Dunn Street founder and Community Organiser Stephen Donnelly was joined by former Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern Chief of Staff and Managing Director at Capital NZ, Neale Jones.
Neale dials in from Aotearoa to provide an update on NZ politics as we prepare for the general election on 14 October.
Neale talks about Labour’s new policy direction under new PM, Chris Hipkins, and how he framed Labour’s election campaign at the party’s National Congress held this weekend in Wellington.
He reflects on how New Zealand’s current economic conditions will shape the election campaign, cost of living and framing National-Act alliance as the coalition of cuts.
We also discuss polling, caucus deserters and sausage rolls.
