Bomber's Citizen-A: Selwyn Manning Vs Matthew Hooton Debate

Bomber Bradbury's – Citizen-A: The Manning Vs Hooton Debate!

Martyn "Bomber" Bradbury delivers his weekly current affairs programme Citizen-A!

Citizen A this week Featuring Bomber Bradbury, Scoop's co-editor Selwyn Manning and NBR columnist Matthew Hooton.

1: Rugby World Cup transport fiasco - who is to blame for decades of infrastructure underfunding and why didn't the Government see this coming?

2: CPAG have put out their latest report, more children in poverty and things are getting worse. How do Military bootcamps that don't work, and, sending mothers out to work when the child turns one solve that?

3: The private prison at Wiri now costs more than a publicly funded prison - despite Judith 'Crusher' Collins claiming that this prison would generate income. Has Auckland been sold a private prison lemon?

Plus there's a final word from each of the panel.


Citizen-A broadcasts on Sky channel 89 & Freeview channel 21 on Thursday and Sunday evenings. Also, check out Bomber on Facebook...

The show broadcasts weekly on Triangle/Stratos TV and on Scoop. Bomber also posts on the Tumeke! blog: www.tumeke.blogspot.com.
