Howard gone - Clark next

Press Release
For Immediate Release.

Howard gone - Clark next

Howard is gone and Clark is next, predicts Republicans leader Kerry Bevin, and like Howard, Clark will not be the only casualty.

History is repeating itself. We have the Muldoon legacy, now will have Clark’s legacy.

There is something tragic about a PM who has passed their use by date, not knowing when to step aside. Clark has lost touch. Lost touch, with what ordinary decent kiwis think and she will deliver terminal damage to the Labour party in the 2008 election.

Kiwis are seeing the Labour Party for what it has become. A hollow shell closeting a bunch of aberrant and rabid feminists, and it will take more than Social Engineering to stop the imminent collapse of this once proud institution, said Bevin.

Mr Bevin is not impressed with Clark’s NCEA report:

Failed on treaty reconciliation.
Failed as a supporter of family.
Failed with a chaotic health system.
Failed with a repressive tax regime.
Failed for government by judicial activism.
Failed with brides and manipulations of democracy.

The ultimate failure however will be Labours Non Competitive Election Act.

Such a poor showing should get the deserved result in 2008, said Bevin.
Clark will really need a position in the UN after the next Election.

Republicans will be promoting their 5 ways forward in the new start 008 campaign. We are ready for next year’s election, said Bevin.
