Politics podcast: Labour so blissy, Greens so messy, English so texty

Stop the election bus for just one second, please. Toby Manhire, Annabelle Lee and Ben Thomas have recorded a new Gone By Lunchtime podcast and it will probably be overtaken by events by teatime.

Two third-term Green MPs have in effect jumped ship, saying Metiria Turei is not fit to lead the party. Will that torpedo the party? Will it help or hinder a Labour Party re-energised by the Jacinda miracle? What about Bill English’s mysterious deleted texts? And just generally, what the bejesus is going on with this election?
