From 2002, John Campbell rips Helen Clark apart, (paraphrasing)"but John! You musnt speak to a Prime Minister like this!, I'm above such questioning!" :-)

Clark "I'm blaming you for not giving proper advice about the course that you wanted to follow"

Campbell "I was not in cabinet, I was not in any way party to this... its not an if... but feel free to shoot the messenger, I'm afraid I had nothing whatsoever to do with this"

Clark "what I want to say to you if i'm allowed to get a word in, is that it is a setup to invite The Prime Minister in for a general interview about genetic modification, when you give no advice that you want to go into detail about how the government handled a certain issue. I consider that unethical journalism!"

Surely she could be expected to answer such a simple question?
