On David Cunliffe: for all the times he embarrassed himself, his achievement on telecommunications reform changed New Zealand.
I've been friends with @DavidCunliffeMP since 1980s university debating. Great intellect, genuinely cared, did his utmost for people. 1/2
Stand a cat in Cunliffe's electorate and you'll be all good, I reckon.
I'm gunna miss David Cunliffe. Especially when he talks like a pirate
Talk of Labour's vulnerability in New Lynn may be overstated - National has also lost its local champion & ace campaigner Tim Groser
Cunliffe to retire from politics http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/political/317003/cunliffe-to-retire-from-politics … Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.
New Lynn could be interesting in 2017. @DavidCunliffeMP 's held it easily , but National's won the party vote there at the last 2 elections
Who knew that David Cunliffe couldn't continue in politics without Hekia Parata.
David Cunliffe is living proof that if you dedicate your life to politics you can almost achieve something.
So David Cunliffe isn't standing in New Lynn again. Thoughts on who'll be putting their hand up for that seat in 2017? #nzpol
@KirkSerpes Priyanca would be great for that seat. Very competent. Very connected.
Trevor Mallard for New Lynn?
Laila Harré for New Lynn 2017?
Len Brown for New Lynn 2017?
For real tho, he was a v good telco minister but suffered from the unusal problem for politicians of seeming far less authentic than he was
Farewell to David Cunliffe! He was truly the best of us. (*source: Cunliffe, D., Curriculum Vitae, 2012)

@NewstalkZB I suppose Labour needs that train to go to New Lynn now too?
I got kicked out of young labour for supporting @DavidCunliffeMP and tbh I'd do it all again. Best of luck David. You'll be missed
One of my favourite @DavidCunliffeMP moments was telling him he was one of my favourite people. He told me I needed to meet more people.
