At the beach in his suit, the perfect picture of pathetic

The NZ Herald is going all in on David Cunliffe.

Yesterday they papped him at the beach in his suit, the perfect picture of pathetic.

David Cunliffe is finished, lord knows why he thinks he can continue when he has had the worst result in 92 years for the Labour party.

He is now past the point at which he can remain in parliament. His petulance and refusal to accept responsibility means that for him to sit on the backbenches is a serious risk to the long term stability of the party.

The first job for caucus is to get him out of the leadership, then they need to rinse him comprehensively by releasing polling numbers and other such embarrassments in order to ensure he quits parliament altogether.

I’m not sure Labour has the stones for such wet work, but it is what National would do with such a pretender.

David Cunliffe was weighed and measured by the electorate and has been found wanting.

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.
