Williams Upfront - August 24 and 24 2005

Williams Upfront - August 24 and 24 2005

Wednesday & Thursday at 8.00pm,
SKY News Australia New Zealand, (SKY Channel 54)
Williams Up Front immediately precedes the SKY News screening of 3News at 8.30pm

Award winning broadcaster, Larry Williams, deals to current affairs in a straightforward and provocative manner. His "no spin" approach cuts through the rhetoric as he interviews the newsmakers and experts of the moment:

Wednesday 24 August - Justice

Do big tax cuts mean cuts to core services - will the thin blue line become even thinner? Or are all the major parties planning to enhance law and order policies? National's Tony Ryall and Justice Minister Phil Goff are in the studio with Larry to talk justice and all that it entails.
Guests: Minister for Justice, Phil Goff and National's Spokesperson for Justice, Tony Ryall

Thursday 25 August - It's all about tax

One thing is abundantly clear - this election is being fought over the purse strings, not the heart strings. National's long awaited tax policy, released on Monday has already drawn strong criticism from Labour - but the voters appear to love it.
Guests: Finance Minister, Dr Michael Cullen and National's John Key
