Groper Trump would be wise to choose his words carefully and take heed of those who have gone before him.
In 1995, Jonathon Aitken, Conservative Chief Secretary to the (British) Treasury, sued the Guardian for saying bad things about him. All untrue, Aitken said and added: “ If it falls to me to start a fight to cut out the cancer of bent and twisted journalism in our country with the simple sword of truth and the trusty shield of British fair play, so be it.”
Stirring words except that his case against the Guardian collapsed and thus, having lied and perjured himself up to the hilt, he was unable to meet the costs of the case and was declared bankrupt.
Convicted of perjury, he was sentenced to 18 months in prison – where he found God.
Message to Groper Trump: a loud voice and a blustering manner may work in the playground but don’t mess with the Guardian and Granada TV whose dedication to journalism and to exposing a corrupt politician carried the day. Bravo!
