PM takes Cunliffe’s advice

When the Cunliffe became Labour leader he issued a challenge to the PM.

Inexplicably – the PM’s now taken that up:

With only 71 days to the election, Prime Minister John Key is taking an extended overseas holiday, thought to be at his bolt-hole on the Hawaiian island of Maui.

When the Herald contacted his office yesterday for comment on renewed calls for Foreign Minister Murray McCully to resign, it was told he was on holiday and would not be back at work until July 21.

Assuming he plans to spend Sunday July 20 reading Cabinet papers for the next day’s meeting, that’s a 10-day break.

Good on the PM for getting a break now while he can.

Gives David Cunliffe a great chance to grab the agenda and inject some hope back into Labour’s campaign….oh wait he’s gone skiing for a week.
