A decade has passed since Nadine Milroy-Sloan was jailed for three years, for having made false accusations of rape against Neil and Christine Hamilton, the famous media couple. Her preposterous story had been disseminated, via an exclusive in the News of the World, by the publicist Max Clifford (shortly to stand trial for alleged sexual assaults) who subsequently paid the Hamiltons undisclosed damages for related disobliging remarks of his own. Having thus been financially as well as legally vindicated, Mr Hamilton told the press, in 2005, that he and his wife just "wish to put this episode behind us".
