Andrew Little has taken the labour leadership.

His ranking in the three electoral colleges (% = weighting)

Caucus (40%): 4/4
Party (40%): 2/4
Affiliates ie Trade Unions (20%): 1/4

He was the caucus's least preferred candidate but now he is their leader.   

Seems viable.




Mike

Sorry to interrupt Mike, but in breaking news, there is some paint drying on a wall across town.

The change will only mean something if the Party changes.

God help any business if he ever gets near power. 

Saw his true colours when he was involved with the EPMU union.

of only four of his colleagues supported him. That’s half the support David Cunliffe managed.

I know a couple of people who dealt with him over unions said he was "seriously seriously bad news". 

This from a guy who I have never known to say a bad word about another person in the 10+ years I have known him.

I better run a sweepstake as to how long he lasts before being rolled by David Parker.  I certainly cant see he will be leader at next election as there is still too much infighting and unrest in the party
