On The Nation: Murray McCully, Police, US Elections
This weekend on The Nation...
Foreign Minister Murray McCully talks to Tova O’Brien in New York about what opportunities the Iran deal creates for New Zealand, whether the families of the MH17 victims will ever get justice, and he has stern words for the world’s superpowers.
Then Police National Response and Operations Manager Superintendent Chris Scahill responds to criticism of the forces’ move to arm all its frontline officers with tasers.
Lisa Owen interviews Time managing editor Nancy Gibbs about the US Presidential primary, the Trump factor, and whether we’re all victims of information overload.
And in the last few generations women have been making strides in the workplace and in education, so why are their numbers so dire in traditionally male occupations like IT and engineering? Our reporter Lucy Warhurst takes a look at why there aren’t more Michelle Dickinsons, aka Nanogirl, and what she’s doing about it.
We’ll discuss all this and more with our panel: former Labour Party president Mike Williams, Metro magazine writer Simon Wilson, and former Act Party MP Heather Roy.
The Nation on TV3, 9.30am Saturdays and 10am Sundays, and 7pm Saturdays on Radio Live. Proudly brought to you by New Zealand on Air’s Platinum Fund.
