FOUND: David Shearer
BEEN SAYING WHERE IS DAVID SHEARER FOR MONTHS. TURNS OUT GRANT ROBERTSON ATE HIM.
SO MANY WELLINGTON POLITICS HOMOS HAVE TOLD ME GRANT IS GOING TO STAB SHEARER AND TRY TO TAKE OVER THE LABOUR PARTY IN A FEW WEEKS. GRANT HAS A REALLY FAT MOUTH. STRANGE THE CUNT MSM DON’T REPORT IT.
UNFAIR IF YOU ASK ME. PEOPLE NEED TIME TO BUILD RATINGS AND SHEARER ONLY JUST GOT ELECTED LEADER. LABOUR MPS SHOULD BE HELPING NOT SHITBAGGING HIM TO POLITICS QUEENS.
SO INTERESTING TO FINALLY SEE THIS ON STUFF TODAY. GODS LABOUR SUCK. VOTE GREEN.
Chief of staff Stuart Nash has quit after just a few months in the pivotal role, mostly for personal reasons – a new baby and the commute from Napier. But insiders say he was ill-suited and clashed with chief press secretary Fran Mold over strategy. She pushed for a (relatively) higher profile, arguing the Greens and NZ First leader Winston Peters would fill the vacuum if Mr Shearer left one.
Finding the right replacement for Mr Nash is crucial, especially with the key party secretary job expected to be vacant soon when Chris Flatt leaves.
There is no clear favourite for either job, although policy guru Jordan Carter is tipped as secretary, while the Wellington rumour mill favours Wellington lawyer Alastair Cameron as chief of staff.
Both are closer to deputy leader Grant Robertson than Mr Shearer.
That has fed the conspiracy theorists an obvious line: if Mr Shearer’s low-key style does not boost Labour’s fortunes, his deputy’s allies will be in place to move.
SAD ABOUT STUART NASH. HE WAS THE BEST THING IN LABOUR. HE CAN STILL FUCK MY FACE ANY TIME.
