On the Conditions and Possibilities of Helen Clark Taking Me as Her Young Lover.

Join our overeducated free-market Casanova (Billy T Award Nominee Arthur Meek) as he charges through the pop-cultural slipstream to prove his amorous point : that by taking him as her gentle knight prior to the 2008 general election, Helen Clark - iconic warrior princess - can herald a new golden age for New Zealand culture and society. This anarchic and passionate Powerpoint presentation is a sharp and incisive satire upon politics, power and the hopes and dreams of a confused generation.

First published as a scurrilous booklet by the elusive Balclutha author Richard Meros, On the Conditions… has been on tour around New Zealand. It has been attended and praised by Catherine Tizard (former Governor General), Judith Tizard (Labour Cabinet member), Rodney Hide (ACT Party leader),and Dr. Russel Norman (Green Party Co-Leader) along with may other MPs and members of Helen's press staff. As yet, Miss Clark has not attended. The show's producers have received an early morning 'threat assessment' phone call from the Parliamentary Police, and look forward to touring the show up until the 2008 General Election, at which point it becomes functionally obsolete.
