Unfortunately for Shane this has been done before…by David Shearer: 


Who nicked the slogan from Massey University:554508_10151577201867466_1423203070_n

Come on Shane, you are better than this.

  • Wasting your breath Cameron, not one of them has the spine to speak their mind, let alone done the thinking required to actually say something worthwhile.

  • Never in the dark…..

    I read that slogan and think of how it worked for the New South Africa. Most are worse off than before. …….just saying…..

  • BJ

    Such double speak is ridiculous.

    You can’t have a new new – it’s either new or it isn’t. And to have anything truly new you have to cancel out all of the old or you just get more of the same.

  • Harry B’Stard

    So incongruous next to a face that’s like an old boot

    • LabTested

      That’s whats new. They have stopped using Photo Shop

      • OT Richter

        Looks like they are now using Potato Shop

        • Harry B’Stard

          brilliant :)

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    When they have a talented person like me to help out, why do they struggle? Beats me every time….

    I love how “new” is being promised by a scowling chubby man with greying temples and a penchant for hotel porn. Completely the wrong look for poor Jonesy.

    Imagine if he said “politically incorrect, and proud of it”, or “Promoting your working class values”.

    • Not Mark Richardson

      If he becomes Robertson’s deputy do we assume it’s gay porn we pay for?

    • Harroputza

      If I had a stroke and somehow ended up in the Labour party and a leadership candidate, my slogan would be, “Workers, not intellectuals.”

      Then I would set about systematically attacking and haranguing all of the limp-wristed “MA in political science” hangers-on who have made Labour a party for the lazy and people with nowhere else to go and not the workers.

      • FredFrog

        “If I had a stroke……”

        Shane had several, and on our dollar too.

          Yes I almost spilt my coffee when I read that first line..Gold right there!

  • cows4me

    It’s really quite sad but I guess those that the slogan is directed at are gullible and will swallow such dribble. Jones shows as much imagination as his party offers in new policy. Here’s a new slogan for you Shane “labia the new normal”

    • Mr_V4

      I don’t even think the gullible would be susceptible to such a piss-weak “slogan”.

  • richard.b

    It was all a mistake, he stuttered when he was talking to the PR guy.
    Hes lucky it did not end up as “A N. N. N. New New Zealand”

  • Agent BallSack

    Considering its Shane Jones, we should count ourselves lucky the slogan isn’t ‘Anal New Zealand’. Perhaps Robertson had dibs on it.

  • Whafe

    The PR team are like the Lada Marketing Team back in the early 80’s…. Sort your shit Liabour

  • A NEW new slogan required here. Don’t listen to the Greens, recycling isn’t always the best option.

  • Micky

    Not sure if he’s trying to look presidential, if so, it’s not working. He looks like he’s just discovered someones farted close by.

  • Lion_ess

    “Don’t Switch Dicks in the Middle of a Screw, Vote Nixon in ’72”

    BTW I don’t mind the photo – he doesn’t look like a mummy’s boy.

  • David Tocker

    This grumpy looking old prick has some new ideas?
    The filter makes him look very red faced indeed.. or perhaps he just whipped one out in the hotel room? Not very often that you can take the piss out of someone because you know they are a genuine “wanker”

  • Phar Lap

    For a happy 2014 and a happy NZ vote John Key and National,two ticks.

    As opposed to NZ First’s vision: An Old New Zealand

  • lofty

    Call him what you like (and I have from time to time) but out of the 3 contenders, Slow hand is my personal preference.
    At least you now what you are getting..warts and all.
    The other 2 are duplicitous to say the least.
    He is closer to ordinary NZrs than DC or GR and also closer to traditional Labour, in my humble opinion.

  • Col

    Should read a Nude New Zealand.
    I will give free to view porn for all who vote for me.
    I don’t know about you guys but getting caught with your pants down shall we say, not really leadership stuff, I don’t think you can fix that. My thoughts anyway.

  • bobby

    A new New Zealand? And to think they had the cheek to call the 100% Pure NZ campaign false advertising.

  • steve and monique

    Cool. A new NZ without Labour. Sounds like something I would support.

  • robodude

    Maybe blue is the new red, or is it a tie…

  • unitedtribes

    Sad but I thinks he’s the best they have. At least he want regulate everything.
