Armstrong On National's Latest Gaffe

John Armstrong analyses the Wilkinson misspeak yesterday and looks also into the vulnerability that National causes itself through having so little policy out in public, a vulnerability that the Government is beginning to exploit.

This was poor politics from National. But this sort of error is inevitable if policy remains so tightly held by so few within the caucus. It does also raise a question or two about the depth of talent within the Parliamentary team. 20 or so of this team might be Ministers in November.
