Labour are now pinning their election hopes on an illegal recording of a private conversation.
The legal and moral implications of this action far outweigh any speculation of the conversation.
Mind you legal and moral implications have never worried Labour in the past.
It matters not in the long term as Labour are heading for extinction as a political force.
Their much vaunted policies are quickly running out of steam. Attacking National is their only option and I reckon normal people rank the privacy issues above pathetic political games.
I suppose you can't blame the current Labour incumbents as the party really got cleaned out by years of Clark's ego and manipulation.
They haven't figured out politics for this century.
Mind you, you could say that about most of the parties.
Scarily the Greens may have figured it out the best.
Having the "green" vote tied up they have cleverly upped the stakes by stealing the word "poverty". Of course at the end of the day they are still the same fruitloops but just with a shinier wrapping. People will buy into this crap but the Greens are still idiots that think defacing 700 billboards is a great idea and an even better idea to deny all knowledge..
The world needs to change but we really need it to be based on sound policies based on personal responsibility not idiots telling you what you can and can't do.
This is actually the true challenge for the right.
