Medical history was made today when Helen Clark and Green co-leader, Jeanette Fitzsimons were joined surgically at the hip by a team of doctors. They will campaign this way until polling day, or until the Greens reach five percent - whichever comes sooner

A large comfortable-looking woman sits on her couch with a cup of tea watching the news on television. On the floor a dog lies spread-eagled in front of the little heater fast asleep. When she hears that a team of doctors will perform an operation to join at the hip, Greens co-leader, Jeanette Fitzsimons and Prime minister, Helen Clark, she comments 'That's nice'. Refers to the news that they will be campaigning together because Helen Clark wants to ensure that the Greens reach the 5% threshhold for retaining a seat in parliament.
