Charlie Shovel Resigns, sick of being beaten to a pulp by Crusher

Charles Chauvel has resigned making way for The Caropotamus, Carol Beaumont to return to parliament. Clearly Chauvel has had enough of being ignored by Shearer, and the final straw may have been Shearer’s pro-homophobe stance yesterday:

Labour MP Charles Chauvel is resigning from Parliament to take up a job with the United Nations in New York.

Mr Chauvel, a List MP, said he had resigned effective from March 11.

He will work for the UN Development Programme organisation former Prime Minister Helen Clark leads – as an advisor on Parliamentary Development and Democratic Governance. 

Mr Chauvel said Ms Clark was not involved in his selection – “I don’t think she even knows I have the job.”

Mr Chauvel was one of MP David Cunliffe’s supporters in the leadership contest between David Shearer and Mr Cunliffe last year.

Of course Helen had nothing to do with it, yeah we believe you Chuck.

More obvious is that Shearer was obviously going to dump him way down the pecking order for picking the wrong side int he leadership battles.

Meanwhile the perils of Labour’s list have been shown up with the decidedly average and awful Carol Beaumont returning. At least the  Ardern hating Witches of Labour-wick will have a new member of the coven now.

    Oh God. Another one of Helen’s homosexual luvvies off to feed out of the international trough.

  • Mr_Blobby

    It is the UN, so it is possible that nobody knows what is happening.

  • Shoreboy57

    Should Labour be concerned about rate of NZ migration to UN? Growing at faster rate than exports to OZ

    • JeffDaRef

      At least it cant be labelled a “brain drain”…

  • Heather du Plessis-Allan sums it up beautifully…

  • out2lunch

    The UN aka the recycle bin of has been labour rejects.

  • Never been a huge fan of Chauvel, but Christ, wouldn’t anyone rather have him in Parliament than Carol Beaumont?!

  • Teletubby

    Labour ex MPs are always gonna find a trough to feed at, I’m just glad the UN are providing one that is funded by someone other than the NZ taxpayer. I could never see the purpose of the UN until now.

    • Patrick

      I suspect we do fund it somehow

  • Patrick

    Don’t let the door hit you on the way out. Cannot think of a single thing that this trougher contributed to that has made NZ a better place.

    • blokeintakapuna

      His leaving and encouraging others in labour to follow…

  • Greg

    Other Gay, Hero, Pride….. Nah lets get real – POOF is off other seas to be with their leader Helen.

  • Mr Sackunkrak

    Arrrgghhh, Carol Beaumount, she-mountain and weapons-grade trougher twice rejected by the electorate …. why, oh why. Head in hands.

  • grumpy

    These guys don’t seem on to it yet. Strange, they are normally very good.

  • Troy

    Any bets his roomate will be Darren Hughes? Just imagine those two trying to decide who will be on the top (bunk). Then again, don’t imagine that.
