"...nearly there!" "I love children." 8 February, 2008

Reference Number: DCDL-0004961

Shows a small girl and boy hand in hand walking through the woods rather like Hansel and Gretel. In the background is a gingerbread house with prisoners clutching at the barred windows and black smoke issuing from the chimney. In front of the cottage stands Prime Minister, Helen Clark as the witch who declares with a wicked grin that she loves children. In front of her is Finance Minister, Michael Cullen, as a demented dwarf with huge ears who carries a sack of 'tax cuts' over his shoulder and throws sweets towards the children whom he reassures are 'nearly there'. There is also a cat and a cauldron. Refers to Michael Cullen's promise of tax cuts in the run up to the 2008 election.
