A few people have asked me what I would do, if I were the prime minister in reacting to the statements made by Roy.
I would give my own statement on the truth of the issue and stopped the matter at that stage. I would not bother to engage in a childish quarrel out of court or in court.
I do not need to sue anybody for making false statements about me. I ignore them. Ordinary thinking people would not believe them anyway.
A reputation is protected by personal character and integrity - not by suing people or bullying people.
