Cunliffe confirms lurch left

Many in the media are talking about David Cunliffe’s lurch to the left like it’s something new.

It’s not.

In the last #leadersgottalent contest which he lost to David Shearer, David Cunliffe declared war on the Greens and promised to get back some of their support.

    It’ll be all love and kisses if the labgreens can govern!

      until day 2!

    No amount of counselling can make that marriage work. I don’t think they have even slept together.

    Labour had already lurched to the left under Shearer, now they are poised to take a little bit more of a lean. Don’t discourage them – let the band play on!

    Putting the Greens in charge of the countries economy or finances is a bit like putting Bush in as the head of the Taliban – they really wouldn’t want to succeed at their job.

    Wussell’s used to failing at everything so it might be suitable for him

    • Not true. Wussell’s only problem is he keeps turning up to a battle of wits, woefully unarmed.

        No, Hamilton Lad, that’s not quite true, he brings half.

    I do believe Cunliffe can lift Labour’s vote share, but if most of that is at the expense of the Greens, the total left-wing vote lift will be little to nothing.

    Cannabalising your partners doesn’t really help your cause overall.
