Politics podcast: Auckland, Māori Party vs Helen Clark, kiwifruit and sheep

Parliament may be enjoying the longest recess of all time but the Spinoff’s Gone By Lunchtime podcast is 100% sitting, friends. Joining Toby Manhire in the futuristic audio-pod are Annabelle Lee and Ben Thomas

Among the fat being chewed: Auckland Unitary Plan adventure (but only briefly; if you like that sort of thing, there’s more UP-podding here), the Māori Party utu-treachery-treason over Helen Clark’s bid for the UN top job, the prospects of Māori-Mana Party unity breaking out, Todd McClay’s apology to the PM over steel and kiwifruit and that so-called “trade war” with China, Saudi sheep, (non) legal threats and Murray McCully, and the David Bain (non) compensation.
