When the going gets tough, the tough get going! I have not witnessed as much flak aimed at one individual as that against David Cunliffe in recent months. It has really bordered on the personal at times.
Has he considered throwing it all in and resigning? Not in your life. Unlike the PM John Key who considered resigning after the cuppa tea incident with John Banks.
David Cunliffe has made a few gaffes, learning on the job you might say. But he is a reputed debater and should do well against John Key who doesn’t have his team of advisers with him in such debates.
