Have you noticed? David Cunliffe only has one tie

I noticed something that Cunliffe’s media people really should have sorted out – it appears that the Leader of the Opposition only has one tie:

Here he is returning from his beard-growing holiday:

270813-david-cunliffe

Then the candidacy announcement:

david_cunliffe_announces_bid_for_labour_leadership_785180214

Then while on the Political Idol show:

Then on the campaign trail in Blackball:

P1070180

Then there were the glossy promo shots – need to get the lucky tie in:

And in the campaign videos:

And again while smarming it up on The Nation:

And at the victory speech:

Hmm . .  lots of cameras around – better wear the same tie I’ve been wearing for the last 3 months:

And again for the Andrea Vance life story interview:

9193990

I know if I were forced to debate against John Key I’d be bringing all my good luck charms with me.  Looks like David did for his first debate as leader of the opposition:

David-Cunliffe-GETTY1200-4

And so for the conference speech showing how Labour is full of new ideas…

Is he trying to empathise with the poor squashed middle classes – ‘We’re so poor we’ve even had to cut down on tie-buying!’ Herne Bay problems??

Maybe someone should start a campaign to make 2014 a bit fairer by donating ties so at least he’s got more than one to wear on the campaign trail.  But then again, I suppose he wouldn’t want to wear them if he wants to fit in by being bro in South Auckland.

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.
