    A must watch programme which is doing what the MSM should be doing.
    Shearer? We have to stop his good guy image getting in the way of constructive criticism.
    As a newby on the block he has some serious communication skills to learn.
    First – stop licking his lips at the end of every phrase-sentence – one stops listening and counts the licks. Bit like people who end every sentence with “You know” and listening ceases and counting begins.
    His lack of political-historical knowledge – saying he was/is in favour of Rogernomics !!!!!
    Hasn’t he read Jane Kelsey’s -The NZ Experiment and Reclaiming The Future, Bruce Jesson’s – Only Their Purpose Is Mad and John Robinson’s series of books starting with – Destroying New Zealand – and that is just for starters.Thirdly, hire an expert to role play and video the hard questions he is likely to encounter and responding to the faults in his replies and how to sharpen his act.
    Stop denying, attack in response! “Show me the money should have been met with,”Show me the jobs” by Goff, with that debate possibly contributing greatly to the loss of the election. Who didn’t cringe at Goff playing buddies in the debates.
    More ?
