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.
