David Shearer’s stepped down – and not been rolled (well, formally. Someone had to pull the trigger and I never thought it would be him.)
I’m pretty much with No Right Turn’s train of thought – to resign the day after a really high-profile piece of legislation passes which has serious potential to damage the government, and turn the media attention to a leadership scrap (because any time there’s no anointed successor, it’s going to be a scrap) seems like a really bad idea. But would there ever be a good time to go?
I guess we’ll just have to sit tight for four weeks to figure out what, if any, new direction a new Labour leader might take. Anyone for popcorn?
