It’s that time of the week again whenand I co-host our ‘hoon’ webinar with paying subscribers to The Kaka for an hour at 5 pm. Jump on this link on Riverside (we’ve moved from Zoom) for our chat about the week’s news with special guests from the University of Otago on China's 'great wall of steel' and the big AUKUS deals; Raf Manji on TOP's plans & banks; Nicola Willis on RMA reform, a bank inquiry, GDP falling; and Chloe Swarbrick on the policy bonfire and Auckland Council’s unnecessary austerity programme.

See you shortly
