This weekend on The Nation… Finance Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Bill English on whether the Government is going to reach its much-heralded surplus this year despite being buffeted by global economic headwinds, whether he believes the findings of the Inspector-General’s SIS report, and what he makes of Cameron Slater.
Then the chair of the Glenn Inquiry, Bill Wilson, talks to Lisa Owen about the newly released People’s Blueprint, what’s needed to fix our domestic violence statistics, and whether the recommendations will ever see the light of day.
And the Maori Party’s new co-leader Marama Fox… where has she sprung from and what are her ambitions? We sent our reporter Lucy Warhurst to find out.
We’ll discuss all this and more with our panel: PR consultant Scott Campbell, Dirty Politics author Nicky Hager, and columnist Toby Manhire.
The Nation on TV3, 9.30am Saturdays and 10am Sundays.
