Gooner at Sir Humphrey’s reminds us that this is not the first time that Travor has done an outraegous attack on National, and Helen some days later then tries to claim she did not approve. You wonder how many times they think they can suck us in.
What is even better about the last time, which related to Mallard’s claim of National being funded and controlled by Washington, is that Clark herself is in Hansard a few weeks earlier as having made much the same claims.
So Clark herself makes the smears in the House. Then a few weeks later Mallard makes similiar claims outside the House, which backfire. Clark then claims to be furious about Mallard’s attack.
