Q+A listings - Sunday, August 19th 2012


This week on Q+A, does anyone have the right to own water? John Key says absolutely not. But next week, the Waitangi Tribunal will tell the Government what it thinks. Shane Taurima speaks to Maori Council co-chair Sir Eddie Durie, and Iwi Leadership Group member Haami Piripi – what do they actually want, and how far are they prepared to go?

Plus, the “Beast of Blenheim”, Stewart Murray Wilson is being released into Whanganui amidst outrage from locals. How far will they go to prevent him from moving in? Mayor Annette Main explains what the council is trying to do to give him his marching orders.

And former Prime Minister-turned-New Zealand Ambassador to the U.S, Mike Moore, on how our relationship with the U.S is really going. He speaks to Greg Boyed about our chances for a trade deal and what the Americans expect from us in Afghanistan.

He’s then joined by political scientist Jon Johansson from Washington DC. Johansson’s just spent the past month driving through 26 different states and gives his typically smart and humorous take on the upcoming presidential election. Mike Moore offers a more “PC” view on who’s going to win.

Joining Dr Raymond Miller on the panel, former ACT leader Rodney Hide and National Urban Maori Authority Chair and talkback host Willie Jackson.
