In this new edition of Gone By Lunchtime, Toby Manhire, Annabelle Lee-Mather and Ben Thomas weigh reshuffles in senior ranks of both the big parties, as well as Oranga Tamariki and David Seymour’s End of Life Choice Bill. Plus: a desperate plea to listeners.
Podding against the clock, aka Annabelle’s stopwatch, the Gone By Lunchtime trio reshuffle their portfolios, look at Jacinda Ardern’s demotion of Phil Twyford from the big housing job, and Amy Adams’ decision to chuck in the old politics lark.
Also on the slate: Oranga Tamariki and the uplift scandal, and the progression of legislation that would allow assisted dying to its third reading.
Oh, and do you fancy writing us a jingle? It’s time for a change.
