I have suffered no actual harm to my reputation or otherwise. In the pubic interest, I merely wish to let others know of the intimidating nature of the councillor concerned without comeback from him.
Yes but one of the tests for slander is you must have suffered serious harm
What is it you want to achieve?
I wish to use the voicemail message to publicise the councillor's intimidating behaviour and demonstrate that he's not the 'good old boy' he presents himself as. If I make his message public, can he then regard it as slanderous (even though he left the message knowing it would be recorded)?
Thanks for this.
I can confirm that the councillor made no statement in his voicemail that his message to me was confidential. So, just to reiterate, do you confirm that I can pass on his message to others in the public domain without threat of legal action? Incidentally, I forgot to mention that I still have actual message on my voicemail machine as evidence if required.
Thank you Alex, that's the confirmation I required
