Moore blasts PM's 'politics of personal destruction'- Yawn
Former Labour Party leader Mike Moore has let fire with a searing criticism of Helen Clark, comparing the Prime Minister's "politics of personal destruction" with the highly divisive premiership of Sir Robert Muldoon. Writing in today's Herald in an opinion piece entitled "A Return to Muldoonism?" Mr Moore says he expects to see cartoons of Helen Clark showing her morphing into the former National leader, who was prime minister from 1975 until 1984.
Oh do shut up Mike, are you still bitter after all these years with Helen toppling you as leader? Only a Trade Unionist could hold a grudge that long, except of course for the fact that Mike has gone to the far, far, far right after his WTO metamorphose, but I do miss him, those long winded speeches he would make on the hoof where he would connect surf lifesaving in NZ with rice production in China, breathtaking and terrifying at the same time – in the words of David Lange, “God knows what Mike would have done if he had run the country again”.
