Both major parties have made big promises on welfare, work and how to strengthen Kiwi families.
So tomorrow Guyon Espiner has two interviews – National’s Paula Bennett and Labour’s Annette King. We’ll talk about jobs, welfare reform and what’s best for our children. And we’ll reveal an exclusive Colmar Brunton poll on what New Zealanders think about National’s plan to require parents who have another child on the DPB to start looking for work when their youngest child in one year old.
In our series on crucial electorates this election, Damian Christie is in Waitakere. Paula Bennett is seeking to retain the seat she won by just 632 votes in 2005; Carmel Sepuloni is trying to win it back for Labour and Mana’s Sue Bradford is trying highlight issues of poverty and unemployment. Three tough women in a tough tussle for votes.
And finally, Paul Holmes talks to Tamaki Makaurau candidates and Maori leaders Dr Pita Sharples of the Maori Party and Shane Jones of Labour.
Joining Dr Jon Johansson on the panel
are UNITE union leader Matt McCarten and New Zealand Herald
columnist Fran O’Sullivan.

Ever baulked at spending an extra couple of dollars to buy free range eggs instead of battery farm eggs. SUNDAY has obtained film shot in some battery hen farms and it should be enough to loosen your wallet!! Conditions have been described as appalling …enough to put you off your eggs bene and bacon. Cages which don’t comply, skinny malnourished hens, dead hens, mountains of bird droppings, vermin and right there amongst it all …the eggs which end up on your breakfast table. So who’s enforcing the rules? Who’s keeping our battery hen farms honest?

When the King of Pop died two years ago there were only two people in the room …. Michael Jackson himself and Dr Conrad Murray.
Tonight our exclusive story uncovers the fatal friendship behind the headlines and the chain of events that led to one man dead, the other’s professional reputation in tatters and the Dr himself in jail.
Now , just days after Dr Murray was found guilty of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson, Murray breaks his silence and talks about his relationship with Jackson and events of the day Jackson died. We also explore the private and surreal world of Jackson where the controversial use of powerful medication was a way of life, where a man adored by millions lived as a virtual recluse, where an unknown cardiologist from Texas found himself the unexpected companion, confidante and intimate to one of the most famous men in the world.
