Inside INCITE (and why you should subscribe)


INCITE: Politics is a brand new publication from the same people who brought you Dirty Politics.  The only difference is that this time we will actually cut out Rawshark and Nicky Hager, and perhaps we can get paid for all the insider information ourselves.

Love them or loath them, the team of Lusk, Slater and Graham are a formidable force in shaping politics in New Zealand.  You can either wait for them to have their emails stolen again, and for Hager to publish them in a book once they are stale, or you can get in on the ground floor and see what they are talking about every month.

The format is an electronic newsletter, and you can only read it by paying for it.  (Unless you manage to get Rawshark to hack you a copy.)  As part of its offerings, INCITE: Politics will commission a monthly poll, where we look at other aspects of our political ecosystem, that provides much more insight than the dumb “who votes for what party” and “Jacinda’s women’s magazine appearances have lifted her name recognition to 5% in preferred PM stakes”.

Instead of reactive polling to see what effect certain events had, we want to push it up to the next level by looking ahead and telling you what is most likely to happen next month.  But, only those who pay get to know.

We will observe and rate the performances of MPs, parties and proposed policies.  And, with the local body elections ahead, INCITE: Politics will tell you if the Mayor is having sex in the Ngati Whatua room before the elections this time.  Promise.  

To ensure we cast a wide net and keep an open mind, we have invited veteran political commentators, MPs and ex-MPs, journos and ex-journos, as well as political Dark Arts practitioners, to join us and add their take on the political landscape as it changes from month to month.

We also briefly look back to see where New Zealand’s most recent political party is trying to take the nation:  the media have become a political player in their own right, and their people, their management and their behaviour also require monitoring and analysis as they force the hands of elected officials.

To round things out, we will read the blogs and social media so you don’t have to.  As a result, you will be kept in the loop on the major trends, the power players and those who make lots of noise but mistake it for progress.  We will tell you who is actually a social media asset, and which of them are wasting your time.

All in all, INCITE: Politics will become essential reading for anyone who wants to keep up to date and ahead of politics in New Zealand.  Please subscribe below.  None of the content of the newsletter will be available on Whaleoil or anywhere else.  This publication is eyes-only, subscription only, and by insiders for insiders.
