Left Turn the 1999 election a review 14 years later

22 Aug

a book review of a book published 14 years ago but i only just read it , this week…

VUP’s election books have become something of a stable diet for the electoral cycle. If you dont own them then there is forever a gap in your electoral love relationship. If you want to remember a time when Labour had good polls , when whaleoil was a historic by product of whaling , when Peter Dunne campaigned in French ( seriously) , when Helen Clark was the future and a discredited National party were being consigned to the dustbin, when Winston Peters was unpredictable ( mmm) when ACT stood on its own two feet and Laile Harre was a mere wannabe then buy this. Its a great read.
