From his headline this morning, Matt McCarten seems to be conceding victory to National - what else could you make of "Nats hit a few speed bumps on the long road to victory"? But of course, this is Matt McCarten we're talking about!
He opines that National has had the week from hell, while Labour has had a dream run. If his week lasted from Sunday night to Tuesday night, he'd have a point. But once the second and third "National has a secret agenda" tapes were leaked courtesy of 3News, I reckon that the tide turned. As John Armstrong noted yesterday, National is angry, and that might be the last thing that Helen Clark needs when the House resumes in a fortnight.
Oh, and does anyone know what's happened to Helen Clark's "legacy" ETS legislation?
