Politics pod: a completely comprehensive dissection of 2017

An incredible year, or the second half of it at least, for NZ politics. The Gone By Lunchtime bus parks up for one last time before going in to the garage, and settles all the matters.

Jacinda Ardern! Bill English! Metiria Turei! Winston Peters! Those are the names of some people who were in the political news this year. Ben Thomas! Annabelle Lee! Toby Manhire! Those are the names of some people who in the last GBLT of 2017 talk about the people above, and conclusively decide how they got on.

May also contain: emotional tribute to Leighton Smith and awkward exposé of a non-disclosed participant in the clutches of political figures.
