    Neale and Trish look at the Government's expression of concern about China's promotion of a doctored image of an Australian soldier holding a knife to an Afghan child's throat. The statement has prompted China's Foreign Ministry to query what the incident had to do with New Zealand. Also the Maori Party leaders' speeches, and the Prime Minister's declaration of a climate change emergency and committing to going carbon neutral by 2025. Neale Jones was Chief of Staff to Labour Leader Jacinda Ardern, and prior to that was Chief of Staff to Andrew Little. He is the director of Capital Government Relations. Trish Sherson is from corporate affairs firm Sherson Willis, and a former ACT press secretary.

Great listening

I enjoy this podcast. Hooton is outstanding.

Toddler wrangling

Interesting debate but I wish RNZ would replace Hooton with someone who behaves less like a spoiled toddler throwing his toys out. The listeners deserve better.
