David Shearer’s secret electoral weapon…grrrrr

Filmed at Waitangi by TV3, they have captured David Shearer’s secret weapon…weird young people and David Shearer making scratching hand signals.

Weird I know, but it must have some meaning…you know like the hand signals that crips and bloods make in the gang land of LA:

The attached summary on theYoutube clip explains…well sort of:

David Shearer and his eager Young Labour supporters gathered for a bizarre photo op at Waitangi.
In unison, the group growled and hissed at the camera, performing what one of them called the “Shearer lion hands”.
More laughter followed a (serious?) joke from Shearer: ‘make sure everyone knows it’s not a pussycat, alright’.
Where are these mysterious Shearer claws? When will he get them out and use them to scratch ‘Teflon John’?
Filmed by Simon Morrow and edited by Kellee Laufiso-Finau.

Weird people do weird things. It all just reminds me of a Monty Python sketch:

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.
