David Shearer cannot buy a vowel at the moment. He is confusing everyone.
After stuttering and stumbling through name-dropping New Zealand’s Olympic medal winners Shearer joked about turning up late to meetings this past fortnight. Mighty fine when you are trying to lead and inspire others in your Party and cannot be bothered getting to a meeting on time because you slept in. Can anyone imagine Helen Clark saying this in the time the knives were out to get her?
Shearer then bum fluffed acknowledging David Holman/Hoffman/Howard (it’s David Howman who is married to former TV3 reporter Jane Young) Director of the World anti-doping agency WADA.
Looks like Ian Fraser will be churning out a few more hours teaching Shearer how to speak publicly and not stuff his lines up while trying to score cheap political points.
