Helen Clark will be surely kicking herself as her normally astute political vision has seemingly deserted her.
She turned down an invitation from John Key to visit the street he mentioned in his speech, instead trying to deride him. Now it is John Key who appears to be the caring sharing leader whilst she looks petulant and silly sitting on her throne.
You know you are winning when the Herald uses headlines like Key wins Charm Offensive.
The Herald even goes as far as quoting kids on the street "He’s a nice man and he’s cool."
Yep cool as a cucumber whilst the Killer Queen fumes in front of the mirror.
