Colin Craig

Today's events have led to an outpouring of comments all over the blogs and there's not much I have to add except to observe that my understanding of defamation is that for action to succeed, statements by the accused have to be shown to be not only untrue but to have been made with malicious intent while known to be untrue.

I think Mr Craig will struggle.
