I understand that Nanaia Mahuta’s baby is due in December. Â Does this mean that Shearer will time the reshuffle in the middle of BBQ season – and after the birth of Nanaia’s baby? Â January perhaps?
At least he won’t look as though he is sacking a pregnant woman. Â Instead he will be targeting a woman with a new baby, a woman who is most likely sleep deprived and a woman who under all this stress may well develop post-natal depression?
So nice to see such inspired leadership from Shearer.
It is good to know he cares about women. Â Is Sue Moroney sure that Shearer put his hand up in support of her paid parental leave bill? Â Hmmm… may be there is an option for Shearer in that. Â He could pay Nanaia to stay away and have an ‘Acting’ Education spokesperson in her place.
Whatever he decides Nanaia is right. Â Shearer has lead the charge in attacking Nanaia for being a woman of childbearing age.
