In denial

David Shearer thinks he is paddling down a large river in denial.

Labour leader David Shearer has been forced to deny allegations of division amongst his party caucus. 

Mr Shearer, who appeared TVNZ’s Q+Athis morning following Labour’s successful Ikaroa-Rawhiti by-election result, was quizzed about the allegations and reports of a possible party leadership challenge.

“I’d like to know who the MP is,” Mr Shearer said in reference to reports some MPs had told media their could be a challenge to his leadership within two months due to poor polling results.

I note he seems to be on a bit of a witch-hunt as the clock ticks down on his leadership.

    labor is the man, the greens are the mistress and the public are the wife… incase you needed explaining.

      I’ve always seen it as: Labour is bent over, Greens are ‘feeding it’ and the public are clapping.
