Who should be Labour’s deputy?

Will Cunliffe suffer the Moroney Effect?

Both David Cunliffe and Grant Robertson have pledged to support a man ban…essentially forcing 50% of candidates to be women.

It stands to reason that they should, if they are true to their words nominate a deputy…as a kind of package deal so members know what they are getting in advance.

David Cunliffe has explicitly declared he will have a woman for his deputy but who? Word has it that Sue Moroney has got the nod and she was certainly front and centre at Cunliffe’s campaign launch. 

What do readers think? I’ve put together some likely candidates, including those like Clare Curran and Jacinda Ardern who have declared for Grant Robertson…in case Cunliffe decides he wants to try to unify the party.

Who should be Labour's deputy leader?

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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