OPINION: You are the judge on "she said, he said"

WE HAVE all had times when people claimed that you said something that you had no recollection of, or indeed, never even said.

Sometimes it is of little consequence and sometimes it is of vital importance.

It is the scenario we all refer to as "she said, he said."

Magistrates in court are often called on to adjudicate on these matters and I feel for them in trying to determine who is indeed getting it right.

Our lead story today reflects on one of these scenarios and I must say we have spent days gathering as many facts as we possibly could on the matter.

The alleged conversation between Miller and Attwood has been whispered about in political circles in Ipswich for months.

The claims are now out in the open.

Politics is a tough game and has claimed many victims.

Strong, respected reputations have been destroyed overnight in the push for power and votes.

Jo-Ann Miller is a passionate MP who has built a wonderful reputation for compassion and care for her electors.

Victor Attwood also has a great reputation as a councillor who places the community first.

The "she said, he said" will be viewed by many as just another political stoush or maybe as something more sinister.

For once, I won't be sharing my opinion.

In this matter I have to sit on the fence.

I will let you be the judge.
