“Please can you stick to the issues and not hide behind your anonymity to slander employees at the council who are doing their best to communicate information to the public and playing their part in promoting road safety,” whines city council PR boss Simon Caplan in the comments section of this blog.
Ooh, er missus!
I think Carole might be whingeing because the Blogger’s drawn a lot of attention to his management of one of the worst public relations campaigns in the entire history of humanity – the council’s pisspoor effort to spin the closure of Prince Street Bridge as some kind of lifesaving service to cyclists.
But slander eh? That’s quite a serious allegation isn’t it? From a senior officer of the city council and an objective public servant too. It certainly wouldn’t just be a load of hot air, bluster and bullshit from an overpaid and underperforming senior officer at the Council House desperately trying to disguise their manifest incompetence would it?
Now never being one to duck a direct challenge – or pass up the opportunity to turn a local laughing stock in to a national laughing stock in the High Court – the Blogger has responded to the hapless PR boy by inviting his legal team to email me immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll happily supply a name and address where they can serve a writ for defamation if they can just explain what the fuck is actually slanderous about this article in the first place.
As a service to you – the public – the Blogger will be keeping you fully updated on what promises to be the most sensational legal case this city has seen in years. Or not.
