Clark struggles with facts when under pressure

Published: Tue 2 Nov 1999 04:03 PM
“With Helen Clark’s latest gaffe on how fast student loans grow she looks increasingly accident prone,” said Roger Sowry.
“Before the campaign was even under way she was apologising to a surgeon because she accused him of doing something he hadn’t done.
“Next thing she’s promised 3% unemployment by the end of the term of the next Government, and then had to retract it when Michael Cullen heard about it.
“And let us not forget her flip-flops on Party accommodations. When she thought she didn’t need the Greens she was highly moralistic about the arrangements others had made. When the tide turned she quick as a flash gave her Coromandel candidate the shove.
“It just shows she isn’t very good when under pressure to perform," Mr Sowry said.
