Hell no! Imagine being questioned by our Leader who couldn`t even summon up a bit of emotion at the movies lately.

Aside from being related to government, what relation does Helen Clark have to the SIS? It's not as if she did the questioning of Ahmed Zaoui herself, unless I missed something.

But all the same, why do you want to know what media player they use?

after the SIS "lost" an hour of the interview with him,
Helen Clark said on the news tonight that "I will want answers from the SIS when I return to NZ, this shoul never happen....."

it was the I am hot happy and heads will roll type speech..........

Ah, well. I'm sure they'll be able to get away with blaming it on Microsoft Sound Recorder :p

Helen Clark is the Minister in Charge of the SIS. Correspondingly, under the conventions of Ministerial Responsibility, she is responsible for their actions. However the notion of MR is, in reality, little more than a fairy story...

"Ministerial Responsibility" - that has never been the case in the NZ parliament - in fact it died out with Samuel Pepys

Yes, responsibility is too little respected, that could mean we get irresponsible fools elected to tell us what to do. Remember the Fuhrer!

Tonight's news says they found the missing hour of tape.
(Sorry if this interrupts the idealogical discussion)

Ministerial Responsibility came in with Responsible Government in NZ in 1856, but as a practice, can anyone imagine a politician willingly resigning for something that one of his or her underlings did?

Well now they say that there was a second 7 hour tape which was kept secret.
