Hit 'em hard

The Observer also reports that:
A British expatriate who was named as a formal suspect in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann is launching one of the largest libel claims in the history of the British media.
It won't go down well with the papers involved, but I hope Robert Murat cleans them out. When Colin Stagg, once wrongly accused of the murder of Rachel Nickell on Wimbledon Common - had a a fitted-up prosecution thrown out, one of the tabloids had the headline: "Now I'll make a killing". The suggestion was that someone who was guilty would make a lot of money from the failure to prove it. We now know that Stagg was entirely innocent.
