CLAYTON COSGROVE MP?

A little bird tells me that the nice Mr Cosgrove (the man who makes Mongrel Mob enforcers appear Christlike) has been spectacularly unsuccessful in hawking himself around the boardrooms as his gift to New Zealand business ... so much so that he has reached out to National MPs and movers and shakers for support in helping him to find a new job.

Understand that hasn't happened either and that he is now working on securing a cosy little deal with Phil Goff as his Chief of Staff if/when Goff becomes Mayor of the Super City.   God help Auckland twice.

My mother's maiden name was Cosgrove but he ain't no relly of mine!

Mr Realist Sir ... I suspect yours is more of the General Sir Peter Cosgrove linage (Oz G-G).

When? I thought the elections were in October?

Gerald said...

He was so intent on his muck raking he forgot to use "if".

Hold it. Maybe it's a subconscious admission that his lot doesn't have a candidate that can pull it off?

The Veteran said...

Noel ... they are. Whats your point? Gerald ... 'muckraking' ... explain. And, get your eyes checked ... did use 'if'.

Trolls are blind as well as dim witted, you know.

It was very hard to find mates for The "Claytons" MP last election.
Hell he even spurned the "Labour" template for his signage, such was his wayward self importance.

To have your arse handed to you by Kate Wilkinson and then three years on have newbie candidate Matt Doocey expand that majority from a seat that Mike Moore held sway in, is pretty indicative there is little evidence of any Dale Carnegie in play.

An odious little shin kicker is how some sum up Cletus.

Evidently chickens home to roost seems to be the current game and similar is in store for another bovver boy in Hutt South.

They have such a monopoly on nasty maybe the Commerce Commission should have a wee look, market domination and all.

Question: Can you elaborate a bit more on your little bird?

The Veteran said...

EA ... not without breaking confidences which I'm not going to do. Watch the media for an announcement.

Fair enough, I was hoping to get an indication of the location, not identity, of the source but if its coming in the media I will wait.
