Colin Craig denies “untoward” and “unchristian” behavour


We discovered some hours ago that Colin Craig’s press secretary, Rachel McGregor had quit the Conservative Party campaign team having worked with them for three years quoting “unchristian” and “manipulative” behaviour on behalf of Craig.

Craig didn’t know she had resigned and was flummoxed by media asking him to explain what happened.

In a radio interview with Sean Plunket, Colin Craig was asked if he had done anything “untoward” or “unchristian” towards Rachel McGregor.

Colin Craig said he was happily married.

We also learned Rachel McGregor has engaged a PR firm to manage the media on her behalf.

It’s all a little hard to understand why Colin has no idea whatsoever what might have triggered the sudden resignation.

At this stage, it looks like Colin knows exactly what’s going on, but is trying to keep a lid on it until Saturday night when the eventual fallout won’t affect the Conservative Party vote.

One way or another, we all want to know what sort of “unchristian” behaviour caused Rachel to quit.

It looks like a huge mess already, especially since Rachel herself has started a “PR” company in March this year:


Is this some sort of “unchristian” way for Rachel to launch her PR company?  Is the company she engaged actually her own?

One thing is for sure:  either Colin Craig has something dirty to hide, or Rachel McGregor is a prize manipulator.

From her Enkindle Facebook page:


Well.  Either she didn’t go the extra mile for Colin and the Conservative Party, or she’s going the extra mile for herself?

Let’s see how it unfolds.
