Labour’s current Leader David Shearer has been busy today trying to shut down leadership speculation ahead of his party’s leadership conference this weekend.
He’s labelled the criticism of him as ‘bloggers talking to bloggers’. Unfortunately for Shearer, many of the people calling for his head have not been bloggers. However, National will be hoping he’s done enough to save his job for now.
By the way, calling John Key ‘nice’ is in stark contrast to what Shearer was calling him a few short weeks ago.
When Shearer was shooting himself in the foot with the GCSB tape debacle, he labelled the PM a liar who couldn’t be trusted.
So after today’s performance, can we assume Shearer’s new story is that John Key is a nice man – who’s a liar that can’t be trusted?
