In my?con?tin?u?ing?series about?The Blink Test we?look at the?five poten?tial lead?ers for Labour after Phil Goff finally quits.

David Cunliffe is known by the unfortunately nickname,?Silent T. There is a reason for this, and when people blink?they think of a man who has worked hard to earn this?nickname. Smarmy, arrogant and aloof are accusations leveled?at Silent T.

Just because he has a Harvard education doesnt mean he can?lord it over the peasants. The problem is he believes he?can.

So Silent T fails the blink test.
