The latest gaffe by Chris Carter comparing John Key to Benito Mussolini is a graphic illustration why Labour is trending south in the polls at a rate of knots.
This man is 'their' foreign affairs spokesman. Do they really expect foreign governments to take him (or Labour) seriously?
Ok, Labour smartly removed his post from their website and hauled him in for a slap on the hand with a wet bus ticket but the damage is done. He is seen as a motormouth and not a very intelligent motormouth at that.
Guess the problem for Goff is that Carter is the darling of the Left and Rainbow Wings of the Labour Party and that he (Goff) can't afford a bust up with them as the summer BBQ season beckons.
