Defamation: fair comment & public interes
Lord Denning said: 'whenever a matter is such as to affect people at large, so that they might legitimately be interested in, or concerned at, what is going on; or what might happen to them or others; then it is a matter of public interest on which everyone is entitled to make a fair comment.'
This may include, for example:
- - affairs of businesses
- - matters relating to the church
- - conduct of public figures
- - administration of the State
