On The Nation this week


On The Nation this weekend… Is there a housing crisis, and what should we do about it? National and Labour housing spokespeople Nick Smith and Phil Twyford go head-to-head on affordability, foreign ownership and capital gains taxes.

And with the fallout over Dirty Politics causing movement in the polls, we talk to New Zealand First leader Winston Peters and Conservative Party leader Colin Craig about what happens now they’re inching closer to five percent.

Then, a special report from Christchurch as we approach the fourth anniversary of the first earthquake that changed everything. What’s the political mood in our second largest city and what impact will it have on the election? Our reporter Lucy Warhurst investigates.

We’ll discuss all this and more with our panel: 3News political editor Patrick Gower, Hive News publisher Bernard Hickey, and Maori TV political reporter Maiki Sherman.

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