Shearer goes for the Guitar again

David Shearer only has one gimmick…the guitar…and he is using it again. Things must be pretty dire in Labour:

Being in front of an audience is standard when you’re the leader of the opposition, but David Shearer is about to grace the stage with a different kind of act.

This Saturday the Labour leader will show off his singing and guitar playing talents with a performance to open the Sandringham Spring Festival.

“I’ve never done anything serious with music, it’s just a good way to relax,” he says.

“I keep a guitar in my office in Wellington and at 10 at night when parliament’s over I will sit down and play for a few minutes.”

This year will be the fourth time the Mt Albert MP has opened the festival.
