Here's a good primer on libel law from Jack of Kent who I met in the pub a while back. 

Well worth a look.

You may find this interesting: A very, very long - and very, very carefully written - article by Alan Rusbridger on why the British libel laws are so discouraging to effective investigative financial journalism. It's in the current edition of the NYRB, a paid for service, so this link may or may not work.
