Have I got coups for you: Is this Gower’s hour?

by cemeteryjones

Looking over the tweets from last night’s journalistic clusterfuck from the MSM published on an article over at the Standard, it occurs to me that there was an attempted coup after all – we were all just looking for the target and the agitator in the wrong place.

I am going to attempt to ‘genre blog’ this one, in the speculative manner peculiar to Mr. Duncan Garner, and Mr. Patrick Gower …

Set your enemy up to fail? Check:

Duncan Garner 9:05pm: Good source. Coup on in Labour. Letter of no confidence being circulated. It’s over for Shearer. Watch for his resignation.

Reassure the target that they are safe? Check.

Julie Fairey 9:59pm: @chrishipkins @Garner_Live Garner has just said on Radio Live that @patrickgowernz has the letter and will show it on Nightline TV3.

Deny everything? Check.


Just catching up on last night’s tweets. Obviously wasn’t on Nightline & don’t have letter!

Heads up, Garner – there’s a red hot poker up your ass, and it looks like Gower’s name is on the handle.
