Gareth Mor­gan is a man with a plan. The econ­o­mist and leader of The Op­por­tu­ni­ties Party – who signs his emails with a rogu­ish dad pun (“TOP of the day to you”) – has kept his recipe for im­prov­ing the coun­try re­fresh­ingly... eco­nom­i­cal. Seven poli­cies span tax reform to cli­mate change un­der his ban­ner, which is un­can­nily sim­i­lar to the also-ran Red Peak flag. Mor­gan – Trade Me founder, au­thor, phi­lan­thropist, motorcycle en­thu­si­ast, feral cat neme­sis – is a man of many facets. We sub­jected him to a Sun­day Grill.
