Wouldn’t it be weird if Shearer’s MPs weren’t plotting to replace him?

That’s a fair point!

Incidentally the Listener has a nice profile of Danyl and his new blog.

    Yes, it would be very weird, everyone expects it’s just a matter of when.

    The only surprise the other night was “Oh, it’s now is it”. And the only question was “I wonder who’s got the gumption to go for it”.

    Answers – no and no-one.

    Colin Espiner has a very similar coup story… Anatomy of a coup
    …to Garner – Cosgrove proves Garner’s coup claim

    So that’s the current biggie isn’t it:
    “__” says Shearer should be dumped!
    “__” says Shearer should be dumped!
    “__” says Shearer should be dumped!
    “__” says Shearer should be dumped!

    I have a bit of an issue with writers and politics as the brilliant writing can disguise a weak argument.

    Maybe the coup is stalled because they all want him gone, but no-one wants the poisoned chalice.

    “David, d’you want it?” “Maybe next December”
    “Grant?” “Not just now”
    (Mallard: “Me! Me! Me!)
    “Andrew?” “Not today thanks”
    “Jacinda?” “I’m not quite ready, thanks”

    Wouldn’t it be weird if all the political writers put their attention to important issues?

    Is the Labour Party important? Why? Is an opposition important? Why? Are there motives for outsiders who have this current manic interest in the Labour party?
    Is the crazed excitement of anti-Labour bloggers because with the demise of that party, the way will be even more clear for the present Government to carry out its “good work?”

    Wouldn’t it be weird if all the political writers let us know why they think this is an important issue so we could get a sense that it is more than some sort of weird, frenzied, lemming-like, incestuous orgy where they want to be part of the fun and are scared of missing out?

    Shearer’s MPs are more like the high school cadets. But listening to Sousa’s high school cadets is more upbeat than watching Labour Party’s infight and self-destruction, which is good for National (Labour lite).
