Policy treats, super sagas - election turmoil continues

From Morning Report, 8:11 am on 30 August 2017

The election campaign's contest of ideas and policy is at risk of being overshadowed by political intrigue.

Fresh twists in the Winston Peters superannuation affair and Prime Minister Bill English's involvement in the Todd Barclay saga yesterday took attention away from big policy announcements by Labour and National. 

Political commentators Bronwyn Hayward from the University of Canterbury and Scott Campbell of public relations firm Campbell Squared Communications join Morning Report to discuss National's extension to paid maternity leave and Labour's tertiary education policy.
