#377 Former NZ Prime Minister (and my best good mate) Helen Clark nabs top UN job

According to stuff.co.nz, Helen Clark is on the verge of being named head of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). If she gets it, it’ll be the highest international post held by a New Zealander since Mike Moore was Director-General of the World Trade Organisation. The announcement is said to be “close but will not be made today.” John Key’s National government is said to have supported her nomination too. Isn’t that nice?

Go Helen! But really, I’ll take any excuse to bring that photo out one more time.
