"These 'good' ideas are piling up." 15 April, 2008

Reference Number: DCDL-0006222

Shows Prime Minister, Helen Clark, dropping a crumpled note about a 'good' idea out of the Beehive. She says that 'good' ideas are piling up. Refers to the comment by Labour Party president, Mike Williams, when he described as a 'good idea' the suggestion that Labour supporters could use government department handouts as a way of saving money during the election campaign. This was very embarrassing for the Labour Party as National was able to accuse Labour of breaking its own Electoral Finance Act. Although it is likely that the comment was a thoughtless blunder Mike Williams may be obliged to resign from his post because of the fallout during the 2008 election campaign.
