The left is hurting real bad

The left wing is hurting.

Their messiah actually turned out to?be just a very naughty boy.

Scott Yorke isn’t happy:

Now that Labour has lost the election, it?s time for the party?s caucus to focus on the issues that really matter. I?m pleased to say that a number of them have made a flying start.

These are the issues that matter:

  • Anonymously briefing journalists and attacking potential rivals within Labour?s caucus.
  • Forming camps and factions to advance favoured candidates.
  • Spraying opinions all over the media that probably shouldn?t be aired in public.
  • Showing a lack of grace or humility.
  • Encouraging party members to locate and dispatch traitors within the party.
  • Not knowing when to retire from Parliament.
  • Refusing to accept any responsibility for disaster, and giving speeches blaming others for the epic defeat.
  • Making contact with Cameron Slater.

He added also in a separate post what the election result?meant for the Labour party:

It turns out that all those Labour voters who didn?t have landlines weren?t actually Labour voters.

Labour ran a fantastic campaign, but managed to go down in a historic defeat. These things cannot possibly be related.

Democracy is a really terrible idea, because sometimes the party I support does badly.

This defeat is entirely Kim Dotcom?s and Cam Slater’s fault, so there?s really no need for Labour to reflect, because it?s always someone else?s fault.

Oh, I forgot to blame the media.

Labour ran a fantastic campaign.

If David Shearer is the answer, we probably need to start asking some different questions.

It?s possible for Labour to win in 2017. It?s also possible that the next Labour prime minister is still at primary school. Or hasn?t been born yet.

There is always hope. John Key might eventually tire of the job after another five or six years in power.

Labour ran a fantastic campaign.

Labour must unify. If it does not present a united front, National will be in power for the next two terms. The only way for Labour to unify will be for those on the left/right to locate and destroy all internal enemies on the left/right. Let the fighting begin.

Labour ran a fantastic campaign.

David Cunliffe did nothing wrong. They crucified Jesus too.

Labour ran a fantastic campaign.
