Year 2, week 4: DoubleDare

‘It’s all a bit of a dîner de dog if you ask me’ was ClichéClanger’s first remark after he’d faxed through RedTop’s response.

The letter had basically said, ‘Dear ClichéClanger, Your client is a vain, arrogant and nasty man.  You know that as much as we do.  If you want a fight we look forward to exhibiting him in front of a jury.’

Unfortunately, they are of course right.  Worse is that they have left it ambiguous as to whether the allegations are true or even as to what evidence they may have.  They are clearly calling our bluff.  If BigMouth ever sought pre-action disclosure to assess the strength of his case, they would report it front page along the lines of ‘BigMouth, surely you don’t need us to tell you whether it’s true or not?’  And anyway, even if they fought and lost, their circulation would rise so much during the trial that it’s more than pay for any damages award.

So the question now is whether BigMouth will step up to the mark in this game of dare and double dare.
