Oh.. my.. ghod

In case you haven't heard - John Major and Edwina Curry had an affair for four years while they were both in Thatcher's government.

Am I the only person to remember that he sued a magazine - Scallywag - out of existence when they printed a story that mentioned rumours that he'd had an affair (with someone else) but said they weren't true? Just mentioning them was enough for him to reach for his lawyers... He also sued their printers and distributors - these paid up and, per their contract, passed the costs onto the magazine. How to win a libel action without (much) risk.
