#LaboursGotTalent – None of the Above winning online poll

“None of the above” continues a brilliant campaign for the Labour leadership, and will undoubtedly benefit from the withdrawal of Jacinda Ardern

One of Labour’s rising stars has ruled out a bid for the party leadership.

Since David Shearer confirmed he was standing down as leader yesterday, Auckland list MP Jacinda Ardern, the party’s social development spokeswoman, had avoided the media, refusing to comment in Parliament.   

She confirmed she would not be standing this afternoon.

“Many have predicted this already but thought I should confirm – I won’t be putting myself forward for Labour leader,” she told her followers on Twitter.

    • Mr Sackunkrak

      Well, it worked in South Auckland, so why not?

  • kevin

    Heh heh… look who’s first, nobody.

  • Josh Metcalfe

    If people are genuinely saying that, they really mustn’t have any idea how awful the labour caucus is

  • blokeintakapuna

    Labour are looking for a well known and popular identity, who appeals to the younger generation and is trusted by the older generations also. Their search so far has found a very successful business owner… Family restaurant owner to be precise who fits the bill, but when asked, Ronald said to them “can’t do it sorry. I’ve got too many restaurants to promote”

    So the search continues… Maybe they could do what business’s and clubs do when they need specialist expertise… They advertise http://www.trademe.co.nz/jobs

    • Whafe

      You didn’t think there would be many brazillians in the Liabour caucus did you… Not even many landing pads I wouldnt think….

      That’s why they are so well hidden

  • RightOfGenghis

    Jacinda Adern as credible PM, really? Proves my point, Democracy is overated

  • BigDes

    They should have included John Campbell

  • Dave

    Pfffttt Had to laugh, the leader is “None of the Above” the people have spoken, and no leader was found in Labour. We all knew that though.

  • Anonymouse Coward

    The reason “None of the above” is the most popular is because this is the only way the silent majority who support Megan Woods can show their preference..

    Those who write off Megan as simply someone who owes her position to being an acolyte of Jim Anderton will reel back in suprise as Megan slices through the middle to gain her anointed destiny as “hammer of the Jonkeys”.

    Jacinda will be deputy from now until such time as Labour are on the up & up. When the appropriate time is identified Helen will engineer the knifing of Cunliffe (or whomever else is warming the seat) & Jacinda will be Leader of the Opposition with the intention of winning the election, possibly not the upcoming one but the one following.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Why is FatCon not on the list? May be he is the option – “None of the above”

  • Rodger T

    I`d like to see silent T lead them to their next election defeat.
