Exploiting Ernie Abbott murder

Within 30 mins of Ernie Abbott's bomb murder, Douglas attended a meeting in a hotel room in Wellington (later CTU headquarters) no bed in room. Meeting didn't discuss who was to blame, only how to take propaganda advantage of the killing. It was decided to blame "right wing" anti-union elements. In order to unify the labour movement & increase Labour's election chances. Present were Rob Campbell, Ken Douglas, Rex Jones, Richie Gillespie, John Van de Ven & possibly Steve O'Reilly.
