Gone By Lunchtime

Bill’s big super bang-bang, the rise of Jacinda and timeless Winstonian truths

March 6, 2017

In the historic first ever Spinoff Gone By Lunchtime podcast since the arrival of LifeDirect as sponsor of the politics section, we discuss a range of important topical issues, before eventually making it to politics.

On the agenda:

• Bill English announcing a change in superannuation qualifying age a mere 23 years from now;

• the political management of that change;

• calls for an inquiry into abuse in state care;

• Jacinda Ardern's Mt Albert triumph and rise to Labour deputy, the departure of Annette King and the leadership of • Andrew Little (including that kaupapa Māori thing);

• whether the best thing to be in the Green Party today is an old bloke; and

• Are the stars aligning for a storming year for Winston Peters and NZ First?
