Labour Conference 2013-1

  1. We finally found someone better than Helen Clark.

    Plenty of things David Cunliffe can’t do, crack jokes, discuss All Black winger prospects.  But what he does is set pieces that rock the house like New Zealand hasn’t seen since Billy Graham toured New Zealand in 1959

  2. No one had anything to fight about

    Which paradoxically meant by Sunday the media had to turn from “conflict” stories to ‘content” stories.  Labour has fresh policies that are making industries quake and rage.

  3. The residual factions got crushed

    The Te Pou boys tried to orchestrate against Nanaia Mahuta to be Maori Vice President, and whipped their teams as hard as they could… … and were resoundingly crushed 50 votes to 400

  4. Fresh policy got launched that was progressive, populist and timely

    Everyone got to say Booo Jerry Brownlee … and woohoo for Christchurch with a Labour Mayor, Labour ticket, Labour by-election, and Labour housing and development policy

  5. Punters loved us again

    Saturday night partying hard Cunliffe had hen night girls getting autographs and photos. Young strangers were pulling him aside with cranky ideas

  6. The people ruled the party… … like democracy was supposed to work

    …And caucus really figured out – nonplussed by the dazzling speech – that they work for us.

    That was fun…although I don’t think their rather conservative parental types necessarily approved of their daughters’ political choices…

    And who the heck are you calling cranky 😛

    Great to see Anderton as campaign manager in Christchurch East.

    Perhaps Hone will see the light and merge as well? He’s got more in common with Labour than Maori Party.

    And Norman would do fine in Labour as well. Generally.

    I’m happy to see another Te Pou plan defeated.
