When will Michael Cullen confess the same?

As we all know, the recent economic good fortune of the Helen Clark years was down to the superb economic stewardship of Michael Cullen.
Indeed, the same has been said in Britain about Gordon Brown, the current PM, who was finance minister during the ten years of so Tony Blair lived in Number 10.
But now Tony is on the world stage, the speaker circuit, and he let one embrassing cat out of the bag.
'It is true that we had ten years of record growth when I was prime minister.
'I have, unfortunately, come to the conclusion that it was luck.'
A Blair spokesman says he was joking, a line taken by the Telegraph, but as they say, there was never a truer word spoken in jest!
So how soon before Cullen uses his acclaimed razor sharp wit to say the same.
How might we be able to similarly highlight the benign economic conditions inherited by Liarbour in 1999 and squandered over the years.
Indeed, what a contrast to the bitter economic legacy Liarbour left behind coupled with the global financial turmoil facing National today!
