The 1975 Leaders Debate

Television (Full Length) – 1975

On these issues the consensus of the New Zealand public is that they like those issues.
– Muldoon
Clearly I offend people by being a little too blunt and a little too simple in my answers. That’s me and I think people know me well enough now.
– Muldoon
Do you think the public mind might have been shaped by the fact that you appear to be a reluctant Prime Minister. You’re not exactly a dominant leader in government?
– Interview chair David Beatson to Rowling
And I think the people will say: we want New Zealand a bit as it used to be, not the way these people are trying to make it.
– Muldoon's closing remarks in the debate
He made himself sound as though he could solve all the problems without giving a clue what policy would activate them.
– Tom Parkinson on Muldoon's telegenic talents
