High drama and surprises in Helen Clark’s longest day – Prime Minister Helen Clark will today have to decide whether to do what others have been pushing her to since February, when the issue of donations to New Zealand First first began to bubble.

I think Helen Clark had no idea that the Serious Fraud Office was going to announce their investigation yesterday but she was very concerned to get in early about revealing that Owen Glenn told her about the donation in February. Ultimately her little strategy backfired when the SFO announced their investigation because it made a bad day worse.
The Herald also outlines Clark’s defence of Winston Raymond Peters, 63, Member of Parliament of no fixed abode and has a lovely little Emmerson cartoon that shows the true damage to Clark. They even have a handy link to Clark’s Rogues Gallery.
The damage is done and Clark’s little charade of coming clean hasn’t helped. The word on the street too is that Owen Glenn isn’t best pleased to have been labelled a liar in the parliament by Michael Cullen. I think I might trot off to Wellington next Thursday and video the Privileges Committee, should be fun to watch as Owen Glenn drops WRP, 63, MOPONFA and Helen Clark right in tha cack.
