"Things are getting hot and heavy with Helen here. I'm thinking we should go with Labour..." 13 October, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000280

We have an intimate view of a large bed in which are four politicians. In the centre are Dr Pita Sharples and Tariana Turia of the Maori Party. Pita Sharples, who reports that things are getting hot and heavy with Helen, has his arm round Prime Minister Helen Clark who is shrinking under the blankets looking petrified. Tariana Turia declares that Don Brash, Leader of the National Party who is sitting bolt upright beside her looking inscrutable has not laid a finger on her and so they should consider going with the National party. Refers to the tricky and long-winded negotiations going on between the two major parties and the minor parties in efforts to get workable government arrangements and numbers.
