One term Labour MP Grant Robertson has announced he will be standing for the deputy leadership and supporting fellow newbie MP David Shearer as leader of the Labour Party. The Herald reports “Mr Robertson said although Mr Shearer did not consider it a ticket, ‘I’m certainly supportive of him and when you talk to him, you’ll find he’s supportive of me'”
The Labour leadership has become a very interesting race.
A) An experienced pair of hands bringing forward fresh faces
B) New faces with the backing of the previous leadership
Which way around should it go? Did anyone see the debate in Hamilton, and what were your impressions?
