Political commentators Neale Jones and Brigitte Morten join Kathryn to discuss the 'innovative' policies coming from National, including the 'first 1000 days' policy for new parents.

As Greens' co-leader James Shaw's mea culpa drags on, where has the damage been done? And does Winston Peters' swipe at Labour over Covid mean he's struggling to get a coherent message out for the election?

Neale Jones was Chief of Staff to Labour Leader Jacinda Ardern, and prior to that was Chief of Staff to Andrew Little. He is director of Capital Government Relations.

Brigitte Morten is a senior consultant with public and commercial law firm Franks & Ogilvie and a former senior ministerial advisor for the previous National-led government. During the election campaign Brigitte is volunteering on the National Wellington Central campaign for Nicola Willis.
