Tony Collins responds to my complaint about a series of libels about me that appeared on his Capitalist Disunity NarkSquad blog today by simply repeating them, then threatening to ban anyone who refuses to join his chorus of lies. Tony Collins is aware that I have already explained to Andy Newman that I intend to sue him for these examples of libel. Tony Collins response has made matters worse.
While you are waiting for lawyers to get in touch, please do me the courtesy of explaining to whom am I supposed to have threatened violence? Try to pin down some of these allegations. That will give me a chance to expose them as the deluded fantasies they in fact are. And that, in turn, will give you an opportunity to apologize, an opportunity to say you were innocently passing on rumours you simply took to be true, doing so in good faith.
My expectation is that neither Tony Collins nor Andy Newman will explain who I am supposed to have threatened violence against. They will simply hope I will go away and hope that at least some of their mud will stick. That, after all, is their modus operandi. Try that ploy, ‘comrades’, and the courts will see for themselves that you don’t have a leg to stand on.
Tony Collins and Andy Newman have had their chance to climb down from willful and malicious libel, opting instead to indulge in a pathetic and ludicrously transparent smear campaign, all the better to dodge the questions about what you have been doing on the left, inventing one pack of lies after another, denying anyone and everyone the opportunity to defend themselves from these out-of-control witch hunters.
