Sorry to tell you, but Auntie Helen is coming home

Helen-Clark-Evil

Ms Clark is one of nine contenders remaining in the complex race for the position of UN secretary-general, but she hasn’t fared well in preliminary polls, coming in seventh.

Added to this, she may possibly face a veto from permanent Security Council member Russia when voting proper begins next month.

But Ms Clark says she has no intention of pulling out of the race and isn’t thinking about an alternative plan if she fails to get the job.

“I only every work on plan A. So plan A is we’re putting a lot of effort into this campaign and it ain’t over yet,” she told TV3’s The Nation.

“But of course, it’s a very windy path with a lot of hidden corners in it. It’s big geopolitics. It’s also about what style of secretary general the member states are looking for.”

Asked whether she would consider an eventual return to New Zealand, Ms Clark said she eventually would come back.

“One day, I will be home. That’s where my home is. That’s where my family is. So, who knows when it will be, but I’ll be back,” she said.

…and where her husband is.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
