SCOOP LEAD STORY
Politics: Conference Remembered For Debt And A Symbolic Whip Around

Labour leader
Helen ClarkThe Labour Party has concluded its annual party conference tabling on the last day details of massive debt and the need for the party-loyal to dig deep into their pockets. Labour needs $600,000 to balance its books. Add to this the $800,000. campaign spending bill, courtesy of the AG, and Labour needs to overcome a massive $1.4 million hurdle. It would be fare to say, a snap election is not on the horizon! See... PM's Address to NZ Labour Party Annual Conference [1] ALSO:

    McCully: Well Known NZ Thespian Gets A Rucking From Nat Hard Man
