There’s been a lot of news here in New Zealand, but the two biggest stories were probably not widely reported overseas. So, first I begin talking about sport (yes, really!): The America’s Cup and the British and Irish Lions Tour to New Zealand. I mainly talk about stuff that provides some background and context to those stories, and why they matter for New Zealand.
The New Zealand general election is drawing ever closer, and a new poll is out. How did National and Labour fare? How did New Zealand First, which I talked about last time, do? And, what does all of this imply for the results of the election?
