John Key’s offer of a bi-partisan approach in the interests of the economy has been thrown back in his face by Helen Clark.
She was talking economy again today too, but in much less bipartisian tones.
“A change to a leader with the learner wheels on no longer seems as interesting as it might have, even a few weeks ago,” says Clark.
She said she welcomed Key’s offer, but played it right down, saying her team has already got it sorted.
“At the moment it’s something that’s being looked at by senior officials, and Bill English has been kept abreast of that.”
If experience leads to this sort of arrogance and pettiness we’re better off without it.
