"Come on guys, it's a tag wrestle, give us a turn." 25 August 2005.
Reference Number: DCDL-0000098
The scene is a wrestling match between two huge wrestlers whose heads cannot be seen. However from the 'L' on the muscly thigh of the wrestler on the left, one deduces that it is Prime Minister, Helen Clark, and from the 'R' on the rather stringy and hairy thigh of the wrestler on the right, it must be Leader of the National Party, Don Brash. Scrambling up from the floor and objecting to the unfairness of the match, are two little figures, Jeanette Fitzsimons, co-leader of the Greens and Winston Peters, Leader of New Zealand First. Refers to the way the smaller parties seem rather periferal in the run up tp the election with some of them struggling to meet the 5% threshhold for seats in parliament.
