"There is no mistake, Mr Hyde. The polls don't lie. ACT is in a persistent vegetative state. We're going to switch you off at the wall...". 30 July 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000010

Rodney Hide, Leader of the ACT party, sits grotesquely in a hospital bed wired up to a trolley full of screens, dials and knobs. The doctor at his bedside is holding a report and telling Mr Hide that the polls don't lie, that ACT is in a persistent vegetative state and is going to be switched off. Refers to ACT's difficulties and poor polls which have caused predictions that it will not survive the next election.
