A leaked, confidential dossier of Heather Roy's notes for the Act MPs' meeting that dumped her as deputy leader reveals the extent of the rift between her and party leader Rodney Hide and her deep mistrust of him.

The notes say she believed Mr Hide's mission was to discredit and humiliate her. He is described as bullying and menacing.

She insisted on taking a second person to meetings with him, prompting him to refuse to meet her except at caucus and Act board meetings.
