David Shearer provides today's Quote of the Day, via Stuff:
Shearer said he had talked through the issues with Cunliffe at the weekend, but that was a private conversation.He said Cunliffe was smart, hard-working and was covering a portfolio important to the party.He said he was concerned that months after the leadership was settled, in a run-of with Cunliffe, the debate about that was continuing.Shearer said Cunliffe had not expressed unhappiness at his leadership and was commited to supporting him.Commenting on his own popularity rating, and asked if he was not connecting with voters, Shearer said: "I do not believe I am not not connecting."
All those "not"s; even David Shearer seems to be confused. A single negative such as "I'm not connecting with voters" is self-explanatory. A double negative such as "I'm not not connecting" becomes a positive. But Mr Shearer has gone for a triple negative!
UPDATE: It's a double "Oh dear"! Look who's leading Stuff's latest poll on David Shearer...
