Someone pre-registers Shearer for MRP shares

Related

It may be a joke, but Labour leader David Shearer is furious someone has used his name to register for Mighty River Power shares.

Over 285,000 people have registered their interest in purchasing shares.

But all it takes for the initial stage is an email address.

Someone has registered Mr Shearer twice, despite him ruling out ever purchasing shares.

He says it shows how shonky the process is - that people could register their cats and dogs and their neighbour.
