Firstline at 0745 tomorrow

I will be on Firstline tomorrow morning with Mike Williams to talk about the Labour leadership results.

The result to my mind isn’t unexpected but the critical numbers for me are that David Cunliffe still cannot muster any more support than just 11 members of his caucus.

I’ve analysed hours and hours of video in the past three weeks and have come to the conclusion that David Cunliffe is a narcissist and a sociopath. He is willing to lie and lie again to get what he wants.

He has a fake insincerity that he has so far only shown us a glimpse of, like the infamous Avondale market speech. His fake bro accent and working class smack talk is unbecoming.

He did that also in Warkworth during the selection battle and it comes off…well…gay.

Have a look at the full video too at Radio Live…and the condescending way he speaks, especially when he adds in epithets like “brother”…like when he was asked how he was going to make housing more affordable his answer was “Capital gains tax – brother”. Of course he never explained how increasing costs of housing by adding on a tax was going to make housing more affordable but that is but one of the lies he will foist upon the electorate. 

Will he last? I’ll go on record as saying I don’t think so.

He has made too many promises that are from the hard left in order to win over the loons in the membership and lock in the majority of union support. Those promises are going to come up again and again and as he resiles from them he will find his membership becoming increasingly vocal about his flip flops. He needs to justify how he is going to pay for them…so far his answer has been “tax increases…you bet”.

David Cunliffe is a flake and a fake, and he will be exposed now like never before. His double speaking and using different things to say to different audiences will now be highlighted.

The blogosphere pundits from the left, the rabid organisers of left-wing hate speech blogs and other are shortly going to find out that David Cunliffe isn’t the much sought after messiah…he isn’t even a very naughty boy. All I have to do is find all their statements waxing lyrical about how he will save them and throw them back their their faces when he fails. they believe he will slay John Key with his performances in parliament, they are wrong.

The funny thing now will be watching the parade of people who professed undying love for David Shearer and his leadership through to the election now say the exact same things about David Cunliffe.

Politics is a fickle beast and only the consistent and persistent make it.

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.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
