Nicky Hager’s book launches draw large crowds and this one was the biggest in Unity history. Nobody but Nicky Hager, his daughter Julia Wells and his publisher Robbie Burton even knew what the book was called, let alone what it was about, until it was announced at the launch as the boxes of books were delivered. All the copies of Dirty Politics sold out in minutes and an emergency call went out to the printers to supply more books urgently. The launch proper was followed by a media briefing in the lobby and as the shop cleared TV reporters scrambled to film their pieces in the quietest patches of the store they could find.
