Helen Clark has called a press conference for 12.30 pm.
The 9th floor won’t say what it is about, but most are picking she will announce the date of the election.
This will be great. It will mean we are in the campaign period with Winston still surgically attached to her.
UPDATE: It is on November 8, as long predicted.
Clark says she will be campaigning on trust. I hope she will campaign with her Foreign Minister. I also hope she campaigns on how she knew the truth about the secret donations from Owen Glenn for six months and said nothing. How a Labour MP almost certainly told her three months ago that there was a witness (the MP’s brother) to Winston thanking Owen Glenn for his secret donation, and she still said nothing. And about how her party president authorised the secret donation back in 2005.
