Nicky Hager will be speaking at Drinking Liberally – Wellington this coming Thursday.
Hager, author of The Hollow Men – shortly to screen as a movie at the International Film Festival – is back in the spotlight this week following this article in the Sunday Star Times.
In it, Nicky details the National Party’s continuing associations with controversial political pollsters and PR people Crosby Textor. They’re now helping to brand John Key. In the past they’ve been linked to John Howard’s manipulation of the Tampa incident, illegally push polling on abortion, and some of the more negative aspects of Boris Johnson’s London Mayoralty campaign.
Nicky’s going to talk about what it is that puts so many people off politics with specific reference to Crosby Textor.
Should be a great talk – see you there!
