The Herald reports:
Outgoing Labour MP Mita Ririnui is backing Shane Jones as the party’s next leader should it lose November’s election.
While Mr Ririnui did not offer names about who needed to go, he was prepared to offer opinion as to who the next leader should be.
“There has been a lot of coverage around three particular people: David Cunliffe, David Parker, Shane Jones, and to be honest Shane Jones is my preference.”
Having incumbent MPs openly tell the media who they back for the next leader is just another sign of the real lack of discipline within Labour. It’s good for Shane Jones though.Tags: Labour Leadership, Mita Ririnui, Shane Jones
