More Helen Clark meddling in sporting fixtures
It was not enough for Helen Clark to cast spells on our top sporting teams by turning up to important fixtures.
She had another strategy with regard to games she couldn’t attend: Get her ministry to hire a Private Investigator to record the games.
Even though we had a Rugby World Cup Minister - and Michael Cullen as an acting minister - it was Clark's Ministry of Culture and Heritage that decided to hire a PI to investigate, watch and record Rugby World Cup games to see if advertising was run during the programmes.
The first game investigated was the NZ France game.
