Today the New Zealand Labour Party will select a new leader. This new leader must work with the people to develop a shared sense of direction for our country - one that all feel part of - or at least enough people to win the election in2014. Some how the party has to connect with over a million voters who couldn't be bothered voting - more people than those who actually voted for the winning National Government.
The new leader must begin such a journey and give courage for others to join the adventure.
These are the issues that ought to be exercising the minds of those electing a new Labour party leader today.
