I was listening briefly to Ian Wishart defend himself on “The Panel” on National Radio this afternoon. He seemed to do very well against Helen’s previous biographer!
It’s been pointed out on his blog that Absolute Power is the headline title in Bennetts, just over the road from the Beehive.
One can’t help feel just a little sorry for Hagar. Wishart’s going to help bring down an entire government without breaking the law. Hagar broke the law, and can at best claim the scalp of the Leader of the Opposition.
I wonder which one will be remembered?
Ian reports that his book, Absolute Power, is the #1 non-fiction book in NZ.
Congratulations Ian, it’s long overdue and clearly desperately needed.
Ian Wishart explains.
I’m constantly amazed by the number of people who aren’t church members who think they have an absolute right to tell the Presbyterian Church what they believe in.
Unfortunately, the church is a club, a private club. Private clubs are, within limits, ruled by their members. They have an absolute right to restrict members to whoever they want and indeed set any rules they want.
In the case of the Church, there’s an unalterable rule book, and that rule book sets it out clearly.
