Mocking Colin Craig and his Numpty Lawyer

Ben Uffindel has responded to the legal threats by Colin Craig.

Good to see he has some stones.

Dear Mr. McKay,

Thank you for your email. The Civilian was horrified to learn that it had misquoted Mr. Craig in the article in question, and if you visit our website, you will see that we have taken urgent action to rectify our terrible mistake.

We would never dream of making Mr. Craig look ridiculous. Indeed, we’re quite content to leave that up to him.

I have attached to this email the retraction statement you requested, along with my signature, which we hope you will find satisfactory:


Colin Craig just looks like a tool now. What is he going to do?

Tell you what though, if Colin Craig wants the $500 I will help fundraise that to assist The Civilian.

The mainstream media will be all over this. Suing a blogger for defamation is stupid in the first place, suing a satirical blogger is just plain dumb.

Based on the evidence to date Colin Craig is clearly dumber than a sack of hammers.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
