Yesterday it was Monday and as usual Larry Williams had The Huddle with Jock Anderson and myself.

Our topics were:

  • David Cunliffe withdraws from Labour leadership race, endorses Andrew Little
  • John Key’s anti terror laws. Are they actually needed? Why does everyone seem to be against it?

Dear Danyl…

Before you read on have a look at this tweet and who re-tweeted it.

danyl-retweet

Now, yesterday I received an email from Danyl McLauchlan:

Hi Cameron –

DPF might have mentioned this to you: Victoria University Press has asked me to write a book about Nicky Hager’s Dirty Politics book, and one of the aims of the book is to get comments from the people written about in Hager’s book who didn’t get a right of reply there. And, so, gallingly, I have to interview you, or at least ask you for an interview.

If you consent to this – And you DON”T have to! – I’m trying to arrange a time to come up to Auckland, but if you find yourself in Wellington in the near future and have an hour to chat then that’d be great. Also, if you have any questions you want me to put to Hager, or anyone else, then let me know.

Cheers,

Danyl

It’s Monday and as usual Larry Williams has The Huddle with Jock Anderson and myself.

Our topics will be:

  • National’s cabinet reshuffle.
  • The electricity cuts in Auckland. A two sided affair, businesses take a hit – and these kind of power cuts shouldn’t be happening. BUT also there was a bit of overkill in relation to the media coverage and the term “crisis” being bandied about.
  • Nicky Hager getting raided by the Police.

The Huddle

I was on The Huddle last night.

There was a slight change this week after Josie Pagani showed her right wing credentials they have decided to get a real left winger on the show and so David Farrar made an appearance

Our topics were:

  • Labour – where did it all go so wrong and will their inquiry get to the bottom of the problem. Looking at their terms of reference in relation to this it’s like they are basically looking at EVERYTHING to do with the party in relation to the situation. But I would say that the party’s only as good as the people running it – and they might be in for a  shock when the results of the review come back. They clearly need a good clean out to rejuvenate party in the public’s eye – but they also need behind the scenes people who can come up with effective and strong policy to move them towards the middle ground and become a real opposition party again. They do actually risk becoming irrelevant and leaving the door open for either the Greens or NZ First to be the “opposition”.
  • Then we’ve got the two friends for National in parliament. They feel like faux deals as there doesn’t appear to be much in it for either Peter Dunne or David Seymour – I guess it gives National more of a buffer in the house, but what on earth is an under -secretary? Interesting though that both Dunne and Seymour are happy to roll with their votes going to National for very little relevance in the wider scheme of things.

The left is hurting real bad

The left wing is hurting.

Their messiah actually turned out to be just a very naughty boy.

Scott Yorke isn’t happy:

Now that Labour has lost the election, it’s time for the party’s caucus to focus on the issues that really matter. I’m pleased to say that a number of them have made a flying start.

These are the issues that matter:

  • Anonymously briefing journalists and attacking potential rivals within Labour’s caucus.
  • Forming camps and factions to advance favoured candidates.
  • Spraying opinions all over the media that probably shouldn’t be aired in public.
  • Showing a lack of grace or humility.
  • Encouraging party members to locate and dispatch traitors within the party.
  • Not knowing when to retire from Parliament.
  • Refusing to accept any responsibility for disaster, and giving speeches blaming others for the epic defeat.
  • Making contact with Cameron Slater.
