Across the Tasman: Peter Thiel & Jacinda Arden’s 33 page coalition document

Posted on: Mon 18 Dec 2017

It’s been almost a year since documents revealed that billionaire Peter Thiel was controversially granted New Zealand citizenship in 2011, after spending a short 12 days in the country.

According to then Minister of Internal Affairs, Nathan Guy, ‘His skills as an entrepreneur and his philanthropy made his immediate citizenry fall under “exceptional circumstances”‘.

In other news, Kiwi chief ombudsman, Peter Boshier, has confirmed that Prime Minister, Jacinda Arden, does not have to release a 33 page coalition document.

Our New Zealand correspondent, Mackenzie Smith, joins us this morning to discuss the latest stories and 2017 highlights from across the Tasman.
