"Perhaps I should say nothing for a while." "What a 'damn good idea'." 22 April, 2008

Reference Number: DCDL-0006256

Shows Prime Minister, Helen Clark, and president of the Labour Party, Mike Williams, sitting together at a table. Mike Williams says to Helen Clark that perhaps he should say nothing for a while and Helen Clark says that is a 'damn good idea'. Refers to the comment 'that's a damn good idea' that Mike Williams made at a Labour Party conference in response to a suggestion by a delegate that the Labour Party should use some of their information pamphlets as election material which would have been in breach of the rules in the Election Finance Act. Seems that it was an unconsidered comment that got Mike Williams into hot water because the opposition leapt on it as a Labour Party attempt to break the rules.
