Hello! The mobilisation of (some) farmers to protest illustrates a deep divide in NZ, just not the one being protested. Farmers are thought of as National's original rock, but with the last week acting as a highlights reel of decades of politicisation, misinformation, scaremongering and shortchanging, is this relationship healthy at all? Meanwhile, Auckland airport goes kaput due to fossicking. Oh what a to do. And there's an election going on, so we need to talk for perhaps the last time about TOP's silliness. What have the polls got us thinking? Will the final week of the campaign be a carnival of horrors? Who knows. The die will be cast when we all meet again.
