I obviously have a different view.
The current position of RB is known and Stretton gave very many interviews when first appointed. Readers can obviously see much of where he is coming from and some of his aspirations are coming to fruition in terms of the emerging rep for next year.
I think it is interesting to look forward and measure perceptions/aspirations of what the future might hold. It's what polling organisations do and we see that all the time and even more so now with a general election underway. Some don't approve, others do. The reality is that polls happen because many are interested in the results.
I think there might be some concern that if people vote for a better tomorrow they may in some way be perceived as casting dispersions on RB's current position/management. I don't think that necessarily follows but in any case that's a separate issue and an interesting poll at some future time I should think.
Similarly if people have fears about the future (usually expressed as worries about Ashton and other heritage rep) they should vote accordingly and not feel they are being disloyal or not giving the new man a chance. Lots of words have been said and it *is* possible to form opinions.
Finally I note that Dowell himself is interested in the future and choose to mention some of his concerns in the recent Craine interview.
