Q+A, Sunday 20 October: Economy, NZ First, Len Brown
On Q+A This Week
SUNDAY 20TH OCTOBER, 9AM
There's talk of New Zealand being the star economy next year. Does that mean tax cuts and what will it do to interest rates? We speak to finance minister Bill English about what it means for you and me.
Also on the programme, we're at the New Zealand First party conference. Twenty years after the party was launched, will it be the kingmaker after next year's election or is another party about to steal their voters? We talk to leader Winston Peters about that and retirement.
And as the pressure continues to mount on Auckland mayor Len Brown following revelations of an extra-marital affair, we ask whether he can survive unscathed and look at the motives behind the expose.
On the panel this Sunday, political scientist Dr Claire Robinson from Massey University, Unite Union's Matt McCarten and former National Party president Michelle Boag.
