As expected Brian Nicolle has been cleared of any illegality for distributing a series of newspaper articles about Dick Hubbard last year.
I never ever thought that merely providing a copy of a newspaper article would qualify as campaign expenditure and hence an offence. It was always a hysterical beat-up by the Herald.
This of course is not good enough for Brian Rudman who now wants the law changed so Nicolle would have been found guilty.
So if your political enemies are deemed innocent, you try and change the law so you can get them next time. Very principled.
