Labour Should Be Preparing For New Attack From Far Left

Matt McCarten writes a strange opinion piece today in the HOS. We can only intepret this article as an attempt by Matt to woo Labour into a false sense of security. Note the reference to opponents on the left

If Labour continues to deliver to its working-class constituency, it may well win. Obviously, National can't offer a big tax cut if Labour has already given it away. The Government's Free Trade Agreement with China won't harm it much. Any traditional left opponents to the deal are likely to vote Green anyway, adding to the centre-left total numbers.
So the Labour Party faithful who turned up to Wellington this weekend should have been pretty confident they were in with a chance for a fourth term, despite the earlier long odds.

Where are Matt and Laila's plans to set up a new party on the left????
