I'm with the dogs on this one.

Helen Clark, the dour Prime Minister (Labour) of New Zealand says that some dogs need to be banned. They give her the “creeps”.

Presumably she would have them put down. Dogs we spoke to said the feeling was mutual and suggested a similar solution. On this question I would have to side with the dogs. Certainly rabid dogs need to be handled speedily but then so do rabid politicians.

If I had to pick between a snarly dog and a snarling Helen. The dog would win hands down.

Photo: That's Helen. The photo in Wikipedia is actually a doctored version the Labour Party distributed which included giving Clark somebody else's teeth and which was generously airbrushed.
