The image is of a Labour Party pledge card with Prime Minister, Helen Clark's photo on it. The card pledges that the law will be changed if the funding of the card is found to be unlawful and that ignorance of the law will be acceptable defence for politicians only. A codicil at the bottom says that Helen Clark's signature is forged as proof of identity. Refers to the debate about funding of election spending.
