    Yes. Always thought ‘together’ was a useful word for the left.

    The problem is that Labour isn't 'together' in itself, let alone able to get alongside of anyone else.

    Finally throttled down my strained outrage-ometer and finished the book. Fuck, what horrible people. And what restrained reportage from Hager - he could have delved into the personal detail he obviously had access to, and a lesser journalist might have, but the picture he painted just by constraining himself to the political is bad enough.

    Something must happen. I now have to think hard about how.

    You could take the idea a step further and have Paul Henry do his bit before anyone arrives.

    In a totally different venue and all.

    The work of GBSA is never complete. It’s a twisted cycle.

    Graham is not a member of Prinz and is not subject to its code of ethics.

    Surprise, surprise.

    I must admit the revelation on nat radio this morning that Slater (spit) et al are in the process of starting their own agency sort of sent a shiver down my spine

    I missed that. Is it online?

    Ah, Freed. Right. I'll make a place for it, right next to the New Zealand Truth archive.

    So you think Hager shouldn’t have published?

    I don't necessarily think you can put that interpretation on what Rob said.

    To me – though I’ve not read the book and do appreciate the quote you have provided – these allegations do seem to be about Slater and Lusk.

    I have read the book and that is the meaning. Hager is careful to never allege that Hide succumbed to blackmail. He reports only that Slater and Lusk (in their own words) planned to force him to resign by revealing texts Hide allegedly sent to a female that was not his wife. He notes also that Hide did resign within a week of the Slater/Lusk conversation.

    Speaking of Wishart, what has he been up to of late?

    Don't say the name too often. It's like the C-ndym-n...

    I've been linking to this as contrast.
