Politics podcast: the Gone By Lunchtime Christmas Party 2016

ho-ho_ho_001

An old year, a new prime minister and a very tired world. Toby Manhire, Annabelle Lee and Ben Thomas bedeck themselves with boughs of holly and size up the winners and losers of the year 2016, and what to expect in the next one.

Ho, ho, ho, really, when you think about it.

Ben and Annabelle sit on Santa’s knee and tell him what they make of Bill English so far, struggle to remember the previous PM’s name and survey precisely everything that happened in politics in 2016. That covered, they move fearlessly on to what 2017 holds for Winston Peters, Marama Fox, Andrew Little and the rest.
