The Craig dossier is on Scribd, put there by Ben Ross. [link removed as dossier is allegedly defamatory]
The Herald reports on some responses:
Mr Slater said he first heard about the defamation claim this afternoon, adding he had not been served court papers.
He said he had two words for Mr Craig: “Bring it.”
Mr Slater said he had “not one single concern” about Mr Craig’s legal action because he was capable of funding his defence and he had evidence for everything he published about Mr Craig on his website.
“New Zealand can find out once and for all what a ratbag Colin Craig is,” he said.
Mr Slater said if someone was going to stand for Parliament, it was important that the public knew about their background, especially if it contrasted with their Christian values.
Asked about Mr Craig’s allegations of “dirty politics”, Mr Slater said: “A: So what? B: Politics is dirty full-stop and if he doesn’t like it then perhaps he shouldn’t play away.”
Mr Stringer, a former Conservative Party board member and candidate who is based in Christchurch, said this afternoon that he stood by everything he had said about Mr Craig.
He said he had never met Slater or Williams, though he had corresponded with Slater since Mr Craig resigned.
“There is no dirty politics campaign against Colin Craig,” he said. “I’ve certainly not been part of one.”
