Nicky Hager’s new book release is imminent. The book is said to not be a sequel to Dirty Politics nor related to the election.
The Government will be pleased if this is the case. The sight of the former Prime Minister standing up during the last election campaign and continuously denying the allegations contained in Dirty Politics which have been verified on every occasion there has been a formal investigation will not be repeated. It has been said to me that the reporters at the time knew that Key was fibbing and he knew that they knew that he was fibbing.
Hager’s previous books include analysis of the GCSB, the anatomy of an anti environmental PR campaign, genetic modification and the Government cover up of an accidental release, Exclusive Brethren secret funding of National Party election advertising during the 2005 general election, New Zealand’s actual role in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq compared to what we were told, and Dirty Politics.
What will this book cover? I have no idea although I wonder if a review of the GCSB is the subject.
The launch is at 5:00 pm at Unity Books in Wellington. Hopefully there will be a video link.
