David Shearer 2012 Redux – Shaft version

I did one of these compilations at the beginning of last year. David Shearer over-delivered on my expectations.

With the Labour sheep expected to publicly back Shearer in February – 2013 promises to be the year of the um.

So I thought a redux version and then starting thinking about some music to go with it…the choice was obvious really I chose the theme music for Shaft – because sooner or later that’s what he’s going to get – the shaft… if not by Cunliffe then by Robertson.

Since we are talking about Robertson I see that Rob Salmond’s back in the building as Shearer’s ‘political director’ from January.

Another Clark retread and Grant Robertson fanboi. Must be setting him up for a by-election somewhere.  New Lynn?

Shearer really is surrounded by Robertson acolytes now.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
