"While the New Zealand public is crying out for a fresh vision for the future, the Prime Minister, having no vision to offer, can only attack her opponents.

fear, lies and smears. As the country enters a new
millennium, New Zealanders are looking for positive visions
of the future, not silly attacks on political opponents,"
