Why didn't Phil Goff do this?

Ed Miliband apologises for mistakes made in the last Labour government. Goff has never apologised for mistakes made by the failed Clark regime.

Mr Miliband, a former adviser to Gordon Brown and minister under the former Prime Minister, is increasingly being urged to distance himself from the previous administration with a ?mea culpa? strategy this week.

Yesterday, he said: ?I think we got some things wrong. Look, I think one of the things about me and my leadership is I?m the first person to say what we got right and what we got wrong. The biggest thing of all ? and I will be saying this in my speech on Tuesday ? we?ve got to change the way our economy works. We didn?t do enough to change the ethic of our economy. We?ve got a short-term fast buck economy.?
