Unions: It wasn’t David’s fault, we back Cunliffe

The cognitive dissonance of the left continues with two union leaders on Radio New Zealand professing undying love for David Cunliffe.

They both think that poor old David Cunliffe was hard done by.

These guys are so out of touch it isn’t funny.

There seems to be this continuing narrative that Labour should have gone further to the left.

Have they not noticed that 75% of people didn’t vote for labour and David Cunliffe.

Didn’t they notice that the election result delivered up numbers for the centre-right of something around 65% support.

New Zealand is not a hard left union dominated society.

Kiwis are industrious, self-starting and free thinkers. They do not like being told what to think and do by union bovver boys.

Union membership outside of the public sector is under 10%.

These dinosaurs do not represent New Zealand anymore.

The Labour party needs to focus on their brand and name. It says “Labour”…that is those in work.

They should be representing workers, not the luvvies and the losers of society.

Once they start to do that then they might have a chance at taking the treasury benches again.

Part of me though wants these dinosaurs to continue to influence the Labour party, that way the party will spend several generations in opposition.

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 who takes no prisoners.
