Welcome to the /r/newzealand weekly thread to discuss all things politics – global, domestic, local and anything politics related. Basically anything you might say in the daily discussion that is politics is not prohibited in this thread.
This is the place to: post spicy NZ politics memes, discuss the corruption of the DNC with your Kiwi comrades, ask a serious politics question, ask a silly politics question, share your favourite political quotes or pics from the week, let others know about an upcoming event, tell us what happened on this day in NZ politics history.
