You saw it first here at No Minister on April 14th - ten days ago.
Clark's legacy just keeps on keeping on. The destruction of the Labour Party.
The latest blow is the decision by The Greens to field a high profile candidate in the Mt Albert by-election. Adolf wonders if it will be Russel Norman himself. Yep. Sure is!
A win for him in Mt Albert would catapult The Greens into prominence and a substantial increase in support at the next general election - possibly more seats than Labour.
Congratulation are in order for The Greens. At last they have divorced themselves from their erstwhile fickle friends who gave them nothing and took everything for nine long years. They will guarantee themselves success in 2001 if now they can remove their communistic rump and transform themselves into a SANE environmental party.
NZ Labour reminds Adolf of the hapless but once powerful battleship Bismark, sailing in circles with it's rudder jammed by an attack from seemingly ineffective string bag WWI torpedo bombers (The Maori Party) while an overwhelming force descends upon it (NACTionalMPGP) and prepares to deliver the coup de grace.
The only real difference is that in 2009, the rear admiral and the kapitan managed to scuttle away to the safety of foreign shore before their ship sank.
