PM's Presser - Late October 2008

PM's Presser Late October 2008


In possibly the penultimate post-cabinet press conference before the election the Prime Minister canvassed the international financial crisis. The assembled media learned while National's John Key may be happy to get on the blower and chat to banker's this was not the Prime Ministerial way.

The PM also informed the Herald's representative that her workload was staying a bit busier than normal till the election - namely the PM was shouldering the responsibilities of Winston Peter's portfolios for the foreseeable future.
