Michael Cullen’s support of Andrew Little must have sounded a bit like a balloon deflating.
A former supporter of Grant Robertson, he is now backing Andrew Little.
Sir Michael Cullen has returned to the Labour fold after eight years of self-imposed exile as a Government appointee to NZ Post with a warning to the party’s finance spokesman, Grant Robertson.
Sir Michael was at the Labour party conference over the weekend as a delegate.
Cullen said he had been wary of being actively involved while he was chair of NZ Post because it was a state-owned enterprise. However, his time had ended last Monday and he was now a free man.
Cullen had supported Grant Robertson in the last leadership campaign but said he was impressed with present Labour leader Andrew Little. “People are very happy we’ve got a stable, united caucus and remarkable lack of deep division.”
