1. MOTHER ROW - A mother of seven has been dragged into the centre of a row between National and Labour. She appeared on Labour advert saying she had only $50 a week to live on.

The woman is not being paid by WINZ what she is entitled to and the move has backfired on National.

2. ECONOMY - Two pieces of good news for the Government. There are more people in work and people are spending more. Unemployment is down to 6.8%. Not all good news some regions still have higher unemployment, but all regions are below 10% for the first time. Political leaders have different views on the figures.
