Scott, Thomas, 1947- :"Who's pulling Don Brash's strings? Who's got their arm up his backside? The Yanks, that's who! He's their puppet! Their mouthpiece!" Dominion Post. 23 July 2005.
Reference Number: DX-025-165
A glove puppet in the form of Trevor Mallard, Minister of Education, is shown, spectacles glinting, frothing at the mouth almost, demanding to know 'Who's pulling Don Brash's strings' etc. The arm working the puppet, belongs to an invisible puppeteer, but it is a female arm and doubtless belongs to Prime Minister, Helen Clark. Demonstrates a comic irony and refers to Trevor Mallard accusing National of receiving funding for it election campaign from the United States.
