Not for Cunners dining with the plebs

David Cunliffe likes to chastise John Key for his richness and lavish lifestyle versus Cunliffe’s man of the people styles.

Why then does he and his 20 odd sycophants think dining on Saturday night , at one of Christchurch’s more extravagant and expensive restaurants, JDV , is ok.

More to the point why did they think no one would notice?

And whats with taking your glass of wine with you to the toilet.  

That’s just weird , unhygienic and shows a lack of trust in his fellow diners.

On top of that why haven’t the media gone and done the ‘man of the people’ tour of his Herne Bay mansion?

The left seem to think John Key’s house is worthy of protests and comment – how about we get a look at his house… and perhaps ask the neighbours how they’d feel about the inevitable protests in the unlikely event that Cunliffe ever become PM?

    Brings a new meaning to “going on the piss”

    • Toryboy

      I wonder if it is too much to hope for that National will be printing 10,000 leaflets to be distributed over the next couple of days in Christchurch East pointing out to people what Labour is ‘really’ like.

  • kaykaybee

    As if the Prince of Herne Bay would eat fish and chips with the ghastly hoi polloi. I demand a Women’s Day house tour – he could donate the payment to his favourite charity.

    • Sponge

      “The Prince of Herne Bay” – I like that.

      • OhopeBeachBugger

        I’d modify slightly; the Ponce of Herne Bay looks a little better to me..

        • blokeintakapuna

          Prime Dickhead of Herne Bay is even better…

          • Statehousekid

            Just another champagne socialist. Keep the poor poor while I live on the pigs back.

          • Eiselmann

            OF course he’d be looking for President for life Cunliffe or as he’ll refer to himself in South Auckland…’ Da Prez 4 evas chur bro’

    • Dave

      Favourite charity – you mean his mate Matt McCartens Unite Union sinking fund.

      • kaykaybee

        lol – or the Fabian Society perhaps

    • Dani

      Yes! 10 pages of photos of the mansion, including his collection of portraits, Louis XV chairs, Harvard certificates and pasifika carvings.

      • kaykaybee

        bet they’re all there too Dani ;)

      • Ronnie Chow

        Plus the 100 identical neckties and that horrible smirk brace he wears when sleeping .

    • PhantomsDoc

      That would be the Labour Party???

  • Agent BallSack

    Hmmm he took wine to the toilet? Probably worried Darren Hughes would spike it.

    • Patrick

      The swiss ball tucked under Hughes’ arm was a dead giveaway.

      • GarethsPussy

        I don’t get it.

        Why would anyone take their drink to the toilet? I’ve never done it, never seen anyone do it…..what’s the most plausible explanation?

        Serious question.

        • AnonWgtn

          So nobody else either drank it, or pissed in it, when you were not looking.

          • Muffin

            I can imagine Andrew little dipping his knob into it while he was gone

          • ratmuncher

            Hhat knob?

          • Eiselmann

            He had a PA hide a bottle of the ‘really good stuff’ in the toilet….

          • Day Day

            He didn’t trust one of his companions to not drop something in his drink. Paranoid. Although a pic of Cunny passed out in JDV would provide amusement.

          • GarethsPussy

            That is flippin’ bizarre.

          • Patrick

            The “ketamine in the leader of the oppositions drink” trick, well known plan of attack. Bet John Key was behind it all.

          • ratmuncher

            All lefties are freeloaders – probably worried someone would pinch it.

          • stephen2d

            He went out for a smoke with his glass ;)

        • Patrick

          Well there is the old “rub your knob around the rim of the glass” trick

          • Agent BallSack

            Please, in the new quota labour that will be known as doing a lap around the flaps.

          • Sponge

            Just imagine the sight of Fenton doing that – urgh!

          • OT Richter

            Rim job?

        • BJ

          He thought he was back in his childhood when he used to run out of church with the collection bowl under the pretence he was busting to go to the toilet. Did the wine glass resurface?

        • Agent BallSack

          He probably forgot he was in Christchurch and you can buy distilled water for cooking up Dariens homebake at every corner dairy. True story.

        • Reid

          I’m guessing he’s a robot like Bender from Futurama so he doesn’t understand humans prefer not to inhale and exhale at the same time.

    • OT Richter

      Next thing we know, he will have an official taster. He is the King of Awesome after all.

    • conwaycaptain

      Is Darren Hughes of “I like young men” back in the country??

      • Agent BallSack

        I think he was recently but apparently he’s still troughing in London trying to break democracy. Typical socialist.

  • thor42

    Ewww…. taking your drink to the loo. I’ll bet he didn’t wash his hands afterwards either.
    This kind of thing just confirms his used-car salesman image.
    Not an ounce of sincerity and genuineness in him. He’s all sneering, whining “politics of envy” – nothing else.

    • Ronnie Chow

      Soon he’ll be wanting a taster like Mao and Hitler . Paranoia can twist a personality horribly , if Cunners has one . To be fair , he might have tipped out the wine and added water and a valium .

  • ratmuncher

    The reason they thought no one would notice is they know any mainstream reporter wouldn’t be able to get such a story past the beetle browed harridan that is most news editors.

    • BJ

      Nah, this was his personal private life mate – though I doubt it was his personal cheque

      • ratmuncher

        Nah personal and private would be dining with his family.

  • stephen2d

    What was wrong with one of the takeaway stores in Aranui or even a cafe in New Brighton? Not posh enough? What a fake!

    • Agent BallSack

      It’s a damned far cry from this….

      • Agent BallSack

        Or even this….

        • Toryboy

          Ahhhh…David Shearer, the snapper who actually jumps on the hook for you! haha!
          (sometimes I miss him)

        • Dave

          Back in Lange’s day, they could still afford Fish and Chips, nowadays, its bring your own fishing rod for Labour.

      • Sponge

        A friend of mine ending up flatting in that house. They had a photo of this nosh up on the fridge.

        • Bunswalla

          Which house Sponge? The photo was taken in Roger Douglas’s office at Parliament. Greasies from the fish and chip shop across the road in Molesworth Street.

          • Sponge

            Can’t recall the name of the street now – just up the road from Backbenchers though. Perhaps I have been fed a line of bullshit but the room was exactly the same.

          • Agent BallSack

            Both times I ate there (it was owned by a greek guy back then) it was expensive, greasy and tasted like shit.

      • johnbronkhorst

        So how did lange manage a round of fish and chips? Afterall he looks like he has already eaten all the pies!

  • Quinton Hogg

    Just had a look at the JDV menu.
    More gastro buzz words than you can poke a stick at.

    • Bunswalla

      Really? I read the dinner menu and found it not unreasonably priced, and worded for the average punter. Didn’t see any gastro buzz words, mind you I have travelled a bit, and don’t forget they offer onion rings and chips as sides so they can’t be that pretentious!

      • Quinton Hogg

        Buns, the French Café offers chips as sides.

        • Bunswalla

          Je reste ma valise

  • Toryboy

    It should be noted there has been a 14% swing to National in Herne Bay (basically all of Nikki Kaye’s 700 majority) since the Cunliffe’s moved in HAHAHAHA!!! – (Paula should slip him some real estate brochures for Western Heights to help with her 9 vote majority)

  • GazzW

    Let’s run the calculator over this. Cunners, Mrs Cunners and 20+ hangers-on. Let’s say 25 all up and lets be very conservative and say $100 per head. $2500 total or near enough (we can safely assume they didnt leave a tip).Who paid? I’ll bet they didn’t go dutch. I wonder what Poverty Action or the Sallies think about this overt display of rich prickism? Talk about ‘eat cake’.

    • Patrick

      Don’t worry, it’s ok the taxpayer will have bent over & taken one up the clacker again no doubt.

    • Quinton Hogg

      I would have picked $3-3.5K but I will run with your numbers.

      • GazzW

        Quinton, you could well be right. If the taxpayer didnt pick up the tab then sure as hell it would have been costed into the delegates conference fees paid by the peasant members of the party.

  • johnbronkhorst

    Yahooxtra Poll.
    Q: what do you think of labours policies?
    They will save the country……..12%
    Not sure……………………………….8%
    More Socialist rubbish……………61%
    Some good/ some bad…………..14%
    Don’t care……………………………..5%

    • OT Richter

      It always amuses me how people take the time to click “not sure”.

      • tarkwin

        Those people are the different Labour factions. Dear leader tells the story so many different ways to different people that even the zealots have no idea what he means.

      • John Q Public

        Those are the same people who say they’d vote Labour, but pick John Key as “preferred prime minister”.

  • Dan

    So many Cunliffe threads at the moment. Looks like the right isn’t worried.

    • Dave

      Nah mate, its just he is the biggest liar / hypocrite, there is so much ammo around, and worst part, Cunnliffe does not realize what he has said or done.

    • johnbronkhorst

      Hey I don’t agree with Billy Connelly’s politics either, but I still laugh at and repeat his jokes.
      In cunliffes case he mixed up policies for jokes….he should go on the stage……..after all it needs a good sweep and that is all he is qualified for!!

    • Mark

      Nah, National’s got it in the bag in 2014 thank God. Cuntliffe’s just a bit of light entertainment which is appropriate as he is a lightweight.

    • GazzW

      Dan, ironically the labour party conference will have proved to be a massive morale booster for the Nats. Question Time next week will be a classic!

      • Dan

        I dunno, National don’t seem to need any help coming up with ‘witty’ ways to avoid answering questions – I’m sure next week won’t be any different!

        • Ronnie Chow

          Try telling your mechanic his job . There are no questions relevant enough to be answered seriously , Dan .
          Labor is a like a shelf company run by Sheikhs.

          • Dan

            Crap response, you could have at least tried to be funny in your sweet nothingness.

          • Ronnie Chow

            Your profile picture is so manly , but then you are straight on to the personal attack . Why is that ?

          • Dan

            I just took my cue from your post, dude.

          • john Doe

            Back to the Standard for you now…shoo off ….hurry up..dont dither…bye

    • Bunswalla

      Dan the right is pissing itself, from what I can see.

      • CheesyEarWax

        No doubt, after wiping the tears of laughter from your eyes.

  • stephen2d

    Talk about dining with plebs, can anyone recommend me a place next monday evening in takapuna?

    • GazzW

      Spencer on Byron.

      • stephen2d

        Cheers

    • Bunswalla

      Also consider the Commons – a bit more pretentious than Spencer on Byron, and way more gastro buzz-wordy than the one in Chch, but very nice food and great service. Also I definitely recommend the fries ;-)

  • Tom

    The way he carries on, with his ego shining bright, it wouldn’t surprise me if the trip to the loo was just to ‘powder his nose’.

    Colombian marching powder would go a long way to explain his delusions of grandeur

    • Roland

      Great read that book if anyone wants to take the time…

  • conwaycaptain

    Just read the JDV me and u.
    Cor you wouldn’t meet any of the Cuzzie Bros there.
    The Hairy legged tufted armpit wimmin of the Labia party YES

  • pukakidon

    The social circle he hangs out with would never be able to put up with the stench of the scum in South Auckland. He rides on the back of those Labour supporting rats that scurry about below him on his scraps and throw aways.

    The Prince of Hernbay is of higher breeding than that. If the poor are hungry let them eat cake!!!!!!
