Clark And Goff To Go To Tokyo

Regular readers might recall our blogging on Phil Goff's attempts to get out of the trip to Tokyo organised by the New Zealand International Business Forum for 14 and 15 May. The reason being that the Prime Minister is going so Goff did not want to be a wall flower. While Phil is not plotting a coup, he might also have looked forward to a couple of days with the PM out of the country to prepare for next February (the logical time for him to move against Clark should Labour be defeated in this year's general election). Well Phil Goff failed in his attempts to get a pass for the Tokyo event. Both he and Clark are confirmed as going. Clark is not going to be letting Goff out of her sight until the election.
