Who Leaked The Tape

Today's Trans Tasman asks an interesting question

And where did the tape come from? Williams was in a closed session of the congress, delegates only attending. Someone has caused a lot of grief. Clark says she has “no idea.”

We can't see much of an angle there for Clark to have leaked the tape unless she wants to get rid of Williams. The price, however, is high. Evidence of real disunity in a Party pretending to portray a unified face to the world.

To add to the complexity of this equation is the fact that the tape seems to have come from the Town Hall sound system. Who was recording things? Who had access to this recording? It has to have been people very high up in the Labour hierarchy. If it wasn't the 9th Floor who was responsible? Who else wants Williams out of things fast?

All very interesting.
