The cartoon shows a staunch-looking Prime Minister, Helen Clark, wearing a military uniform and standing in front of a table covered with bottles of capsules. Beside her are two Labour supporters, one of whom, asks the other, 'What's in the capsules?' The second man says,'Let's just say, don't bite down hard until a Winston Peters / Don Brash Govt looks inevitable...' Refers to a recent poll in which National has taken the lead over Labour by one point.
