I will have a response to [name removed by request] allegations by mid-afternoon Thursday, Feb. 9, 2012. I’m balancing responding to this against family obligations. I’m visiting family in Victoria at the moment.
[Name removed by request] will be publishing a number of stories that make allegations against Linda Dillon and Dave Schmidt.
I’m away from home at the moment and may find it somewhat difficult to address the two matters in a necessarily timely manner. But what I’d like to say before the fact is that, according to Dave and Linda, both stories misrepresent the situation of both people. Linda and Dave will be supplying us with the facts as they see them in both cases.
You may wish to read their accounts before you reach a conclusion.
Also John Lear has allegedly responded to the post purported to have come from him on board the Neptune and said that it did not come from him. If the denial has really come from John, I’m aware of the contradiction that this would represent and will deal with the matter when I return.
