Comment of the Day

You have a real point Lesley. You don’t get a lot of obviously homosexual blokes or lesbian women among the warlords of Somalia so it may have just been a lack of experience in handling those sort of people that eventually proved to be Shearer’s downfall.  — DavidW

  • They should leave the leadership chair empty , they are a party of the people after all … . . . … . . . lead by the headless beast anyway … . . .

    The perfect leader for the Labour party? The guy who stops all those guys from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy from bitchslapping each other to death.

  • It’s obvious Shearer was at the mercy of his party , leader ? , not a chance in hell M8!
    Anyone with an IQ over 150 knows leadership by committee favours the lowest common denominators , unless a leader steps in … . . . …

    Those committees must be lead DC ;-

    I understand uncle Rajen Prasad is emerging as a consensus candidate…..

    • The sad thing is that your parody and reality overlap too much….

        Rajen Pissy Prasad has a vision for New Zealand, he tells me….

    Gok Wan is the ideal leader, release the inner woman in all those poofter blokes. Bit of lippy, some manscaping. That would also give the frumpy old dears something to aim for. “C’mon Darien, Grant looks way better in those heels than you do”

    • Gok’s fan dango

      no can do, He ( Gok) is a she-male, Man ban does not allow that ! New Labia leader must be a female.

      • Patrick

        I bow to your obviously in depth knowledge of Gok’s “fan dango” & the workings of the inner sanctum of the Labia Party.

    I like what Chris Finlayson had to say:

    Attorney General Chris Finlayson said Shearer was a “good man” who he liked very much, who had great experience in dealing with civil wars and humanitarian crisis. But that was not enough to prepare him for the Labour leadership.

    “Nothing could have prepared him for dealing with this lot,” Finlayson told reporters.

    “The Labour Party caucus is probably the most feral and unpleasant group of people you could ever have to deal with.”

      Great sledging indeed.

      “The Labour Party caucus is probably the most feral and unpleasant group of people you could ever have to deal with.”

      Really? What about the Greens and Mana?

    So who in Labour knows how to handle the Labour homosexual blokes or lesbian women? Andrew Little? No too close to union blokes. David Cunliffe? No he is too much of a “man bloke”. It only leaves one more………………………………….

    Coatsworth for Leader, she looks real bad.

    • LesleyNZ
