Conservative Shock Value: Craig’s “Dirty Politics”
By Francis Cook
Former Conservative Party leader Colin Craig held a press conference at 2pm on Thursday in which he detailed his plans for legal action against Cameron Slater, Jordan Williams, and John Stringer.
Craig claims he is a victim of an orchestrated attack campaign by the three. The alleged sexual assault of former colleague Rachel MacGregor, he says, was invented with the intention of removing him from power. MacGregor has not yet spoken on the issue citing a confidentiality agreement in place with Craig.
During the conference he released a pamphlet titled “Dirty Politics and Hidden Agendas,” which examines the claims made against him. The pamphlet itself is shrouded in mystery and smoke screens. Inside we learn that there were many authors, all anonymous. An interview with so-called Mr. X details how Slater’s attack politics function and debates whether Craig can make a come-back as leader.
