Reference Number: DCDL-0000440
The scene is the cockpit of an aeroplane. The hostess chats brightly to the pilot. Through the open door can be seen Prime Minister, Helen Clark. She is on her way to help with the bid for the Rugby World Cup. The pilot is nervous because of the incident when officials in a motorcade that was speeding in an effort to get the PM to a rugby match on time ended up being charged with dangerous driving and being used to score political points by the Opposition.
