WARNING – viewers will be exposed to Paula Bennett’s abhorrent politics.
But the rest look interesting,
Kelvin Davis, deputy leader of Labour
Marama Davidson, of the Greens
Shane Jones, of New Zealand First
Marama Fox, co-leader of the Māori party
David Seymour, leader of ACT
Gareth Morgan, leader of TOP
They will speak on whatever we ask them, with particular emphasis paid to transport and housing, via the Spinoff Auckland editor Simon Wilson and Māori issues, via former Mana editor and current Kaupapa on the Couch host Leonie Hayden.
“You can say whatever you like,” said Toby Manhire, looking flustered, when asked for a quote for this announcement.
As we get closer to the election the two main parties are breathing in all the political oxygen, leaving the minor parties gasping. This will be a rare opportunity to see all the fish, big and small, on one stage – savagely spiking one another in a desperate attempt to get some coverage. It will be very good, that’s something we can almost promise.
