I do not think that there is any doubt about the genuine mistake Mr Shearer made in omitting the $50,000 account he had overseas. I believe he has not tried to deceive anyone.
I am not surprised that The Prime Minister has tried to make political capital out of the event either. I am sure that Labour would have done the same if the reverse were true re any politician on the Government side.
So let’s not get bogged down in political twaddle and ho-hum---spend time on something that matters; like Novopay or the housing crisis just to name two issues.
Politicians will always play the game; but please not at the expense of concerns that matter!
