Last night David Cunliffe appeared on Campbell Live to give his first interview since Labour lost the election and he stood down as leader.

Cunliffe looked more exhausted than any comparable cat picture on the internet, explaining that he had been doing a lot of “soul-searching” in the past week. The man was on the brink, the air was poignant and tense. And then this happened.

Such a lonely Dave.
