Shane Jones must jump ship for Labour
Jones is already actively looking for a job and should consider stepping down from Labour altogether to prevent the backlash from engulfing the Party.
I just can't see how there will be a pretty ending to this with the rumors and allegations flying thick and fast behind the scenes. Labour Party strategists must be aware it's only a matter of time before the right wing attack blogs get a smell of what is being alleged.
Carol Beaumont (not Carmel) is the next on the list which changes the math re leadership support but that is simply a risk that must be taken.
Political amputation is the best option.
