The reconstruction of NZ Labour begins.






Following the election where many of the faces from last century survive and much of the promise of the future is dead or wounded, the caucus should examine how the rebuild will begin before who will lead it back is decided.

My pick is David Shearer with Curran as deputy and give the old guard a subtle hint as to their next career move.
The NZRU got away with a reappointment strategy four years ago but this is a Little different,pun intended.

Curran? You're joking aren't you.

Labour - too appeal to the wider public - needs to shed it's nastiness image and politics of envy. Curran's behaviour suggests she is not the one to lead that.

Curran ? She's as flaky as freshly fallen snow.

Yes, and the Labour front bench is looking pretty dated as well...

Curran is hardly a viable option as Deputy Leader. Why not Shearer and Robertson who would be better off than being aligned with Parker.

Yes Curran was a little tongue in cheek and justifiable by her Geographical position.
She has some merit if they are to continue with their track of employing social media in a 21st century communications assault but would have to shoot Trev The Muss for it to have any chance of success.
The "Fiscal Creep" has great casting potential when up against "Smile and Wave"

David Shearer has a similar Career path to Key and is in contrast to the traditional seat warmer becoming the eventual successor that worked so well for the presidium, not.

BTW I am in strong support of the theory that the deputy should have no ambitions for the top job. Birch Cullen et al, that is exposed when a sudden vacancy is arrived at and the resulting appointment is not qualified.
