Clark goes - and we have a world cup
Well, what do you know. The last time our national team won a world cup in any rugby code was just before Helen Clark entered the Labour leadership. We had to wait until she left the leadership until we won our next one - the Rugby League World Cup. Congratulations to our team for winning the World Cup - it's a fine moment. Now, put the game on replay on free to air TV, please.
Just to recap, our national team has never won any World Cup in any rugby code - or come close in any other team sport - while Helen Clark was PM or leader of the Labour Party. We have only won one other - rugby - but Clark was a mere minister. We've played one other Rugby League Cup final - but lost it - Clark was in Labour leadership, then. Since Helen Clark was PM, we lost the netball world cup, suffered our worst performance in the Rugby World Cup, the Black Caps have been a failure at every world cup since Clark was PM, Team New Zealand lost the last race in the last Americas Cup after Helen Clark showed up.
The curse is lifted. Ding, dong, the witch is dead and we are the champions of the world. We have a much better chance of winning the Rugby World Cup in 2011 because now that Clark has gone we have the best rugby team in the world.
