Why Labour needs a leadership contest

Labour got a hiding in the most recent election. It also got a hiding in the 2011 election.

It got soundly beaten in 2008.

It has lost its direction, appealing to the bludger and whinger class, not the working class.

That’s why Labour needs a leadership election.

It needs its leadership contestants to outline how they will win back middle New Zealand.  

And how they will stop people thinking that Labour only care about beneficiaries, the working poor, poofters and lezzies and other minorities.

If it just anoints Grant Robertson as leader it will fail.

Grant is tits at fundraising, looks like a double chinned, cardy wearing civil servant from Wellington and has been the strategic brain between Labour’s last two election failures.

A leadership election would also allow Labour the time to get their version of Pinko Farrar to do the polling and research necessary to see if a poofter can be prime minister.

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.
