AUCKLAND: Outspoken Labour MP and former Cabinet Minister John Tamihere is signaling he's prepared to make a challenge for the Labour leadership if the party wins this year's election.

In an exclusive and wide-ranging interview with INVESTIGATE, Tamihere has lashed out at his ministerial colleagues, calling some of them "smarmy" and warning publicly that the country is being governed "by prime ministerial dictate".

Tamihere, who remains outside Labour's inner circle despite being cleared of corruption allegations by a Serious Fraud Office probe, throws down the gauntlet in the INVESTIGATE interview, published in full in the magazine's print edition this weekend.

In it, Tamihere says a leadership challenge is not out of the question:

It’s increasingly clear that a government agency alone cannot combat the biodiversity crisis successfully. These grass-roots initiatives are a growing resource in the conservation toolbox. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On The Saudi Oil Refinery Crisis

So the US and the Saudis claim to have credible evidence that those Weapons of Oil Destruction came from Iran, their current bogey now that Saddam Hussein is no longer available. Evidently, the world has learned nothing from the invasion of Iraq in 2003 when dodgy US intel was wheeled out to justify the invasion of Iraq, thereby giving birth to ISIS and causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.

In the circumstances, yesterday’s move by Lam to scrap – rather than merely suspend – the hated extradition law that first triggered the protests three months ago, seems like the least she can do. It may also be too little, too late. More>>

Dave Hansford on The Dig: Whose Biodiversity Is It Anyway?

The DOC-led draft Biodiversity Strategy seeks a “shared vision.” But there are more values and views around wildlife than there are species. How can we hope to agree on the shape of Aotearoa’s future biota? More>>
