Mr Goff said yesterday the party would reflect on the election loss and "how there came to be a disconnect with a significant proportion of the electorate".
"We accept the verdict of the people that after nine years in Government the mood was time for a change.
"Time will tell whether the changes which are proposed will be what the public was led to believe. We will be watchful for secret agendas."
Now pardon my cynicism, but wasn't Phil Goff part of the Lange/Palmer/Moore government between 1984 and 1990? And didn't he sit a whole lot closer to Sir Roger Douglas than Helen Clark did? Hmmmmm, interesting ...
