Politics podcast: Key and NZ as tax haven, Labour’s woes, and Helen Clark UN bid

Going off like a frog in a sock, the third edition of the Spinoff politics pod, featuring Annabelle Lee and Ben Thomas with Toby Manhire

A brand new Gone By Lunchtime is here – unless you’re reading this some time in the future, in which case it will no longer be brand new. On the slate: John Key, the Panama Papers, and a U-turn on reviewing foreign trusts; the continuing struggles of NZ Labour Party as it approaches its 100th birthday; and Helen Clark’s campaign to become the secretary general of the United Nations: not as universally popular in New Zealand as some seem to think.

All that, along with ruminations on the craft beer scene and songs about special rapporteurs and changing nappies, on Gone By Lunchtime. Listen below, download here on iTunes, or here on Stitcher:
