Unionist Helen Kelly left a huge impact on New Zealand’s political and industrial landscapes, with some commentators hypothesising after her death that she might have been Prime Minister one day. Helen’s biographer Rebecca Macfie (Tragedy at Pike River Mine) speaks with writer and trade unionist Morgan Godfery (Te Pahipoto) about the life, times and legacy of a woman who ‘never shirked a fight’, whether it was with the Ports of Auckland or with hobbits, and who earned the humour and respect even of those she so vehemently opposed.
