Shearer’s Dirty Little Secret


Duncan Garner put a few decent questions to Labour Leader David Shearer on his secret offshore bank account on his RadioLive Drive show last night.
David , um, Shearer was at his eloquent best.

Doesn’t know why he hasn’t put his money where his mouth is and invested in New Zealand, doesn’t remember how he was able to fill out tax returns every year and forget the register of pecuniary interests, unable to respond to Garner’s speculation about it being more than $100K. 

All in all – classic Mumblef**k.  Leaves more questions unanswered.  This is also um of the day.

This segment picks up from about 1 minute in.

    The clusterfuck that is Labours leader just keeps dynamically growing. Beautiful!

      I only wish this all broke a few weeks out from Election 2014.

    Ah, well that explains everything in ‘the case of the missing millions’…

    “nuh, nuh, nothing to see… urm, arm, hem, moo, moo, moove along now…”

    maybe if Shearer had a video of the whole affair he’d be a little more credible.

  • An interesting approach might be to ask him what he should have done should John Banks have found out about the account last year before Shearer ‘remembered’ it? Should he then have resigned for failing to declare it, and what would the penalty have been under the parliamentary rules for failing to declare it, because it would have been seen as purposely not declaring his financial position?

    Maybe he’d like to propose a policy of paying Willy Apiata and the SAS tax-free since he got top dollar for being driven around in his Ummer throwing out mango skins.

    wonder if this (which is far more serious), will carry on in the MSM for 6-8 WEEKS as lead story (or at least high on the list) as it did for John Banks?

      Nope, not a mutter, not a whisper, not a murmur…..

      • Troy

        Yup… will be interesting if Winstoned gets off his arse to say anything about Shearer’s memory loss… unlikely given that he himself is a master of delusion.
        In any case, how the fuck someone forgets that they have more than 50K sitting in a bank account is perplexing… i’m sure all his bludging supporters will be miffed.

  • If Shearer simply said how much was in there, brought it back to NZ and moved on….the media would too. He is keeping this alive.

    • sheppy

      Why would anyone bring money into NZ whilst Wussel has even a slight hope of getting near the treasury next term?

  • Ronnie Chow

    The amount . We want to know the amount .
