Labour will not ever win alone in an election. The reality is that Labour will need ot work with 'strategically similar' parties. Sometimes the differences will not be minor, but Labour must find middle ground. Given this, the language used to interract with other parties must change, from the innane, to something resembling working political alliances.The simple fact is that Labour must work closer with the Greens, The Maori Party, Mana and New Zealand First. Get used to the new reality, Labour!
