Therefore I had been contemplating for some time who could possibly do it. All the possible contenders were either unsuitable or not ready. Then it dawned on me. Mt Albert's David Shearer.
He has an amazing personal story, leading UN humanitarian efforts around the world. Shearer's comparison with John Key is stark. Both men spent 20 years overseas making a difference: John Key working to make $50 million for himself, while David Shearer was working to save 50 million lives from war, poverty and famine. This one sentence tells us everything we need to know about these two.
Whatever Matt; paid off Unite's tax arrears to the IRD yet?
