How did Robbie Williams successfully sue the People newspaper for saying he's gay?
Now he might or might not like pushing the sausage up the chocolate hill, but how has he been libelled?
This is the age of equality. If the NoW next weekend reveals wrongly that George Michael has a secret girlfriend could he sue for 'substantial damages' because it is alleged he is heterosexual.
Since when did 'gay' become a defamatory term? Do we hold a straight Robbie Williams in higher regard than a gay Robbie Williams?
Would Williams have sued if he'd been called 'black'?
