6a00d83451d75d69e2019b00aaa23d970c-800wiLabour’s annual snooze-fest took place at the weekend, the usual motley collection of wizened older cynics, opportunist thirty- and forty-somethings and a smattering of naive young people who think they belong to something left-wing.  TV pictures tended to indicate it was a rather small affair.  This dreary bunch of ‘alternative’ managers of the interests of the exploiting class continue to wallow in the polls and party leader Cunliffe especially so.  The ruling class aren’t yet ready to trade management teams, as they were in 1984 and 1999.  Maybe 2017?  Although Labour are long-proven to be no alternative for workers, chunks of the left chatter on about a “Labour-led government”, as if this would be some kind of positive alternative to Key and National.  And parties like Mana are up for doing business.
