Most Labour MPs preferences were known in advance of the vote. Patrick Gower has some info on some last minute changes including Parker being the 7th vote for Jones. Based on this, the above is the likely (but no way to know for sure as a secret ballot) voting preferences for the caucus.

    It would be fitting if Cunliffe came clean on whether he was complicit, along with King, Goff, and Clark, organising lifelong suppression of name, facts, and figures of an ex-Labour MP convicted of serious dishonesty charges. This charlatan, now being an elected member of a regional council, has influence over the allocation of millions of dollars of ratepayers’ money in contracts for different projects. He also scribes left-wing propaganda for Fairfax on occasions.

    [DPF: As the former MP was convicted in the 1990s when National was in Government, and David Cunliffe was not even an MP, you are way off beam]

    Despite Key’s popularity and that National has a substantial lead over labour in the polls, Cunliffe is a dangerous opponent. He only needs to gain a few percentage points to roll the current government and lead the country with a disastrous cocktail of the Greens, Labour and NZ First.

    Cunliffe may well bring a much more organised Labour party to the fight and be more damaging on any mistakes National makes. Fortunately for National Shearer was incapable of hitting those runs.

    Sir Cullen’s Sidekick: DPF must have forgotten to evaluate the usefulness of this post to you personally before posting on his blog. Can you believe his sense of entitlement? You could be doing more valuable things with your time like writing comments about posts you have no interest in.

    @ ross69 – read the numbers again; Cunliffe was Ardern’s last preference, which makes the odds on her ever serving as his deputy leader rather long.

    Reading that list of names just hammers home how far Labour have plummeted over the past decade or two..

    I just came in from counting how much each blade of grass on the back lawn has grown since Sunday. When I’ve finished writing on here I’ll enter the results on the charts and begin doing the front lawn. Somehow I’ve got to fit in counting the fleas on the dogs, measure and classify them and enter that data. Every now and then I wonder about being told I’m obsessive, spending my time doing blindingly meaningless stuff. When I read “How the caucus may have voted” I know I am not alone.

    Good work, David.

    I did say the other day that I thought Cunliffe had done a deal with Parker. That looks to have been the case.
