I can't wait

Chris Carter is writing a book.

Outspoken MP Chris Carter is writing a “kiss and tell” book about Labour’s nine years in power.

The autobiography is to be in bookshops next year just as the election campaign begins.

It will be the first book written by a former Cabinet minister of the nine years Labour led the country.

Carter’s evolution as a rogue MP follows his public damning of Labour leader Phil Goff’s chances of winning the 2011 election. The attack on Goff began anonymously two months ago but quickly became public.

The party retaliated by sacking Carter from its parliamentary grouping – making the Labour Party stalwart an independent MP. A meeting currently being planned is likely to lead to Carter being suspended or expelled from the party.

Goff said he was aware of the book and was not concerned.

He probably should be, it is due to be released during next years election campaign and will for sure kick Goff and others right in the balls.
