Straw, the justice secretary, is considering. It is also a specific pledge in the Liberal Democrat manifesto.
