This looks to be good.  As legal blogger Jack of Kent writes today (Libel Reform: Free Speech is not for Sale), two pressure groups, English Pen and Index on Censorship, have conducted a joint inquiry into English libel law – their report is now available on a new website:

The Libel Reform Campaign

It will take me some time to fully digest the contents of the report, but the executive summary makes clear statements as to direction libel law reform should take.

My interest in these matters has of course been driven by the BCA vs Simon Singh affair concerning Singh’s comments in a comment article in The Guardian, and a number of other high profile cases, including quack attacks on Ben Goldacre and The Guardian, and the more recent Trafigura case (in which libel law was used in an attempt to snuff out Parliamentary business).
