Shearer’s “nothing” speech

David Shearer’s state of the nation speech was a yawn fest. Full of promise to look at things but no specifics. Labour and Shearer are only promising to have a look at this or that, the speech was really just a bland collections of bumper stickers, and about as thick as the bumper sticker.

 “Labour’s top priority would be jobs, boosted by its promise to build 10,000 affordable houses a year, leader David Shearer said today.

In his scene-setting speech for 2013, which contained no major new policy initiatives, Shearer said the country was looking for a government that would roll up its sleeves and back them.”

Bullshit. The country is looking for a leader who doesn’t throw taxpayers’ money around like lollies.

A leader who doesn’t make pie-in-the-sky promises.

Shearer can’t even run his own party, let alone the country.

Already the activists are talking up Meteria Turei’s speech against Shearer’s yawn fest.

    Yawn fest!? It would have been more fun chewing tinfoil than watching that clown – and the muppets in the audience clapping on que! What a joke!

    He keeps talking himself and Liebour up as the future but they have NO POLICY!!!!! Continually criticize National but with NO SOLUTIONS!!!!! Sort of like all the Liebour and left supporters – NO FUCKEN IDEA!!!!!

    • Ronnie Chow

      Sort of like Romney .

  • Pete George

    Even the left is calling it ‘unbelieveable”. Questions need to be asked. How authentic is the ‘nice Mr Shearer’?

  • Stuart Dumphries

    Did he make a speech? I didn’t know.

    • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

      I heard that the earth shook when he spoke.

        No it was the audience pissing themselves with laughter.

  • I thought it was a bit sinister myself:
    His actual words threaten the dairy industry. He wouldn;t of course but it is sick making that he’d scaremonger over NZ’s primary industry.

      Thanks Monique , no doubt your words will fall on deaf ears, be it your beloved left or this blog owner who for some reason believe farmers are bludgers.
      Sadly I believe your chart will be dismissed as an apparition. So Shagger is now talking about an knowledge economy again, geez don’t these fools realise the country has been there done that. So he really offers nothing new, well that will come as a huge surprise to everyone, not. Where’s the imagination, shit I could easily think of 10 things that Shagger could do that would make a huge difference but it’s the same old horseshit and socialisim is the light and truth, sad so sad.

        Hey cows, don’t judge everyone on the actions of a few! I think there are a lot more people on this blog for farmers than against them – like me! I always read your posts as you make a lot of sense – and like your humour too! Chin up!

    I beg to differ Mr Whale. If you had seen Sheep’s speech byte on TV, you will be amazed. Sheep declared to the unwashed that he is “refreshed”. The unwashed clapped enthusiastically. He made fun of Emperor’s new found enthusiasm for the Apprentice scheme. The unwashed roared. The left wing media thinks Sheep’s Kiwibuild scheme is a sure winner. Uncle mad McCarten somehow has found that Key’s popularity is fading. The toxic Greens had a picnic in the park which was attended by a huge crowd of about 40 people. Doom and gloom everywhere for the Tories now…..

    I am “refreshed, fired up and raring to go” – David the Sheep Shearer. Watch his hair raising speech in this video and be afraid Tories.

    • Mr_V4

      What else can the man say: “I’m stale, tired as Trevor Mallard, and only here for the perks”?

  • thor42

    The same old sound-bites. The same old nonsensical promises -10,000 “affordable” houses per year. Yeah, riiiight…..
    The same old method of funding silly policies – borrow and tax. **Never a word** on reining in welfare spending.
    I reckon that the day that Shearer promises to rein in welfare spending will be the day that I run in the nuddy down Lambton Quay.

    • Agent BallSack

      I reckon you could get a crowd of 10,000 to vote for that.

  • Mr_V4

    Shearer could get the guitar out to this.
    I’m substitute in Grants bbq for Al’s though.
