Is Helen Planning A Big Announcement In Auckland?

The rumour mill was running hot at Moore Wilson this morning. The word is that Helen is going to announce in front of Comrade Kevin in Auckland this week that she has the numbers to pass her emissions trading bill. We are dubious but we thought we should pass it on - just in case some of our readers were able to confirm or deny.

Getting the numbers will only be possible if the Greens have caved in. Given their poll result this morning this would have been most unwise. The more that the Greens can distance themselves from Labour the better for their prospects.
