Shearer supporting February leadership vote?

A facebook page has been set up promoting a party wide Labour leadership vote in February:

February Democracy

We are New Zealand Labour Party members committed to a party wide, open and transparent leadership election in February 2013.

For our party to move forward, there must be a sense of justice. The kind of justice that comes when the members feel that their voice has been heard. Let us give the leader a strong mandate to take into the 2014 election. Support February Democracy.

It’s interesting to see that David Shearer has ‘Like’d this page.

I wonder if Shearer knows exactly what he’s supporting.

A Red Alert comment promoting it (indicating Shearer’s support) has also been allowed to stay on a Grant Robertson post  Annual Conference- It’s the constitution, it’s the vibe….

UPDATE: “The Team at February Democracy” (on Facebook) has advised:

I would like to confirm that at this stage David Shearer, nor any other MP, has ‘liked’ the page.

    David Shearer hasn’t liked the page. All that indicates is that whoever runs the page has liked David Shearer’s Facebook page.

    • You may be right about what that indicates, but George has claimed that Shearer likes the page. I’ve messaged asking for confirmation of that, no reply yet.
