  • A complete and utter cuntastrophe for Labour.
    Shearer is a meat puppet with Robertsons hand up him.
    Dead man walking, the poofs will gut him in February.

    What a disgrace he is as a representative of people and while doing so is pulling the party leaders high salary, what an ape, what a pack of monkeys he has to lead… maybe he just will be thinking… “damn them all… damn them all to hell…” serve out the time, make some more money and then fade away. H1 and H2 will be sniggering, yet those two bitches started the rot that the labour party has within its ranks today. The Labour Party is cancerous and needs removing from the political scene.

    • Lion_ess

      As the minutes tick by, they seem to be doing a fine job of removing themselves from the political scene.

    These are just getting too painful to watch. Can you imagine Shearer fronting the world media if he was at an overseas conference or how he would handle a crisis in this country like the ChCh earthquakes? Its almost like a cruel joke by the Labour party now. Goff may have been a twat but at least he presented better than this.

      Poor old Goofy’s veins would have popped by now SJOO.

    We aren’t dumb David…..we know you will be leader come February 2013. But we all know March 2013 is a completely different story.

  • Teletubby

    The Labour Party is now paying the price for the ruthless reign of H1 & H2. Any threat was smashed so effectively that there was a huge void beneath them. Four years on the void remains unfilled. Shearer was a desperate attempt to parachute in someone they thought may have charisma and leadership because they had nothing on offer in the party ranks, this move is a direct copy from the National playbook, the difference of course is that it worked for National. Problem for Labour is they still have no natural leaders in their ranks, they have plenty of aspirants but no one who stands out.

    Someone might be able to help me out here. Who advises Shearer on these things? As I have previously posted I reckon he’s a nice guy (although as some people might say nice guys come last) but he is either very naive or alternately the advice he gets is utter rubbish. Still feel sorry for him as he has been given an extremely poisoned chalice.

    • RightOfGenghis

      He is taking advice from a trojan horse. After watching that debacle there is no other plausible explanation

  • Phar Lap

    Seems Shearer could be Lie-bours leader in the 2017 election.Shearer is financially illliterate,and it will take him five years to cut the mustard.Liebour would rather sacrifice winning in 2014,with Cun*liffe.That shows that the Lie-bour Party are so deep in dysfunctional behavior.Shearers caucus arse lickers know if Cun*liffe got the reins of leader,name of Goff ,King,Mallard Parker,Cosgrove would be dumped,making way for new blood. In fact support for Shearer is not about that poor unfortunate,its about the geriatric hangerons who are long past their use by date and a waste of space.

    So, if I hear correctly the “endorsement” vote was unanimous – including Silent T???? So how come he is singled out for disloyalty? Don’t get me wrong, I’m as happy as a pig in muck seeing this bunch of idiots implode, but really ……

  • conwaycaptain

    The de facto Leader(s) of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition are now Wussel Norman and Winston Peters.
    Now what will happen if they + Liebour get a majority in 2014?? Who will be PM and how long woill they last before they tear themselves to pieces
