Labour Leadership and the Glass Ceiling?

The Listener runs profiles of the five people who will be contenders for the Labour leadership. Cunliffe, Parker, Jones, Shearer & Little. There are no women.

Can any Labour people explain why Labour have gone from having a strong leader and a strong operations person as a leader to having no women as leadership contenders?

Did Clark rebuild the glass ceiling as soon as she crashed through it, or did she not bring new talented women into the house? And are there going to be any good women who can challenge for the leadership in the future?

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
