Hootons column in the Sunday Star Times is worth of a read this morning but I cant find it on line - So I had to buy one.

Anyway - This is the first couple of paras.

After the defeat in 1990 of the last Labour Government, in which Helen Clark was deputy Prime Minister, the late, great left wing writer Bruce Jesson confessed his difficulty in treating it fairly, because, he wrote, he had come to despise them.
"Everything I wrote about them dripped with contempt. They were a government entirely without principle, cynical and untrustworthy,who clung to power for the sake of it," he said

Hooton notes he knows how Jesson felt. We couldn't agree more.
