Warcast #6: Generation Zero expose the good and terrible council candidates


In fits of democratic exhilaration, Gen Zero and the Auckland war bunker celebrate the start of the Auckland local elections, and explain their imperious plans to tell you how to vote.

On the day voting papers begin to dribble into the letterboxes of the Super City, Spinoffistas Toby Manhire and Hayden Donnell are joined by Generation Zeroites Veronica Veen-Grimes and Leroy Beckett to preview their respective online enterprises designed to help – or, in the case of the Spinoff, browbeat – you in your electoral duty.

They also do some mayor-based chat, survey the wards with the best and most pitiful assembly of candidates and deliver a stirring rendition of the single greatest jingle in the history of NZ local body politics.
