THE MYSTERY DEEPENS

Just what's happening on (NZL) planet Labour?    Andrew Little's Chief of Staff resigns/quits/fired (your call); his Chief Press Secretary resigns and now his two remaining press officers have called it quits ... leaving another blogger to quip that Labour Party press officers are a more endangered species than the Panda.

A year out from the election and it isn't a good look.

Clearly something's in the air and the smell ain't all roses.    Is Little's office so dysfunctional that staffers feel they have no choice but to abandon ship or is jump before being pushed in a palace coup that everyone saw coming but the man himself?

Just askin ....

Perhaps they just found out about the Rug Vet.

Or maybe they just got tired of sweeping all the dirt under the Matt.

So what?

Has a replacement been appointed?

You mean you don't know?

Really?

So Gerald, how would you define it ... just another day at the office for planet Labour?

I can say with some certainty that if this happened with National then eyebrows (and a lot more) would have been raised. Perhaps the fact the Labour is broke and this falls to the bottom of the pile as work in progress.

Your blinkers are blinding.

Good Lord. Considering how most journos are left of centre and the amount of jobs being shed in media, you would think Labour would have no trouble filling its vacancies.
It makes the situation even worse for Little.

Anon ... so you are equating the turnover of staff in a first term National MP's office with that of your leader ... methinks you are clutching at straws.

Anon 3.25 ... they were (and, as I said, you're comparing apples with oranges) ... your point?
