ON LABOUR'S LEADERSHIP (OR LACK OF)

The Veteran had always thought that David Cunliffe was an arrogant tosser. The revelation by Audrey Young in yesterdays Royal New Zealand Herald that he was promoting himself and the Member for Drink Driving, aka Ruth Dyson, as Labour's (wet) 'dream team' has caused me to revise that assessment.

David Cunliffe is a stupid arrogant tosser.

But that along with Shane Jones' put down of his leader over the Maori flag debate having already set him up for his bollocking by the Labour Caucus over his race relations speech suggests that the BBQ season is well and truly underway.

So who will the Labour caucus opt for at their first meeting in the new year when a vote on the leadership will be taken? The contenders ...

Goff and King;
Cunliffe and Dyson;
Jones and Parker, or even
***** and *****

A month ago I would have said Goff was secure. Now I'm not so sure.

Can't see it being Cunliffe. He exudes a degree of patronizing haughtiness that makes Steve Maharey appear quite palatable in comparison.

It will remain goff and king for the foreseeable future. I expect King to go at the next election (probably for Little)
Cunliffe and Jones are both fatally damaged over the cash for citizenship scandal (yet to expode)which leaves Dyson.
The drunk driver should be unelectable as she has a face like a dog licking shit of a nettle. But history has shown we will elect shrieking harpies, so maybe a shot at number 2 in the future.

Yes, there is something very smug about Cunliffe, smug and self-satisfied (just like Key is). How about Phil Twyford and one of the young female rookies, Clare what's her name?
