Collins is a lawyer with a mind as sharp as a tack. She would not have done this lightly and on a whim. She knows full well that unless her case is rock solid it could backfire big time and no lawyer, let alone a Minister of Justice, would ever issue proceedings unless they had total confidence they would stand the high test necessary to achieve a guilty verdict. It is a big call. Judith Collins has made it and, as I said, Mallard and Little should be very very afraid.
One wonders if they have been bright enough to put their personal fortunes into Trusts?
