    Grant Robertson and back holes in the same cartoon, decency stops me from going further.

    But seriously , a smug gay Wellington lawyer is going to connect how with my life long labour voting parents. ?
    No fucking chance, is how.

    There may seem to Wellington residents that there is a constituency for smug gay Wellington lawyers but in reality there’s not, the base labour support will be turned off in record numbers, the christian island vote for one will be gone.

    Labour are toast until they get a Damien O’Connnor type- and thats not going to happen with the gaggle of gays and vile narcissists at the head of the labour party- and Little has no chance either – no common touch the elcetion showed that.

    Robertson seems to be taking on the shape of Lange I notice! :)

    Even Chris agrees:

    “Left-leaning commentator Chris Trotter wrote in yesterday’s Dominion Post that he had been wrong to back Mr Shearer. “Let’s face it, he ain’t anybody’s kind of leader.
    Unlike former prime minister David Lange, Mr Shearer could “barely string 10 words together”.

    Helen seems to have been purged! :)

    Perhaps Liarbore could offer a new form of leadership. Winner of election gets 6 months in the chair, next in line gets a year and the third on the party list gets the remaining time as head arse kicker. Surely anyone silly enough to lead this three ring circus should only have to do it for part of the time. Coming in third would make the rest lift their game least they come in third in the next election.

    Who the fuck is Grant Robertson anyway, I mean, what do we know about him other than the fact that he is gay and that he used to be a student president (whoop dee doo). In all seriousness, what exactly are his achievements in both his personal life and political life.

    Dick,

    He talks a lot about the Town Belt and the War Memorial. [Emphasis on talks]

    And about every 18 months or so, he visits a homeless shelter. [Evidence being his website up to the commencement of the election campaign]

    What more is required?

    PEB: well said Sir…and I assure you that up close (but not that close!) Robertson is no more impressive as a representative of the working man and woman…or a representative of anybody for that matter…Can you see him having a jug or two with Big Norm Kirk? Let alone some of the Labour giants of the more distant past like Fraser, Savage or Semple..

    But Shearer was doomed from the start…When he got elected he had about six months more experience in parliament than I had…and although my ego is as healthy as the next (ex) polly’s, I would never have thought in 100 years I could lead a political party after two years’ experience…His appointment was simply a sign of how utterly desparate they were…and probably still are…

    PEB, and same from me, agreed. labour, IMHO, cant have an overtly gay leader, the PI’s in South Auckland wouldn’t know what to do, and their church leaders would get bloody antsy I suspect. They were happy to turn a blind eye to the labour leader who “may or may not have opened for the other side”, but overtly gay AND a lawyer?

    That said, they might get a gay leader, but whether that overtly gay leader becomes PM is another story.

    You think the leech going from sucking on the taxpayer tit while producing nothing to sucking on the taxpayer tit while producing nothing worth while would be an improvement?

    I agree, the fact they went with Shearer was a sign of a party with few viable options. And those options have diminished since, there’s no sign of improvement in party strategy and there’s certainly no change in available candidates for leadership.

    Probably would depend too on whether said person has been totally unemployed or not.

    i think they should taiho on rolling shearer..

    ..those who were giving him the bad advice..nash and pagani ..have gone…

    ..(pagani was just advising him to do nothing..and just wait for national to lose..

    ..pagani is a reactionary-incrementalist…his departure is good news..)

    ..i wd wait and see what happens next..

    ..shearer actually sounded good on the politics report on nat-rad..

    ..he was letting rip against banks/key..

    ..and he had the fire in his belly many have been calling for..

    ..to ditch shearer now would be premature..

    ..time should be given for him to front-foot it…

    I hope they do go with Robertson. A smug gay union loving lawyer who visited a night shelter once, and was a student union president? jeez that is exactly what they need, that will really make everyone turned off by the smug gay union loving ex student political types vote Labour.

    Robertson is well trained by two??lesbians as their number three in their office – Helen Clark and Heather Simpson.
    Assume Maryan Street will be his deputy – two homos together.
    Great Labour !!
