AmeriNZ 407 – The circus begins

amerinz_podcast_1400x1400-2016New Zealand finally has a circus—whoops!— I meant a government. The three parties finally managed to strike a coalition deal. The new parliament was sworn-in this week, and everything now begins. I talk about that first. By the way, I was right: The tradition of not entering the Debating Chamber goes back to the time of Cromwell, because of Charles 1. Then, I talk about what I’ve been up to, especially how busy I’ve been.
