Shearer was wishing he was standing there when it happened

Shearer - More Stirring


Yesterday in parliament David Shearer had a ‘mare. His GCSB question backfired first, when John Key sprung him for a secret meeting over the GCSB bill. Grant Robertson looked like a stunned…snapper…perhaps the whiff of the warm snapper beside his desk had wrinkled his nose…David Cunliffe couldn’t believe his ears and Russel Norman looked like the proverbial bloke who walked in on his missus getting tupped by his best mate.

Then there was the snapper debacle where out of his sleeves David Shearer produced two dead snapper, and one looked decidedly undersized. The stunt failed and Twitter went nuts mocking the hapless idiot standing there with two warm dead fish

Shearer was clearly looking for a hole to fall into by this stage and miraculously one appeared just down the road. if only it had opened up under him right there in parliament…perhaps he could have salvaged something from the whole debacle.

Part of a street in central Wellington has been closed off after a sinkhole opened in the road.

A section of Hobson St in Thorndon is expected to remain cordoned off until at least Monday, after the three-metre square sinkhole was discovered.

Wellington City Council did not believe it was caused by the earthquake but said the collapse of a stormwater drain was the likely explanation.

“It might be the result of a broken stormwater pipe, that’s basically collapsed by the sounds of it,” council spokesman Richard MacLean said.

“It looks like we’re going to close the street to through traffic until Monday.”

      Trevor Mallard. The one human being most emblematic of the working man elevated well above his station.

      • Hazards001

        You cannot use the words Trevor Mallard and working man in the post and be taken seriously.

        • IWantToBeLikeMallardOneDay

          He should be a working man. He’s definitely no thinking man.
          I don’t think he’d be much use to anyone outside of government, so he’s best referred to as a “shirking man”. Happy? I’m not… Who elects these people! ;-p

          • Hazards001

            I’d be happy if the prick was doing what he is qualified to do. Our office building needs a good dunny scrubber!

          • IWantToBeLikeMallardOneDay

            You missed my point, sir. He would be a terrible dunny scrubber. He’d unionise all of the existing dunny scrubbers before mulcting their dues to the maximum and shortly after he’d start an in-work side business selling scalped tickets whilst occasionally rooting one of the ugly old Maori women who’ve worked there for years before him. Furthermore he wouldn’t even be decent enough to take off his toilet cleaning rubber gloves before sideling up behind the new employee (a group whom he is sure to believe must be compelled to conduct themselves in an obsequious fashion towards him due to his credentials and seniority), to finger her.
            Have some standards. There are some very keen dunny scrubbers out there who will serve you much more faithfully.

   apologies …you nailed it!

  • maninblack

  • Ducky

  • Liberty

    Is that a labour
    party fund raising rally?

  • Personally, I blame Kim Dotcom. Shearer shouldn’t have agreed to share a stage with him on Monday night because everything has gone downhill since then.
