The full Labour rankings

September 23rd, 2013 at 5:45 pm by David Farrar

Okay, here’s the full list, with the changes from current rankings:

MP Rank Change
Cunliffe 1 +23
Parker 2 +1
Robertson 3 -1
King 4 +2
Jones 5 +2
Ardern 6 -2
Cosgrove 7 -2
Hipkins 8 2
Mahuta 9 +2
Moroney 10 +3
Twyford 11 -3
Street 12 -3
Shearer 13 -12
Sio 14 0
Goff 15 0
Wall 16 +15
Little 17 +2
Mackey 18 +7
O’Connor 19 -2
Clark 20 -8
Lees-Galloway 21 +5
Faafoi 22 +7
Beaumont 23 +7
Woods 24 -4
Fenton 25 -9
Robertson 26 +7
Mallard 27 -6
Dyson 28 -5
Curran 29 -11
Prasad 30 -2
Huo 31 -4
Tirikatene 32 +0
Whaitiri 33 +1
Dalziel -12

Okay so who are the winners and losers.

Winners

  • Louisa Wall up 15 places to No 16. Well deserved. She did an excellent job getting a controversial bill through Parliament without great rancor.
  • Moana Mackey up 7. Also well deserved. Mackey has never been given a significant role and I rate her as an effective MP. Will never be a star but is solid,
  • Lees-Galloway up 5. As Junior Whip may end up senior whip if they make Government.
  • Sue Moroney up . As Senior Whip will be a key advisor to Cunliffe.

Losers

  • Clare Curran, down 11 to 29. Has lost her prized Comms/ICT portfolio but remains an Associate as consolation. However hard to see how she can hope for better than a Select Committee Chair if they win
  • Darien Fenton down 9 to 25.  Little Ministerial prospects for her also.
  • David Clark, down 8 from 12 to 20. This one is the shocker. Clark has been seen as one of the most promising of the 2011 intake and it is hard to work out why he got demoted so far, except presumably backing the wrong person.
  • Jacinda Ardern, demoted from 4 to 6 and no longer the highest ranked woman. Also lost Welfare/Social Development.

Overall not a huge shakeup in terms of rankings. Four biggish winners, four losers and a few move about a wee bit.

I’ll do a separate post on the portfolio changes.

    Clayton Cosgrove remains on the front bench? He must have rolled over and allowed Cunliffe to scratch his tummy.

    What is Cunliffe, some kind of misogynist?

    The elevation of Wall is nothing more than a patsy to the homofascist rainbow-shirt contingent and has nothing to do with her “effectiveness as an MP”

    Cunners hopes that the rainbow-shirts won’t align to undermine him for beating out their luvvie – the oleaginous Grant “Alf’s Not Here” Robertson.

    Anyone in parliament who supported such insane, blatantly left-driven and perverted nonsense will never get my vote, ever.

    Bill.

    “Anyone in parliament who supported such insane, blatantly left-driven and perverted nonsense will never get my vote, ever.”

    This was the act that finally convinced me the current group of MPs who posture as the National Party are unfit to govern. 50% of them voting in support of an extreme left winger like Wall?

    Fuck em. They can all go join Labour and I will never support National or John Key while any of those MPs are still in the party.

    Hamilton is not sane. They elected David Bennett and that weird, religious douchebag in Hamilton West.

    The only controversy was outside of Parliament, not inside it. Which speaks volumes about politicians’ relationship to those who elect them and also about people who think Wall actually in fact achieved anything particularly difficult.

    Wall then proved by supporting the man ban publicly that equality wasn’t what drove her marriage bill, but self-interest. I didn’t have much respect for her before the man ban, and now I have zero.
