Top tweets about Cunliffe wining Labour leadership
Here's a selection of various Twitter reactions to David Cunliffe being elected as leaders of the Labour Party - all in reverse chronological order. More will be added.
Breaking News: following the results from his hotel room in San Francisco, Trevor Mallard has just capsized.
I'm also 'shocked' that the instant response of our political journalists appears to be to start trolling. #nzpol
Now the ABCs should get shown the door, and that's good. If Cunliffe can keep his dittoheads at arm's length he should be a cracking leader.
Grant Robertson won't rule out being Labour Leader once David Cunliffe has done "3 or 4 terms as PM". "You never know"
Parliamentary Services now laying down plastic on the floor of Labour's caucus room . . .
Mathematicians work out membership of ABC faction is directly proportional to time they took to congrat Cunliffe on twitter
Holyoake's breathe through your nose advice might be best for new Labour leadership right now. Need to calm Caucus and the public first.
Has Chris Trotter denounced David Cunliffe yet?
@ListenerLive which way did TV3's second preferences go?
All those MPs that voted against Cunliffe are tweeting congrats to him. Love it. Reshuffle here we come!
Labour vote Cunliffe 51.5% (Caucus 32.35, Members 60.14, Affil 70.77), Robertson 32.97% (47.06/26.71/17.3), Jones 15.88% (20.59/13.15/11.92)
Grant Robertson wouldn't answer my question on whether David Cunliffe will be a better leader than him.
Just for fun, Grant Robertson should've said Cunliffe had 98% of his loyalty.
It's going to be like the Red Wedding in the Labour caucus on Tuesday! #gameofnews
Have all Labour MPs been directed to tweet the same thing? "Congrats, we're united, bring on 2014."
Robertson thanking his supporters. Phil Twyford and Jacinda Ardern smile ruefully.
Well Cunners, fire up your chainsaw, get the petrol and the lighter fluid mate, cos jesus h christ do you have some deadwood to clear out
@annetterongotai Only 11 MPs supported David. Eeeeeek. How will that first caucus go?
Cunliffe as Leader. Its like Scar becoming leader of Pride Rock in Lion King coz the hyenas wanted him,even though his family cant stand him
@DavidCunliffeMP Guess you won't be sitting behind me any more. I will miss your quick quips. Well done and good luck. :)
I wonder who will be looking to retire next year after Cunliffe won? #friendlypush
All the Labour MPs now tweeting their loyalty to Lord Cunners of Herne Bay have me in internal hysterics.
Congratulations to David Cunliffe. A clear result. Now bring on the 2014 election so we can get rid of this awful government!
@chrishipkins Will you resign given you're public position on Cunliffe a year ago?
National MPs practicing in the mirror to say Cuntliffe so it doesn't quite sound like they are saying it that way.
Maybe David Shearer should do a Kevin Rudd and try to come back. Just to alleviate the predictability.
David Cunliffe will take Labour back to the government benches in 2014. All hands on deck folks! NZ needs a Labour win.
@MaryanStreetMP But he's the person you didn't vote for, right?
Congrats David. A convincing victory. You will have the support of the caucus. Onward to a Labour victory 2014.
Thank you. Whether you supported me, Grant, or Shane, we are a stronger and more unified party. Labour is ready and united to win in 2014.
"I'm not expecting to have his trousers around his ankles at the first meeting" - Cunliffe on his first question time showdown with Key
Chris Trotter already at work on his 'David Cunliffe and the Dictatorship of the Proletariat' column.'
My pick for deputy is @jacindaardern. She's talented, popular, young and will be the best choice for caucus unity.
I hope Labour picks a talented MP as deputy leader, like Clare Curran or Sue Moroney. Someone who will really resonate with the public.
I think the Labour caucus should show David Cunliffe the exact loyalty he showed Phil Goff and David Shearer :-)
Congratulations @DavidCunliffeMP leader of the New Zealand Labour Party. Powerful mandate won fair and square.
Parker will be Deputy
Another blow to all the copy that will be written about DISUNITY. DC won in the first round. Ha. #LabourDome
David Cunliffe's Red Wedding should be fun
A great day for left-wing politics in New Zealand. Congrats @DavidCunliffeMP
Did anyone actually pick a first-round win?
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO [Gurgle] OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
