Today NZ First MP Richard Prosser made some stupid and grossly offensive comments. Naturally, the Parliamentary press gallery have been asking other politicians about them - including David Shearer. So, did Shearer take the opportunity to make a public stand against racism and define himself as a decent person (and leader) by saying that if Prosser was in Labour he would stand him down? Of course not:
David Shearer says Richard Prosser's comments were "offensive and completely inappropriate" but wouldn't say if he would stand him down.
Like I said, have no convictions, make no commitments. Completely and utterly useless.
