"You get a choice this year, Ms. Clark... You can have one OR the other!" Defending Benson-Pope. Respecting Parliament. 7 December, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000509

Prime Minister, Helen Clark, stands in front of a Christmas tree, looking obstinate and talking with Father Christmas. Beneath the tree are two large parcels labelled 'Defending Benson-Pope' and 'Respecting parliament'. The Benson-Pope parcel is ticking, (there is obviously a bomb inside). Father Christmas tells Helen Clark that she has to choose between the two parcels. The reference is to the continuing embarrassment over David Benson-Pope's alleged abuse of school students when he was a teacher twenty years ago.
