Warcast #4: real-life cabinet minister Nikki Kaye and shock council superhero Bill Cashmore


Polling expertise from David Farrar and insightful chats on the mayoral race, the council budget and tensions between the government and Super City. All that and more on the latest War for Auckland podcast.

Joining marine commandos Toby Manhire and Hayden Donnell in the fourth War for Auckland podcast are the Auckland Central MP and insurgent cabinet minister, Nikki Kaye, and Franklin’s councillor-overlord Bill Cashmore. Plus: a special appearance from leading pollster and National Party insider David Farrar.


What did Cashmore say about the time Hayden called him an invisible nobody? How did Kaye respond when badgered to admit Auckland has a housing crisis? What does Polling Dave have to say about margins of error? Did Cashmore really need to serve up that excruciating pimple-squeezing analogy?
