The big gamble

So, Andrew "I might quit" Little has gone ahead and actually done it. And Jacinda Ardern and Kelvin Davis have drawn the short straw of trying to save the Labour Party from another historic defeat.

Good luck. They're going to need it.

Ardern is a breath of fresh air in a political system dominated by bland old men. And hopefully that will be enough to salvage Labour's vote to something respectable. But Labour are a long way from victory and are going to have to fight incredibly hard to get there. Unlike Little, Ardern looks like she will at least try.
