Ian Wishart is a happy boy today.
It looks as if he has been vindicated over his tales of corruption within the Dunedin police.
Significantly, Police Minister Annette King set to smear former cop Wayne Idour, as well as Investigate.
Now, Wishart claims the report has vindicates him and his magazine.
Naturally, he calls for the heads of King, as well as Police Commissioner Howard Broad, as well as a Royal Commission into the activities of the force.
The Sunday Star Times broke some details today.
The Otago Daily Times covers the story and links to the official report.
The police, blandly, says it is reviewing processes regarding conflicts of interest.
TV3 looks set to lead on the story.
So why has the government/police released the story today?
Is it to draw attention from a TV3 Poll.
Well, if the trailer for 3 News I have just seen is anything to go by, it looks like there is no TNS poll today, even though one seems overdue.
And what can we say about how King has handled the police over the case.
Will there be others joining Wishart in saying to King 'on yer bike'.
Let us hope so.
And how will the government spin their way out of this one?
