ould-be Labour leader Phil Goff has fuelled unwelcome speculation about his party's leadership and the possibility of losing the election by making untimely public comments during one of the most critical weeks of the Government's term. Mr Goff, with 25 years as an MP, is usually a highly disciplined member of a caucus that is the most disciplined in 15 years. Yet in his Alt TV interview last night, he canvassed the prospect of defeat - "sure, there's a prospect we might lose the election" - and contemplated the possibility of replacing Helen Clark, "if I felt that I was the best person in that position and that Helen had stood aside voluntarily." Asked if he wanted to be Labour leader after Helen Clark he said "it's not an overwhelming ambition". There is no suggestion that Helen Clark's leadership will be under threat before the election and Mr Goff said he was "100 per cent" behind her. But the controversy over his comment, made before tomorrow's tax-cutting Budget, is bad news for Labour, which is accusing the media of "a beat up".
