Helen Clark and her leftist friends at TV3 try to brew up a storm but it is oh so contrived.
Good God, do they seriously suggest that millionaire John Key should not talk to millionaire Lord Ashcroft? Do they seriously suggest that John Key is lying? Why, if the Pope claimed to be a Catholic, Helen Clark would say he was lying if she thought she might get some advantage.
John Key should come out with a strong statement today and here is a draft:
"The Prime Minister has accused me of lying when I stated categorically that I had no discussions about party funding during a private - not secret- meeting with Lord Ashcroft of the British Conservative Party. I need to remind Helen Clark that unlike her and the Labour Party, if I need some funds I don't have to send my party secretary on world fund raising begging trips. I am quite capable of writing out the cheque myself."
Adolf well remembers the similar shit being heaped on Liberal Party PM malcolm Fraser during the 1970s, after the cur Whitlam and his corrupt administration had been sacked.
Fraser's attractive wife Tamie (impeccable teeth) was being interviewed and harrassed on ABC TV. She took it all quietly and skilfully for a while until she smiled sweetly and cut the leftie interviewer's knees off with:-
'You don't seem to understand, we don't need to be corrupt. We are wealthy in our our right.'
End of story. End of interview. Stone cold dead.
