The Hive carries an interesting story this morning: http://wellingtonhive.blogspot.com/2008/05/this-will-be-interesting.html
Beginning with comment over speculation about a post-budget election announcement, the story closes with a reference to a book by Dr Michael Bassett on the 1984-1990 Lange/Palmer/Clark government. Follow the link, and check out the WRCC Breakfast function on 10 June. Michael Bassett is indeed releasing another book, an insider's view of Cabinet in those years.
Given Bassett's commentary recently, his relationships with the survivors of those years is frosty at best. This could be a most interesting book, and a breakfast worth attending. Both Adam Smith and The Hive attest to the standard of catering at WRCC functions and the view from the 28th floor of the Majestic Centre. Hmmmm - can I find an excuse for a trip to Wellington?
