Andrew Little and Trevor Mallard are playing silly buggers; Stuff reports:
Labour MP Andrew Little says ACC Minister Judith Collins will have to hire ''thuggish characters'' to serve defamation proceedings against him and fellow Labour MP Trevor Mallard after the pair refused to cooperate with demands from her lawyer.Little said he and Mallard received letters from Collins' lawyer late yesterday after she filed proceedings in the High Court at Auckland.The minister said in March she would sue the two Labour MPs and Radio New Zealand (RNZ) over comments they made on air linking her to the leaking of a letter from former National Party president Michelle Boag about a privacy breach by ACC revealed by Fairfax Media.However, Collins appears to have backed down from her threat against RNZ.Its head of news, Don Rood, this morning said the state broadcaster hadn't received any paper work ''at this stage''.Little said if Collins wanted to pursue the matter she would have to arrange a ''process server'' to track down the MPs and physically hand them papers.
So we've come up with the perfect "process server" for Crusher Collins; Cameron Slater. The Left is always moaning about him being unemployed (which he actually isn't at the moment), he's done repo, security and debt collection work, and he's like a dog with a bone. We're sure that nothing would give him more pleasure than serving a summons on Andrew Little; except perhaps serving one on Trevor Mallard.
