How many more times is TV news going to repeat that
clip of an ungainly-looking Don Brash slowly and awkwardly
squeezing into the driver's seat of a midget car at
Auckland's Western Springs speedway in 2005?

Government this week looked a bit ragged around the edges.
Not hugely so, mind you. But wariness seems to have succumbed
to a degree of weariness.
