Labour have bounced back well from the disastrous election result. Key ended last year floundering in the swamp of his own lies, while Little’s “cut the crap” summed up the public mood. Little’s ratings are now the “best since Clark“, and Labour is up in the most recent poll. Labour now has the platform of a by-election to get some early focus on its new team, and while concrete policies are likely to be few, we should hear a lot about Labour principles.
So far so good. But how does Labour keep the momentum? How do they win back public support in the high 30’s or better? Where to from here?
