On Backbenches last night, Wallace Chapman asked all the MPs whether they supported VSM, including Labour MP Shane Jones. A transcript:
Wallace: Should we have VSM for student unions?
Shane: Yeah, yeah we should
It’s great to have one Labour MP speak out in favour of VSM, despite his party having an ideological stance against it.
But it does also point to the crumbling discipline within Labour. On Tuesday a Labour MP reveals the entire Maori caucus wants Goff gone, and on Wednesday another MP reveals he disagrees with his party on an issue which they have spent all year fighting tooth and nail.Tags: Labour, Shane Jones, VSM
