Toby Manhire, Annabelle Lee and Ben Thomas ruminate on the New Zealand political cud. 

Simon Bridges has come under fresh pressure after botching a press conference around the resignation of MP Jami-Lee Ross, which both insist is unrelated to the inquiry into a leak of the National leader’s expenses details. The Gone By Lunchtime trio chew on that, before issuing the definitive assessment of Jacinda Ardern’s New York turn at the United Nations and talk-show sofas, as well as the challenges she faces at home in the form (see eg Meka Whaitiri, Clare Curran, Winston Peter).

Warning: contains scatological imagery.
