With more than 100 comments posted , I am putting a full stop to this debate. I will not publish any more comments. Too many contain little more than abuse of one party or the other.
The incontrovertible facts are as follows:
*Garner and Carter had a confrontation in the Auckland Koru Club roughly 11 months ago.
*Carter claims that later, on the plane, Garner said to him: I am going to fucking get you, Carter. If it takes me to Christmas I am going to fucking destroy you.
*Garner responds: I ’swear’ I did not say to Chris, “I am going to fucking get you, if it takes me to Christmas I am going to destroy you.”
*Whatever the actual words used by Garner, they were overheard by Dame Margaret Bazley who was seated directly behind Carter. Dame Margaret was appalled by whatever it was she heard and said to Carter: What a disgraceful man. You don’t have to put up with rubbish like that on a plane, Mr Carter.
We will leave it there.
