Q and A - Line up Dec 2


Sunday 2 December 2012

On Q+A this Sunday, a special event for our final programme of the year. Q+A: Ideas for NZ.

We’ll be broadcasting from The Cloud on Auckland’s waterfront, debating the pros and cons of eight big ideas to change New Zealand.

In a fast-paced programme hosted by Greg Boyed and designed to spark conversation, we feature eight of the country’s top thinkers offering their ideas to make our country better.

Federated Farmers Chief Executive Conor English, Otorohanga mayor Dale Williams, Massey masters student and former advertising exec Tracey Lee, PowerbyProxi entrepreneur Fady Mishriki, Tourism Industry Association boss Martin Snedden, Chief Executive of the New Zealand Venture Investment Fund Franceska Banga, Lanzatech co-founder Sean Simpson, and Mainfreight Managing Director Don Braid all have diverse ideas that will make you think.

To turn our usual format on its head, the politicians will make up this week’s panel to debate and dissect the eight ideas. We’ll be joined by National’s Judith Collins, United Future’s Peter Dunne, Metiria Turei of the Greens, New Zealand First’s Winston Peters and Auckland mayor Len Brown.

Q+A, 9-10am Sundays on TV ONE and one hour later on TV ONE plus 1.

Thanks to the support from NZ ON Air.

Q+A is on Facebook, http://www.facebook.com/NZQandA#!/NZQandA and on Twitter, http://twitter.com/#!/NZQandA

Gordon Campbell: On The Ch-Ch-Changes At IRD

job cuts aren’t happening at the IRD, exactly. Instead, there’s apparently a ‘transformation’ in store, and jobs won’t be axed ; no, they will be ‘transformed’ before our eyes into… non-jobs, if you happen to be among the unlucky legion of 1,900 who are being lined up for transformation, which seems to work rather like a secular version of the Rapture.

Except that at IRD, not even your shoes will be left behind. More>>
