I’m starting to get a bit sick of the grandstanding over the Zimbabwe tour. The ICC has made it very clear that the Government has to pass legislation to stop the tour. The PM’s motion in Parliament will do nothing except get publicity for her.
I also wonder if the Herald is quoting directly from the ninth floor when they assert “Helen Clark’s decision for the motion to be in the Prime Minister’s name lends it strength.” It’s a very subjective statement to make, and one that sounds like it did not come from the reporter. However it is not credited to anyone.
