If Nick Smith is a retread…

Is Shearer really that stupid?

Last week he attacked the Government for an Auditor General’s report that criticises process, and this week he appoints Shane Jones to his front bench, pending an Auditor General’s report that will inevitably criticise the process.

And before that, Shearer criticises Nick Smith’s return in the Cabinet reshuffle when he must have known ‘retread’ Annette King would be charging back.

These guys really are that dumb.

    …King and Jones are also retreads, Mallard and Dalziel are blowouts and Cunliffe remains deflated.

    It’s a a tired looking lineup.

    • Mr_Blobby

      Same with National when it comes to a sad looking line up.

    • GregM

      Yep, and Robertson is the skidmark.

  • PlanetOrphan

    Retreads are only garaunteed to go upto 80km/hr …
    I wonder if Labour would consider a coalition with my “Starve The Orphans” party …
    I Might pick up some second hand MP’s M8!
    I could sell them off on trade me 3 years later for a profit I’m sure
    … hardly used … cheap to run … full service record … “House Broken” … etc …

    PS. Maybe I’m being too flippant, I should add some typos, I don’t want to change the face of Politics or anything.

    Why would he bring back that old boiler Anette King Kong?

    Just when we thought Laboure could’nt make life eaiser for JK then Mr Magoo Shearer has this crazy reshuffle of dud cards lol easier

  • Liberty

    More good news. Labour now have their only attack weapons sitting in the back row.
    Duckman might be a prat. But he is also skilled debater and Labour will be lacking.
    Parliament is going to be like 1974 without Muldoon.
    Then again Fishwife is back .
    That’s enough to go do some work instead of watching parliament.

  • Whafe

    I mean the current Labour strategy is working, so why change it hey :D :D
    Seriously, if they were a commercial entity / business, they would have been dead and buried years ago… What a joke…
    They are like Americans with their shockingly bad coffee, they actually think it is good coffee….. (apologies to the few from the US of A whom know the coffee in the US of A is shocking.

      I know of one good coffee shop in Las Vegas, but it’s the only one in the whole of the US.

    David Parker can’t be both AG and Minister of Finance, so it suggests that Russel Norman will be Finance Minister in a Green-Labour coalition to implement his social credit theories about the money supply. Transport, Revenue, and Police have not been allocated, so it suggests the Greens will take those portfolios as well. Annette King is old, Goff is at the end of his career, and Maryan Street is not taken seriously, so that indicates that health, foreign affairs and environment will also go to the Greens or Winston Peters. Maori Affairs hasn’t been allocated to a Labour MP either, so it suggest that Hone Harawira will take that portfolio.
    Now remember that there is a good chance of these people forming the next government.

    • parorchestia

      It’s too awful a prospect to contemplate.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    What are you talking about you nasty Tories? All the MSM have declared that Sheep has done a tremendous job. They have also said bringing Aunty back into the front row is a master stroke which will keep Naked Emperor and Tonsils Tony awake at night. Sheep is marching towards victory boys. Be afraid, very afraid…even Emperor was visibly worried in today’s news.

    • parorchestia

      Get one thing straight, Mr. In any other country we would be regarded as Democrats, and you as raving lunatics with crazy policies that simply cannot work! NZ has become so corrupted by socialistic thought that there is no right wing party at all.

  • Mr_V4

    If Annette King becomes health minister at least we might get that inquiry into swiss ball injuries sooner rather than later.

  • Positan

    The question is posed, “Is he really that stupid?”

    The glaringly obvious answer is “Yes.”

    • PlanetOrphan

      It’s all the typos in his speech patterns M8!
      He’s trying not be be facetious :-)

      Just ask “New-ScabLanders” @ theStandard M8!
