Note
  • For 25 years the author has been covering New Zealand politics in one form or another. She has witnessed the scandals, the coups, the relationship breakdowns and the crises from an intimate vantage point; and has come to learn just how power really operates in our democratic system. This is the story of that realisation. Jane began as a teenage cadet reporter covering then finance minister Robert Muldoon's rise to power, and his subsequent fall; the advent of the revolutionary Lange Labour Government, and its demise; the sordid spectacle of the New Right's relentless march through the 1990s until MMP broke the old mould and Helen Clark emerged as our very own Iron Lady. Told as a series of vignettes and themed mini-chapters, this book takes the reader behind the media facade and into the corridors (and tunnels) of power, where ego, vanity and insecurity reign and good intentions struggle to survive. All told with the wit and originality the author has become renowned for as a national columnist
