Karl and John have outlined the legal position well.

The third party then sues the trustees of the Keratoconus Group ...

Therefore we are liable to be sued for any libelous or defamatory remarks made by those posting. In addition, the trustees are obligated by law to pursue our charitable mission (i.e. support an...

FAO: South Londoners attending Saturday's conference

As you may have seen from John's note, the Victoria line is suspended between Brixton and Highbury & Islington on Saturday 30th June which will increase travel time on the tube to Euston.
