O’Sullivan on Shearer’s problem with the Greens

NZ Herald

Fran O’Sullivan outlines some of the many problems David Shearer faces, but none more so than the threat from the Greens:

[I]n Shearer’s case he faces competition for the political space.

His real enemy is not Key, or even Joyce, but Green co-leader Russel Norman.

Where Shearer and Joyce were boring and unconvincing, Norman was focused and succinct. While Labour vacillates and wastes its firepower on unfocused oppositional and short-sighted politics, the Greens are carving out a cogent message.

No one is in any danger of not knowing what they stand for. Shearer take note.

You are not in Somalia now Mr Shearer.
