Noted: Taking scalps and vicious ‘attack’ politics
Review of Dirty Politics: How attack politics is poisoning New Zealand's political environment, by Nicky Hagar. Nelson: Craig Potton Publishing, 2014, 166pp. ISBN978-1-927213-36-0.
Nicky Hager's revelations of dirty tactics by the National Party will come as no surprise to those numbed by the vicious politics of the US, the UK or Australia, but they have raised hackles in New Zealand and no doubt prompted many people to wipe their hard drives as thoroughly as they can.
