12:30 Stephen Jacobi, Execuative Director of the New Zealand United States Council.

A dream team of polictians from both sides and heavyweight business leaders will be heading off to the States to drum up a closer relationship with America. There's obstacles to reaching a Free Trade Agreement with the States, of course, nuclear weapons and New Zealands position on the current war in Iraq. What's Jacobi got to say?

1:15 Sam Murphy, Editor of The Epoch Times.

Parishioners of Falun Gong in New Zealand have asked the Government to bar the entry of a Chinese Politician accompanying the Chinese Primer on his visit this week. In fact they've even sued Bo Xilai, having filed the documents with the High Court yesterday. But what is Falun Gong and what is it exactly Bo Xilai is accussed of doing?

1:40 Gerald Morunga, manager of The Clubhouse bar.

With Parliament debating raising the drinking back to 20 from 18, The Clubhouse bar in Taupo has jumped the gun. From last weekend the bar was no longer letting people under twenty into its premises. A senisbile move to protect the more mature patrons from silly young folk, or a serious case of discrimination?
