Chauvel quits making way for Carol Beaumont’s return

Cameron Slater at the Truth reports

Charles Chauvel has quit parliament in a fit of pique, taking a lifeline no doubt supplied by Helen Clark, though he denies this publicly.

It is no secret that Charles Chauvel was a fan of David Cunliffe and this will be a large factor in his bolting from Labour.

What is of more interest however is that Chauvel sees an exit to the UN as more preferable than sticking around and hoping that a David Shearer led Labour party may perform an electoral miracle and manage to govern after next year’s election.

Chauvel has clearly weighed up Labour’s chance and also his own and realised both are slim at best.

Just as Labour is starting to build a little bit of momentum against the Government, they end up shooting themselves in the foot with this side show.

    So Champagne Charles is off to a comfy UN supplied bolt hole courtesy of Uncle Helen.

    I’m sure Chris Carter will be giving Charles a full briefing on how to extract the maximum amount of extravagance from the UN teat.

    I hope the fois gras gives them the shits.

    So another union hack back in Parliament. Shearer about to get the order of the boot. He will return to the UN and some labour hack will get Mt Albert. If Jacinda got that then her place would be another hack coming in.
    So will Champagne Charles be off to Afghanistan to be with his old mate Chris Carter??

    Good. Another time waster gone. What pisses me off the most is the fact that the electorate, and all round good bastard Sam Lotu iiga, kicked Beaumonts sorry arse into touch TWICE, but thanks to MMP and the list system, we get her back.

      She is a frickin beast.. I lost so much weight looking at those election billboards due the hunger supression it caused.
