"Credit where credit is due! Never let it be said that Trevor Mallard is their only head-kicker!" 5 August 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000031

Phil Goff, Labour Minister of Foreign Affairs, dressed in workman's overalls and studded boots runs off with a chain hanging from his belt and clutching a large club with a nail in it. On the ground, badly beaten up and surrounded by papers whose headings read 'What I said', 'What Goff said I said', 'Briefing notes on senator's visit', lies Lockwood Smith, National Spokesman for Foreign Affairs. He is saying that it should never be said that Trevor Mallard, Minister of Education, is their (ie. Labour's) only head-kicker. Refers to the battering (metaphorically speaking) Lockwood Smith has received from Labour's Phil Goff, in his attempts to cast discredit on the National Party when he was accused of requesting the United States to support, with the resources of a think tank, a public relations campaign regarding New Zealand's anti-nuclear legislation. The reference to Trevor Mallard is over his assertion that the National Party campaign is getting United States funding which has been hotly denied.
