Prime Minister, Helen Clark, is sitting at her desk talking on the phone to MP, Taito Philip Field. She tells him that his reputation has taken a bit of a knock but that she is sure he can find someone to tile over the cracks. The reference is to allegations that Taito Field has hired cheap labour to work on a house in return for helping the person to get entry into New Zealand.
