Politics podcast: Gone by Slushy Time


Is the bond of trust and confidence between Mihingarangi Forbes and Annabelle Lee-Mather as strong as that between Judith Collins and Simon Bridges? In the latest Gone By Lunchtime, also featuring Toby Manhire and Ben Thomas, we investigate over a cool, refreshing slushy.

Special guest Mihi Forbes joins the usual rabble to discuss the fallout from Jacinda Ardern’s controversial captain’s recall on capital gains tax, the ongoing speculation around Simon Bridges’ leadership and the rabbits that need to be pulled out of the slushy in Grant Robertson’s second budget at the end of the month. They also gargle the icy issues of the crackdown on social media post-Christchurch and bullying at parliament.
