Labour already planning a new leader?

Labour has had their Summer School this weekend past and what do you know they had a session about improving Leadership selections and how to make them better.

Not only that they invited the not so lame Duck coup plotter and master numbers man, Trevor Mallard, to run the session. Of course they had to fit the timing around his busy schedule as a professional cyclist.

Labour really are in bad shape when they are running session already on eladership challenges, when they have only just got the last guy in place.

Doubly hilarious is that the facilitator of the session was Grant Robertson the guy who who switched sides, was part of the campaign committee along with Mallard that scored the worst result in 1928 and is also touted as a future leader.

You may be sure that Mallard and Robertson will be suing their new found knowledge to roll Shearer unless the polls improve significantly.

    Perhaps Kosh could give them a hand. After all his great intellect and knowledge would be an asset to the Liarboor mob.

    Appointing Robertson as leader would be the first nail in labour’s 2014 coffin. They need to win back a big chunk of provincial NZ, PI NZ, Asia NZ & senior NZ. The prospect of a gay PM will not help the cause. Would Carter & Dazza want to make a comeback?

  • Grandstream

    It would be interesting to know who was in the crowd – Gary Parsip ? Penny Bright ?

    Summer School of Indoctrination. What is on Grant Robertson’s T shirt? Can’t see it clearly.

      Looks like a close-up of his anus after a big night.

  • Kiwidon

    Damien O’Connor was spot on with his “gaggle of gays”………! 

  • Troy

    Well he is very friendly with Helen and her long time lesbo girlfriend Heather Simpson – both being great plotters of the social engineering programme for almost a decade.  I’m hoping labour put him up as leader – will guarantee labour don’t win the next election.  He’s a goat’s cock and most of the labour caucus know it.

  • Anon

    Grant Robertson is advising David Shearer – kiss of death.
    Remember Robertson was Helen’s number three after Simpson for some years – he is the eternal professional public service” plotter.
    He has many of his “friends” of both genres well in tow, expecting their rewards, in due course.

  • Rockyr

    Are they sticking to the A.B.C. strategy………Goody good.

    Sigh, a slow news day I see. Posting non event fluffly bullshit stories again.

    • Super Guest

      Non-event bullshit? Sounds like Labour to me.

      • Kosh103

        Sounds more like another attempt by WO to drum something up where nothing exsists.

    • Peter Wilson

      I agree with Kosh. There’s clearly nothing controversial or contentious enough on the horizon to generate interest.

      It looks like the populace is quite relaxed about their decision to award National such a decisive mandate.

      • Kosh103

        1 or 2 seats margin is hardly decisive.

    • Thorn

      It does not matter which maggot slithers on top of this dung-heap.

  • Peter Wilson

    I don’t see how anyone can take Robertson seriously. Anyone that swaps sides so easily has got to be extremely dodgy.

  • Roger

    Kosh – losing 9 seats and reducing your vote by 20% to a record low of 27.5% is decisive.

    • Kosh103

      And yet National have, what a 1, 2 seat majority Govt.

      You need to remember this is an MMP country, not a FPP.

      • Steve (North Shore)

        Rally up your mates to make the numbers. When will you get it Kosh103?
        The Greens got a lot of votes because they were sick to death of the Labout corruption and bullshit. You can not include the Greens in your “1, 2 seat majority Govt”
        Labour are on the rocks, National isn’t. Wake up FFS

      • Kosh103

        Oh Steve I see you have a VERY limited understanding of NZ politics.
