Guido Fawkes vs Tom Watson?

I don't know what's going on here, but it would appear that Guido Fawkes is taking Tom Watson, Labour MP for West Bromwich East, to court for something he said on his blog. All I have to go on is:
Notice : That Story That Was on Tom Watson's Blog

...and now is not. That was a step too far in Blogwars.

Legal notices went out at 12.30.

If the BBC Radio 4 Profile on Guido is correct, his blog is offshore to prevent him being done for libel. If I understand things correctly, this is double standards of the worst kind from Guido; he has attacked Tom Watson for breaking the rules but won't allow the same rules to apply to him.

I may, of course, be barking up the wrong tree. The major observer of Guido is Tim Ireland at Bloggerheads - I shall be interested to hear what he has to say in the morning.


Update: 12 Feb 2007 - the post I link to above has been taken down. How very interesting...
