Russell Brown has lumped phil u's blog 'Whoar' in with his description of 'sundry right wing bloggers.'Rob O'Neill at NZBC notes sundry right-wing bloggers going off half-cocked on local connections to the oil-for-food scandal. And then apologising.
Now, in any reasonable man's opinion that's defamation and I understand phil's QC has advised him to sue both O'Neill and Russell Brown who are spreading this scurrilous misinformation and thereby perpetuated the slur and inuendo upon phil's good character in Greenie circles. He's been damaged irreparabley. Scarred for life, even.
Phil will expect no less an apology than these fellows piously demand from Sir Humphrey's Adolf who did indeed check his sources before going into print.
