Labour leader Phil Goff says Prime Minister John Key is a good politician, but he believes the public will tire of him.If you wait long enough, yes the public will tire of him. Eventually. That's human nature. It's also called hope. It seems hope is all Labour has right now.
I was talking to a parliamentary insider about 9 months prior to the last election. This person was imbedded in the walls of the Beehive. At this time, Key and National were plenty ahead of Labour. Clark seemed nonchalant. Not fussed.
Her strategy, as Labour's chief political strategist, was to give Key the longest honeymoon he had ever seen and then bring him back to life, with a thud.
Then H Fee flopped.
Then Labour hoped.
And still Labour hopes.
