Suffering through all of this, and we could have had Prime Minister Bill English instead. I'm a massive fan of what that bloke did as finance minister -- turned the public sector upside down, drove a massive re-think about how to spend money effectively, and managed us through some stormy weather very capably. All that, and got home almost every night to spend time with his family.
Didn't appear inspiring as a leader if you looked superficially, but had real depth and talent as soon as you scratched the surface.
Instead I watch this ongoing incompetence from afar. Helen Clarke would have torn some heads off by now, put the NZ Labour Council in its place, and probably emasculated the offender (who wouldn't have got a job in her office in the first place to be fair).
