Prime Minister, Helen Clark, walks along a corridor in parliament accompanied by a press officer. He tells her that a meteor has exploded over Canterbury and he wonders if she would like to make a press statement. Helen Clark, who is looking very grim, wonders if it can be blamed on the Exclusive Brethren. Refers to the accusations of illegal election spending during the 2004 elections. The Exclusive Brethren who over the past few weeks have distributed hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of pamphlets attacking the current Labour Government and the Green Party.
