"I can always place a trunk call to my solicitor" Alert:
BrAngelina sues The News of the Screws

Publication: Guardian UK (online)
Date: 8 Feb 2010

BrAngelina never respond to the tabloids in the U.S., but someone has given them the advice to go after a British tabloid, The News of the World, known colloquially as The News of the Screws, owned by that worldwide cancer Rupert Murdoch. The libel laws in the U.K. do not defend freedom of the press as rigorously as the American laws do, making conviction much easier.

Here's wishing the happy couple all the best.

(Note: Some trivia fan who loves the same movies I do might recognize the name of the new alert as a line from Murder On The Orient Express, still one of my favorite Agatha Christie movies as well as one of the top "all star cast" movies from the 1970s.)
