I for one welcome our new Iggy overlords
I believe the events of the last 48 hours is probably the best outcome that could have been salvaged out of the situation. We have a leader with caucus support, wh0 will be secure in the job for quite some time. Is the way the situation resolved perfect? No, of course not. But we as a party have to make due with what we have, and move forward together. The constitutional, procedural thing was done. Those who talking about the grassroots being disenfranchised do have a valid point, however, and I believe one of Iggy's top priorities should be to re-engage with the grassroots, opening up any new policy process. I believe Rae's suggestion of utilizing our online resources here would be valuable.
