Description
Shows the Prime Minister Helen Clark crossing her arms and holding a newspaper in one hand. She makes a comment about power potential. The unidentified man standing behind her in the foreground mistakenly thinks Clark is referring to the failed Project Aqua when she is actually talking about the newspaper headline which reads "Nats surge Labour down" and has a picture of Don Brash, the leader of National Party. Refers to the proposed hydroelectric scheme by Meridian Energy for the lower Waitaki River and the Resource Management Act which made it difficult to gain consent. Also refers to the politicial opinion polls which at the time had National ahead of Labour.
