This week on The Nation


This weekend on The Nation… Prime Minister John Key gives his first long-form interview after being sworn in for a third term. We’ll ask about his new focus on housing and child poverty, and whether New Zealand boots will end up on the ground in Iraq or Syria.

Then, with a week until the United Nations vote on New Zealand’s bid for a Security Council seat, what’s the inside word on our chances? Lisa Owen talks to international affairs analyst Jeffrey Laurenti from New York.

Labour MP and former UN staffer David Shearer gives us his perspective on the vote and the Labour leadership race. And then there were three….the would-be Labour leader, MP Andrew Little, shares his vision for the party.

And with a star rating system for food about to hit the supermarket shelves, Lucy Warhurst investigates whether it will work.

We’ll discuss all this and more with our panel: Metro editor Simon Wilson, PR consultant Matthew Hooton, and former Green MP Dr Sue Bradford.

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