Man Ban downgraded to a Cock Block

So yesterday, in perhaps one of the final moments in what is left of his leadership David Shearer stamped his foot and declared an end to the Man Ban.

He has left the quota in place so the Man Ban has really been downgraded to a “Cock Block”.

The writing was on his face last night on the news when Jess Mutch asked him if it had damaged his leadership, he said no with a “I’m fucked” written all over his face.

So, they still have a quota to fill and any man currently on the list can pretty much kiss their position good bye.

The only way that John Tamihere, Stuart Nash or Kelvin Davis will ever be MPs is for them to take a provincial seat of National…and after the Man Ban debacle that is exceedingly unlikely.  

Unfortunately my little leak of the Man Ban document and the cute coining of the term may have brought down their leader, and possibly damaged Labour permanently.

It remains to be seen who will emerge as the challenger.

Parliamentary gossip that is reaching the tipline suggests a Grant Robertson/Jacinda Ardern challenge, but better sources are indicating that the serious challenge will be from Andrew Little.

In any case there is going to be blood in the water tomorrow and David Shearer is a mortally wounded leader just waiting for someone to cut his head off.

    Maybe Jacinda can wear her ‘onesie’ for the coup – you know, the one she wore for the photo-op when she was sleeping with the poor, homeless people.

    National won’t want Shearer to go – but if they attempt to criticize him, that will only add fuel to the fire and encourage those in Labour behind the scenes plotting. If National heap praise upon Shearer, that will be even more flammable – so perhaps they need to help the Labia Party somewhat, by focusing a good ole’ fashioned political attack on that dickhead in the Green Party?

      It doesn’t really matter who they choose as they are all loses.
      It highly likely a female will be selected. Simply because sisterhood
      will be fuming after they were told to go back to the kitchen yesterday.
      The odds are on the new leader will be King or Street. Both totally inept.
      And will go down like bowl of cold soap with the electorate.
      The future of the labour party is not very rosy. How sad is that?

      In my view, the Greens are the ones who are going to get the most benefit out of Labour’s demise – so who in the Greens are doing the back-stage manipulation?

      • IWantToBeLikeMallardOneDay

        So people are leaving Labour due to the man ban and are going to the Greens who already have a man ban implemented? Shows how smart Labour voters are! No wonder they’re at the bottom of the barrel.

    Will Damien O’connor be allowed to stand again.
    After all he is white,male,straight and has pissed of the sisterhood
    a couple of times.

      I saw him and Shane Jones heading to the local vet clinic with downtrodden looks upon their faces. Me thinks, scalpels at dusk is on the cards.

    I am surprised,Jacinda hasn’t thought of having LABOUR signwritten on her teeth.

  • SteveWrathall

    Man ban, cock block. Either way it would lead to a no-scrote vote

    • OT Richter

      Which reduces the chances of a Labia-led govt.

    How about this from Rudman in the Herald this morning:

    “Instead of a women’s-only candidate list, what might be of more use to the poor old Labour Party right now is a nice comforting mummy it can hide behind when that scary National Party poodle Cameron Slater yaps.”

    Some may suggest Cam that your teeth are somewhat sharper than a poodle, but what a laugh!

      Poodles were actually bred as hunting dogs I beleive LOL

      • Alloytoo

        Never trust a poodle, viscious blighters.

    Oh come now! We all know the man-ban, cock-block or what ever, is just a means to get Labour’s more useless specimens to the trough. They would orherwise never make it.
