But this bit stood out:
Eight months on from Labour's election loss, former prime minister Helen Clark has no regrets and she rejects suggestions that Labour alienated voters by pushing through measures such as the child discipline bill.
Let's get this straight. Eight months on, Helen Clark confirms that she has "no regrets". We can only conclude that to mean that she has "no regrets" about having supported Phillip Field. By extension, it can be argued that Helen Clark had "no regrets" about Phillip Field's conduct whilst he was a Labour MP (with the exception of him threatening to jump ship; a sackable offence), conduct which saw him this week become the first MP in the history of this country to be found guilty of corruption as an MP.
Need we say more?
