Shearer is gone, but who next?

I said yesterday that I couldn’t believe a caucus stitch up hadn’t already been prepared to avoid letting the muppets of the membership hamstring the party with their choice.

I say a deal hasn’t been done because surely if it had they’d have presented that already to the media instead of putting Hipkins to act all petulant and pathetic.

You can’t call the knifing of David Shearer a coup because all they have really done is feed him to the fishes without having worked who the next fish food was going to be.

The word is that the final straw was his secret meeting with John Key so it wasn’t Labour who finished him off, more so John Key who joins Helen Clark as a Prime Minister who has seen off three opposition leaders.

Enough of that, who is next?  

David Cunliffe has to be the favourite, both logically and politically. He has the support of the members, and the unions, but not caucus. I’m picking him to lead. I’m picking him for selfish reasons though, because I want to see him gut Chris Hipkins like the proverbial snapper for his comments at last years conference. It allows simmering discontent to continue for weeks until he finally knifes him, along with his henchman pal Trevor Mallard.

Andrew Little, might have the support of the EPMU but is widely disliked and is a scum List Mp to start with. He couldn’t even win New Plymouth against Jonathan Young. His anger management problem and short man syndrome will prove his un-doing. If you can’t beat Jonathan Young in an electorate or Crusher in the house then you are going to fail as a Labour leader.

Grant Robertson, a fat, lazy poof…now you might think that is intolerant but I have been listening to talk back yesterday when caller after caller rang in saying they were hard core Labour voters out west, the proverbial Waitakere Man and they weren’t having a bar of a poof to lead Labour. It is one thing to let poof marry but wuite another to let them lead the country. This isn;t my view, as I think Grant Robertson, after a lifetime of political grooming and no real job is perfectly placed the modern Labour party. He has considered himself the heir apparent since the day he was selected as deputy, put his feet up on the desk and declared to his staff that “this is brilliant, I’ll be the next leader, all I have to do now is wait till Shearer fucks up”.

Shane Jones, the man ho door-stepped his mate David Shearer and gave him the bad news…not sure he fir for purpose, but would be hilarious in the role. he has mongrel but forever the porn indiscretion will haunt him.

Jacinda Ardern, same pedigree as Grant Robertson. She is really only a collection of bumper stickers and photo opportunities. She is the hand bag of the has-beens who take her as their partner to all manner of liberal elite events. She has all the political depth of a car park puddle, but would look good as a deputy, like the hood ornament on the bonnet of a Ford Edsel.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
