Labour leader David Cunliffe had to call off a press conference after an angry citizen drove up beside him and a group of reporters and swore, gave Cunliffe the fingers and honked his horn.
Cunliffe was responding to Prime Minister John Key's pre-Budget speech. He was outlining Labour's fiscal fundamentals outside his New Lynn electorate office when the ranting man drove up beside Cunliffe on the footpath.
The middle-aged white man was clearly agitated and yelled at Cunliffe from his car while giving him the fingers.
"F... you, f... Labour, f... unemployment," he said.
Cunliffe's staff called an end to the press conference as the man continued to yell obscenities.
"F... you, man, there's no future," he said to Cunliffe.
It was clear the man was not a National Party supporter when he said: "f...... National's no better, we may as well have a coalition of the f........"
The man said "unemployment isn't working" before driving away.
