John Tamihere on Q+A:
PAUL Yeah, but we’re now 2012, as I say. I mean, do you think David Shearer’s got to really reshuffle that front bench? I mean, you can’t honestly look at that front bench and think they’re performing well as an Opposition.
MR TAMIHERE That’s true, but he’s also got to look to 2014 for the list.
PAUL It’s critical, because this week – you take this week. Bad week for the government. Should have been. More Dotcom coming left, right and centre at the Prime Minister.
MR TAMIHERE You’ve got me. There’s no doubt—
PAUL Wilkinson’s reversal on Mike Tyson.
MR TAMIHERE Front bench is not firing.
MR TAMIHERE Across the whole line, whether it’s health, welfare or education, and those are the biggies. …
I’m surprised Tamihere named specific portfolios where he claimed Labour front benchers are not firing. That will not endear him to Maryan Street, Jacinda Ardern and Nanaia Mahuta.Tags: Jacinda Ardern, John Tamihere, Maryan Street, Nanaia Mahuta, Q&A
