Given that we're helpful sorts by nature, we thought we'd help the Labour Party with its democratic process of revitalisation.
Accordingly, we've instituted a poll whereby readers can select their preference for the leadership of the Labour Party. We'll collate the results when the poll closes in a week's time, and we'll send them to the powers-that-be in Labour.
A good government needs a strong opposition; that's fundamental to the process of democracy. So there's a serious side to this poll. Labour will get one shot at re-branding, because if they don't make the right decision this time around, it's not going to help the party's credibility closer to the 2014 election if they have to admit that they got it wrong.
A huge weight of responsibility will fall upon the new leader and his deputy. They will immediately become the faces of the Labour Party. Will they be faces with which we are too familiar, or will Labour have the audacity to vote for the likes of David Shearer who is untainted by the baggage of a previous term in government?
An interesting fortnight awaits as the candidates put themselves forward. Take this opportunity to have your say.
