"All I said was the Nats had a more generous tax package, sharper television ads, better billboards, but she was winning the airbrushing hands down..." 7 September, 2005.
Reference Number: DCDL-0000162
Prime Minister, Helen Clark, is in the foreground; she has an agonised expression and is clutching her left arm with her right hand. Lying flat on his back is a man who has told her that in his opinion the Nats are doing better in some respects in the campaign leading up to the election but that she wins the air-brushing hands down; all around him are the papers he was carrying and an anxious little man is showing concern. Helen Clark has obviously biffed him so hard that her arm hurts. The reference is to attempts to make Helen Clark appear glamorous on television - hence the comment about airbrushing.
