Could list say 5 media organisations to be consulted instead to clarify what

Should we consider if buying yes coupons could be an actionable libel ?
>we'd still be reliant on them to report the motive for the action in question
I think motive for the resignation is irrelevant: it was worded to be whether
impeachment would have been likely to follow if the resignation did not occur.
There would be such extensive coverage of a resignation, I honestly don't
imagine this would be difficult to judge and certainly not from lack of
In addition to traders potentially feel cheated by a resignation, there is also
the issue of the value of the claim being useful:
If the simple version of the claim trades at 20, is this a 20% chance of an
impeachable scandal or 30% chance with a 1/3 chance of resignation or 60% chance
of impeachable scandal and a 2/3 chance of resignation or .... Claim value =
percentage chance of an impeachable scandal seems more like what we should want
I think this issue is much more important than whether claim tends to create
If this has been considered and rejected as too difficult to judge, then fair
enough, I would still want to see claim approved.
