As rumours gain momentum about a possible leadership challenge to New Zealand's "Popular and Competent Prime Minister", investigative journalist Ian Wishart is preparing to release an "explosive new book" which will go behind the life of Hillin Cluck.
Hopefully that means more revelations than the "scandals" uncovered in Nicky Hager's over-hyped book "The Hollow Men" (Business leaders support and help fund the National Party?! Quelle Surprise)
Publishers claim Labour's Electoral Finance Act passed last Christmas has a clause that could let the Government ban the book, to shut down political criticism in election year.
Investigate says Ian Wishart "could face possible arrest and prosecution under the anti-free speech portions of the controversial new law - specifically a clause that covers political books". A firm publication date hasn't been announced, but pre-orders are now being taken online.
Wishart also examines the likely outcome of Labour's looming leadership crises in the latest issue of Investigate Magazine...
"Prime Minister Helen Clark is facing the fight of her political life as a string of bad poll results and bad press put her leadership within Labour on the line."
