Labour turns 100

Labour is 100 years old today.

So it's a suitable time for the Labour Party to celebrate the past and contemplate how to turn things around in the future.

Obviously the popularity of former Prime Ministers Michael Joseph Savage and Helen Clark are reason to celebrate. State housing achievements, homosexual law reforms and progress towards equal pay are also things to raise a glass to.

What about the future? Since their heavy defeat at the 2008 election, the party's had four leaders and Winston Peters is even more popular than current leader Andrew Little.

So how does Labour go from the opposition benches to Government and is Andrew Little the man to do it?

Labour Leader Andrew Little joined Mark Sainsbury, filling in for Paul Henry.
