Investigating Labour

An interesting e-mail arrived in the dark of night; a very, VERY interesting e-mail. Attached to it was a copy of an Investigate Magazine article entitled Abuse of Trust. We haven't read it word-for-word yet, but we will be, and will be blogging accordingly. But what we have read so far raises serious questions over the conduct of a number of current and former Labour MP's and ministers.

We're not going to post a link to the attachment. This is Ian Wishart's scoop, and he deserves the revenue from the additional copies of Investigate Magazine which will doubtless be rushing out of shops this week. All power to Wishart for having the courage to tell this story; a story which really needed to be told. It's well worth the $8.30 investment.

You'll hear more from us on this later in the day, be sure of that ...

It's just a pity that Wishart undermines his excellent investigative stuff with all that fruit-loop creationist nonsense.

I'll wait for your further blogging...

I can't be bothered with the log-n stuff at whales.
The only thing that bothers me with the story is Jacinta arderns alleged involvement. She only arrived in 2006 or thereabouts after a (very short) career doing stuff with NGO's overseas so I can't see why or how she would have been at premier house!
maybe some-one will remove the log from my eye in due course.

Alex - the Ardern connection relates to her role in Young Labour, prior to her MP career.

There'll be more sometime after lunch

Aaaah I see.
As the young man is 21 this means all the 'fun' happened in 2003 or thereabouts.
All I remember about that year is team nz lost the AC, a close friend and colleague died and I got married.

The only problem with the story as such is that because it is Ian Wishart people will go so whatm and ignore what ever transitory embarrasment there may be until the story dies a natural death.
