Q+A: best PM, Cunliffe

There’s a comma in the headline.

On Q+A this morning:

Former Labour leader David Cunliffe says Haere rā to Parliament – he talks to Jessica Mutch about the highs and lows of his political career.

See Valedictory Statement – David Cunliffe

Cunliffe concedes that arroagnce was a problem for his bid to become Prime Minister.

Both Cunliffe and Mike Williams say that Labour organisation and resources were at a very low ebb is 2014 and are much better now.

    Of coarse saying Michael is a former Labour Minister is similar to say Roger is a former Labour Minister, and leaving it at that.
