Political animals: Revealed – the Panda Selection Process


Unnamed sources linked to the notorious Piers Gaveston Society and Edward Snowden have exclusively revealed to The Spinoff Politics clues to the process by which the Government will select a new animal to take up residence at Wellington Zoo.

An independent expert panel will be appointed to consider a wide range of suitable animals for all New Zealanders, with four options selected for voters to rank in a postal referendum.

The following slides were sent to The Spinoff as heavily encrypted Snapchats.
