Politics podcast: waka jumping, fuel taxing and rumour mongering

Back once again with the renegade bluster, the Gone By Lunchtime team climb many flights of stairs in the cause of NZ political discourse. 

Just when we thought Annabelle Lee was never going to respond to another message, the Spinoff’s most acclaimed politics podcast returns. The garlanded producer of television’s The Hui is joined by PR flack Ben Thomas, Spinoff middle manager Toby Manhire and leading subversive Waimihia-Rose to discuss the issues, including pressure on the Jacinda Ardern led government over Winston Peters’ beloved waka-jumping bill, te reo in schools, the performance of the National opposition and its boozy off-the-record functions, fuel tax, Grant Robertson’s first budget, and the verdict on the coalition’s first six months. And, of course, those Clarke Gayford Rumours In Full.
