Republication

13 Jun

Isn’t the letter in today’s paper interesting given the comments attributed to Bruce Corkill QC  in a Southland Times article? (underlining my emphasis)

He told the judge he had to consider the fact the Southland Times reporter had rung Mr Edminstin the following day and without thinking  he confirmed he had made the ”lying slut” comment.

”He asked the reporter not to report it because he said he didn’t mean it,” Mr Corkill said.

”The reporter said that would be up to the editor.”

The words were published in the paper the following day.

The Southland Times must take responsibility for its own actions,” Mr Corkill said.
