On The Nation this week

the-nation-logoOn The Nation this weekend… Lisa Owen will speak with Hone Harawira from the Mana Party conference in Rotorua about Kim Dotcom, election year strategy and some of their more controversial policies.

Then 3News political editor Paddy Gower talks to Finance Minister Bill English in his last major pre-Budget interview and asks him if the Government is still on track to record a surplus, what kind of Budget sweeteners he’s looking at and whether the improving economy is filtering down to the pockets of ordinary Kiwis.

And what impact will Twitter have on the election campaign this year? Our reporter Torben Akel finds out.

We’ll debate all this and more with our panel, blogger Morgan Godfery, New Zealand Herald columnist Fran O’Sullivan and Radio Live presenter Sean Plunket.

The Nation on TV3, 9.30am Saturdays and 10am Sundays.
