This week on The Nation


This weekend on The Nation… the ink is drying on John Key’s support deals, but what will they achieve? Lisa Owen talks to Act’s David Seymour, United Future leader Peter Dunne and Maori Party co-leader Te Ururoa Flavell about their new jobs and what’s in store for the next three years.

Then Labour MP Andrew Little fronts up with his prescription for Labour’s rebuild. And, if he stays in Parliament, could he be a dark horse entry in the leadership race?

And with two out of five children living in poverty growing up in homes with working parents, is a job no longer enough to get people off the breadline? Our reporter Lucy Warhurst talks to people who are doing everything right but still not getting ahead.

We’ll discuss all this and more with our panel: RadioLive’s political editor Jessica Williams, former MP and radio host Willie Jackson and New Zealand Herald columnist Fran O’Sullivan.

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