There is much speculation going on about who Duncan Garner’s source for the coup talk is.

David Farrar blogs about Duncan Garner’s mystery source:
So if it was MP. The question is, which one. We can’t know for sure, but logically one would expect it to be an MP who:
- Was not a supporter of Shearer in the ballot vs Cunliffe
- Has been demoted by Shearer since then
- Was a supporter of the “man ban”
- Has little to lose by leaking as they are likely to retire at the next election, or prior to that
One can’t blame Chris Carter for this one.
I’d add one more criteria…Who has been caught lying to TV3 before?
This is still all about destabilising David Shearer…make no mistake about that. The Spring Offensive has just moved up a notch.
