"There is as much chance of me admitting the motorcade was speeding...as admitting the economy is slowing!" 8 August 2005.
Reference Number: DCDL-0000034
Prime Minister, Helen Clark, stands sternly speaking directly to her audience saying that there is as much chance of her admitting that the motorcade was speeding as the economy slowing. Refers to the present trial in which several members of her motorcade, travelling fast to get to a rugby match, are being charged with speeding; Helen Clark is distancing herself from the situation. In the run up to the election Helen Clark does not wish to admit that the economy is slowing either.
