David Cunliffe has said a lot of sorrys recently, the latest and silliest is for his scarf:
. . . After being criticised for his red scarf, Mr Cunliffe says he won’t wear it as much.
“You know what – I reserve the right to put it back on occasionally,” he says. “But it won’t be on every day… I quite like the colour red.” . . .
If anyone’s vote is influenced by a scarf they deserve what they get.
It’s not about the scarf, it’s about the fact that it looked like part of a costume for a part he’s playing and his wearing it seemed affected as a lot of what Cunliffe does and says does.
One of the big criticisms of him is that he’s a different man to different audiences and that he’s not comfortable in his own skin.
When he gets down to being sorry for his scarf, is it any wonder?
