Acting Nasty, Being Nasty

My mate Brian Edwards reckons David Shearer is just reading the script others have written for him – badly.

He’s right.

The real David Shearer once promised New Zealanders that he wouldn’t be following Trevor’s script.

His journey towards the dark side is now complete.

    Shearer’s mumbling incoherence covers an idealism that he does not believe in.

    Key nails it with honesty.

  • Pete George

    It’s not just his scripts that are trying to gloss over his deficiencies, there’s some curious stuff going on with Shearer’s image:

    And Shearer loks bad enough in question time trying to dish it out (via supplied notes) – how would he manage as Prime Minister on the receiving end? He thinks on his feet as well as the Black Caps play test cricket.

    What’s that idea that says the downfall of many people is a belief they have a greater potential and thus are promoted higher on the food chain, with devastating results. Shagger is one that has been promoted beyond his ability to perform, he should had stayed at the UN.

    Shearer can’t think on his feet, he isn’t witty and he’s no public speaker. That doesn’t have to make him a second rate politician but labour is trying to turn him into something he is just incapable of doing. He’s no frontman so leave that stuff to Chippy who thrives on it and leave Shearer to be his own man.

    I did not realise that Shearer’s teleprompter also wrote his speeches.

    I think Sheep has the Naked Emperor rattled. Emperor is ducking for cover now.
