Is Clark Secure For Now?

We say yes, and yesterday's Trans Tasman agrees. But like on The Hive there is reference to Phil Goff's very strong performance and to him sitting pretty for a February challenge. This will keep the PM on edge so she won't mind at all that Goff is off again on another overseas trip. This may also be another good news trip for Goff with progress towards finalisation of the ASEAN/Australia/New Zealand FTA. The only sour note is likely to be services, where both Goff and his Australian counterpart look likely to disappoint the Trans-Tasman services sector. Both sectors have been upping pressure on the two Governments in the past month.
