Comedian Frankie Boyle is suing the Mirror newspaper for libel, over an article which labelled him racist. He is complaining about a story published on 19 July, which said he was in talks for a new series on Channel 4. The first sentence read: "RACIST comedian Frankie Boyle could soon be returning to TV despite upsetting thousands of viewers". The Mirror says it will defend itself "on the basis of truth and fair comment". The trial, at the High Court in London, is expected to last a week. Would not call Frankie a racist, a bigot, homophobic and twat yes! All of this is allegedly in case Frankie's reading arrse!
