Twitter Fight!

Corby MP turned NYC resident and Sun on Sunday columnist Louise Mensch is threatening to sue for libel over a tweet by journalist Peter Jukes, phone hacking trial journalist and author of The Fall of the House of Murdoch.

Jukes’ remark on Twitter — which Scrapbook shall not be repeating — referenced both Mensch’s role as an MP on the Media Select Committee investigating News International and her subsequent appearance on the Murdoch payroll:

Louise Mensch vs Peter Jukes

Bully Mensch has since claimed that she “must add [Zelo Street blog author] Tim Fenton to the suit” after he posted a blog with a screenshot of the tweet.

At least Mensch has been characteristically consistent — here she is back in 2013 claiming that there is “way too much suing”:

Louise Mensch: "Way too much suing"

Not to mention the time she refused to repeat allegations against Piers Morgan without the protection of MPs’ parliamentary privilege — for fear that he might sue her:

What a difference a year or two makes!

  1. Bully Nadine Dorries MP, best friend and fellow author of Louise Mensch, tweeted that I’d libelled her and she was reporting me to the police. That was over two years ago and I’ve yet to hear anything apart from being reported to Twitter.

  2. Wow, Scrapbook! Carrying a Lynton Crosby endorsed ad campaign on behalf of Philip Morris – i couldn’t really concentrate on the story after that.
