I'll begin ALP leadership profiles as soon as I can think of a catchy title for that post series...

UPDATE: Here's the news story. His blue and yellow leadership website has launched and I already got got an invite to his "Dave Taylor for leader" facebook group (it looks like he'll have a strong youth team judging from the names who have joined). For anyone wondering, I don't intend to get involved with any of the campaigns - none of the rumoured candidates really excite me and I think it will be nice to just observe from the sidelines for a change.

UPDATE DEUX: I got just got the press release from the launch. Among the interesting tid-bits:

1. The campaign slogan appears to be "A New Way Forward".

2. 26 year old Corey Hogan is the leadership campaign manager.

3. As for Dave's three pillars of the New ALP? “business friendly, fiscally responsible, and socially progressive.”
