Tesco's Guardian assault takes us into new territory

I don’t mean to be partial, but Tesco’s threat to take on The Guardian over its tax avoidance articles does, in the words of the paper, send a ‘chill’ through media debate on tax.

If, like me, you write about corporate tax avoidance day in, day out, it’s a bit of a wake-up call, but not an unexpected one. I have been thinking for the last eighteen months that it was only a matter of time before someone sued for libel over tax avoidance claims.
