Politics podcast: Ardern promises delivery, Bridges prays for deliverance

The Gone By Lunchtime peloton roars into 2019.

Just as you’re wondering whether it’s too late to say ‘happy new year’, Annabelle Lee, Toby Manhire and Ben Thomas wish you a happy new year with a return to the Gone-pod.

On the agenda: A hell-poll for National sees Judith Collins casting a shadow over Simon Bridges, Jacinda Ardern begins the “year of delivery” with trips to Davos and Waitangi, KiwiBuild targets take the form of a house of cards, and relations with China go frosty.
