Reference Number: DCDL-0006397
Shows a couple standing in front of the desk of Finance Minister Michael Cullen. They complain to him that they had saved up a big nest egg for their retirement but suddenly it seems to have vanished. Michael Cullen says he knows how they feel as he had done the same thing with a surplus to win the election. Refers to the slowing economy and the slipping away of the surplus.
