Mayor Phil Goff joins Millennial wastrel Hayden Donnell and Metro editor-at-large Simon Wilson to talk about the housing crisis, council culture, *that* headline about sleeping with the same woman for 45 years, and whether we should jail all Boomers.
It’s Warcast #9 and Toby Manhire is still in Whanganui, hanging out with New Zealand’s answer to Donald Trump, the Guru. Luckily, Metro editor-at-large Simon Wilson agreed to enter the War bunker in his stead, and join Hayden Donnell for an all-out assault on new Auckland mayor Phil Goff’s policy positions.
They talked over the housing crisis (Phil got quite fired up), council culture (Phil said it’s kinda bad), whether to deny Auckland 2040 their democratic rights (Phil said no), *that* headline about sleeping with one woman for 45 years (No comment), and Hayden’s radical proposal to jail all Boomers.
