Phil be quiet

Phil Goff seems to have enrolled at the Helen Clark school of diplomacy, and thinks that it is a good idea as New Zealand Foreign Minister to list the pros and cons of Condoleezza Rice’s appointment as United States Secretary of State.

Goff didn’t say anything offensive (we have Mallard for that), but nevertheless talking about how Rice is someone “less prepared to be accommodating” is not what I want the US Embassy to be reporting to the most powerful woman in the world as the views of the New Zealand Government.

Clark and Goff sometimes forget they are no longer university lecturers.
