Politics

A dramatic and devastating podcast with 10 days to go

The Spinoff presents its exclusive poll of the opinions of Annabelle Lee, Ben Thomas and Toby Manhire as New Zealanders flock to vote in chilled out Election 2017.

Toby Manhire welcomes Annabelle Lee of The Hui, Ben Thomas of Exceltium, and the spirit of Newstalk ZB legend Leighton Smith into the penultimate Gone By Lunchtime pod before voting day.

On the agenda: the gobsmacking Newshub poll, whether National’s campaign is working after all, Labour’s tax pickle, the Greens’ encounter with catastrophe, and the fortunes of the Māori Party. Also Gareth Morgan revs past on a motorbike, probably.
