Synopsis of the Xmas Show


As parliament closes down for the year, National just wants to go home. But the Prime Ministerknows how to rally his troops, and organises one final caucus dinner to lift their spirits. 


Meanwhile Labour are more interested in trying to land some final points for the year, the Greens can't decide if celebrating the commercialism of Christmas is in line with their philosophy, ACT need to avoid unwanted xmas presents, United won’t choose which Christmas party to attend, the Maori Party and Mana look for a miracle, and Winston says “Bah humbug” to them all. 


Then a sudden spiritual reckoning begins to unravel everything…
