Nine To Noon: Political Commentators – Jones and Thomas – 18/10/21


Cabinet will today review the alert level three settings for Auckland, Northland and parts of Waikato. Despite the Super Saturday event which saw almost 130,000 doses administered, current modelling shows it will take Auckland just over a month before 90 percent of the population is fully covered, this as fatigue with restrictions sets in. Neale, Ben and Kathryn also talk about the Government’s draft emissions reduction plan.

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

Ben Thomas is a PR consultant and a former National Government press secretary.

Of course RNZ chose to use ultra political partisan Neale Jones as the political commentator from the left for this segment.
