Mark Patterson – Meet the Newbies

In episode six of Meet the Newbies, I talk to NZ First’s one south island based MP, Mark Patterson, a former farmer from the Clutha-Southland electorate, in this twelve minute interview. We talk about his switch from National to NZ First, how it feels being placed ahead of sitting MPs on the party list, and his conflicted opinions on what to do with the number of MPs in the house.

COMING UP ON MONDAY: I talk to the new baby of the house, 23 year old Chloe Swarbrick, and what her advice is to today’s youth.
