Helen Clark and Muldoon
Submitted by Callum McPetrie on Wed, 2007-08-29 09:09
I simply can't disagree with Mike Moore- once a Labour PM himself for a short time- in his recent statements about Helen Clark looking more and more like Robert Muldoon, who was essentially her equivalent on the Right (at least, the Social Right anyway).
As I've stated before, Labour is desperate, and in the latest poll was 20% behind National. Labour clearly need to get votes, and fast. Helen Clark is not one to let political "information" about her opponents get past without her exaggerating it, sometimes to the point of an out-and-out lie. That's why she's gathering up all available information about John Key that she can get. Luckily, this strike on John Key (just like the attack on Don Brash during the Exclusive Brethren issue) is very transparent, wreaks of desperation, and not making a positive impact for Labour, at all. Many a time, it should not be an issue at all. One of the most prominent attacks made by Labour was about John Key having a different position on the Iraq War now than at the start, in 2003. Someone needs to tell Labour that it's a rather futile political action to accuse people of changing their minds, over the course of four years.
Isn't it just lovely how Labour is putting the nails in its own coffin?
