Phil Goff, "the Prince Charles of the Labour Party"

from Colin Espiner's Stuff blog column this morning "All change: New Zealand politics on speed"

"Listening to Goff on the radio this afternoon, he sounded like he’d been the leader of Labour for years. Which, in a sense, he has. He’s the Prince Charles of the Labour Party - the heir apparent who’s been made to wait most of his political life for the prize. No wonder, then, that he sounds polished. He’s been practising at home in the mirror since 1993."
