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.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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