Labour leader Andrew Little has begun broadening Labour's
image as as the "jobs party," not just a party for working
labour, but for wealth-creating business, especially small
business, and for those who want to be their own boss.
The union backing of Labour leader Andrew Little in last
year's leadership contest did not translate into hard cash -
he got no donations of more than $500 and raised a total of
just $5000 to $6000 compared with the $18,000 raised by Grant
Robertson and $23,000 by David Parker.
Labour leader Andrew Little and Prime Minister John Key are
both gearing up for their state of the nation speeches on
Wednesday in which Mr Key is expected to flesh out National's
new social housing policy while Mr Little will set out to woo
Aucklanders and business.
