How convenient that Rich has resigned right after Helen Clark has announced a series of fantastic policies including the issue of tackling housing affordability.  The media will probably be all over Rich’s resignation rather than focussing on the good work the Labour Party is planning to help people, including enabling people to own their own houses, the rolling out of “B4 School checks” to detect and assess how children will cope in school, “School Plus” – lifting the age of participation in school or other forms of education to 18, a new funding model to assist Non-Governmental Organisations working in our communities, support for victims of crime, and a whole host of other policies in other areas like health and supporting New Zealand families.
