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:
