The crucifixion of David Cunliffe

Artists impression of how the caucus vote went. Hipkins argued if Cunliffe survived drowning, then he was a witch.

The white smoke rising from the Caucus meeting after the sham leadership vote was Cunliffe's beard being burnt. It took a little longer for the meeting to start because Cunliffe's ribcage wouldn't crack right open and Mallard & Hipkins were fighting over his earlobes for trophies.

The media generated leadership crisis caused because the Journalists didn't take any notice of what members were wanting leading up to the conference was manufactured into a coup with 'dark forces' and the ABC clique took the opportunity to kill Cunliffe off.

In the end Shearer did not take the advice of Robert Winter or even Brian Edwards and kicked the only star performer he has in his Caucus off the front bench.

If Shearer thinks this abuse of one of his own at the manipulation of the msm and those dead wood MPs desperate to keep their own necks safe has allowed him to 'move on', just pop over to The Standard and see how well that's panning out.

The only winners here are the Green Party and the MANA Party as members watch the only MP articulating a left wing political vision get stomped in the face.

Kia Kaha Mr Cunliffe - it's an ugly day when good people get mugged and left to bleed in the street.

On a more positive note, I suppose it was the best TV interview Shearer's given. It's a thin silver lining, but when the cloud is shaped like a mushroom, you take what you can get.

Based on what Gower created, Labour can also be thankful Slater wasn't allowed into the Conference. If Paddy could manufacture a leadership crisis, Whaleoil could've triggered a mass suicide in Caucus.

Today's Caucus meeting was brought to you by the letters B-A-C-K-L-A-S-H.

"...Because he's the hero Lavour deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark (red) Knight..."

Of course he didn't take the advice of Winter and Edwards... he doesn't read blogs.

Your Caption: Artists impression of how the caucus vote went. Hipkins argued if Cunliffe survived downing then he was a witch. Doesn't make much sense. Do you mean DROWNING? and the "then he was witch" = "when he was a witch"? I'm not really sure. The bizarro grammar isn't that surprising 'cos you are clearly reeling from the serious blow that has been dealt to the "left".
Do you really believe Shearer was manipulated into making this move? Or is it more likely (as I suspect) that Shearer knew EXACTLY what he was doing - and had been waiting for this opportunity to rid himself of Cunliffe for some time? Was it perhaps Shearer himself who sowed the seeds for this manufactured leadership crisis?

I can't help but feel despair at today's actions from the party I have always voted for. Surely Labour MPs realise their strength is having the strongest MPs in the appropriate portfolios regardless of their quirks. They need that to call the National Party to account.
This year. vote education has been a mess - Labour should have been all over it.....
This year, the Dotcom disaster has been a gift from the gods......

So much fodder for an opposition!

Senior Labour MP's lack integrity...that is very clear now. I'll wait till Feb, if things are not tidied up then will join Greens, there is an alternative.
