Christopher Jefferies: 'I have had no letter of apology' | UK news | The Observer

Christopher Jefferies is the sort of man who owns two copies of Tolstoy's War and Peace. They sit together somewhere in the middle of a huge wall of books that takes up one side of his study.

Before the shelves is his antique desk with everything in its place: stamps, a magnifying glass, a printer and an article on French tax. There are signs that Jefferies, 67, who lives in the Bristol suburb of Clifton, was recently delayed by rail company First Great Western. A compensation form awaits completion.

But then Jefferies has been a busy man, not just recently, he says, but ever since his ordered life was violently thrown into disarray two years ago by press reporting that was described as "vilification" by the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge, as a "monstering" by his solicitors and, in his own words at the Leveson inquiry into media practices, as a "mixture of smear, innuendo and complete fiction".

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
