Look at the facts - McDonald's have a long history of abusing the legal system to bully critics and other companies.

The McLibel 2 haven't gained credence for lossing - get real!
The verdict demonstrates what we already knew - that the legal system

The evidence in the trial vindicated the critisisms and if you think that Bell's judgement means that McDonald's is innocent of the accusations then you really need to open you eyes and read a little about the UK libel laws.
