Christopher Luxon’s first few days will be seen as a reasonable success, but we’re yet to see which policy directions National will take under his leadership, particularly with climate.

Business commentator Rod Oram told Heather du Plessis-Allan Luxon should speak with Paul Polman, his old boss at Unilever.

“Getting Polman here, who is a very serious and distinguished businessman who is completely on this issues and on to it and can talk very coherently about it, I think would be a very important message for all New Zealanders to hear, not just businesspeople, but particularly National, who call themselves the party of business.”
