Two versions

David Cunliffe’s no-show on The Nation  at the weekend was originally blamed on a decision from his leader’s office.

The story wasn’t quite so clear last night:

“I consulted – we reached a team decision we offered our finance spokesman to  talk about Budget issues it appeared to be a broader interview than economic  development,” Mr Cunliffe says.

“I didn’t stop David Cunliffe appearing it was his own decision,” Mr Shearer  says.

Which version is correct isn’t as significant as the fact there are two versions and both men are giving theirs publicly.

It’s a sure sign that the current leader is trying to assert his position and the aspiring leader isn’t over keen on helping him do it.
