I read in the news that one of the suspects in Madeleine's disappearance has been awarded £ 600,000 in libel damages by a string of tabloids that have accused him of crimes he apparently did not commit. Wow people. Just wow. This guy has been awarded over half a million pounds for what is, effectively, nothing, other than perhaps having been in the right place at the right time, but this hardly qualifies as doing in my book. And if he did do something, double-wow, he gets awarded half a million pounds for it which, given the circumstances, is pretty good going! Tell me, what is it about this money-making business? It is obviously a secret I haven't been let in on.
