Former Labour PM Mike Moore had this delicious quote in the Weekend Herald when commenting on Helen Clark's ability to dump 'wounded' ministers, like David Benson-Pope and others on a list too long to mention.
"Helen Clark is brilliant at this. She lets them bleed, they become anaemic and can't fight back and then she puts the pillow over their heads.
"I think Helen has sacked or lost more ministers than any other prime minister in history."
Now, has Dear Leader lost all these ministers because she holds them to higher standards of integrity than anyone else, or is she running one of the most corrupt, incompetent, useless governments in recent history and has surrounded herself with such a dearth of talent?
Still, it helps keep her jobs safe, doesn't it? Despite how many blunders she makes hereself.
I mean, who in Liarbour could realisticly replace her?
