3.40  Robbie Burns Day
Tonight in Dunedin they're marking the birthday of the great scottish poet Robbie Burns...the poet who's always had a special place in the city's well as his statue in the middle of the Octagon.
He'll be honoured with the Burns Supper at the Otago Early Settlers Musuem - in which nae doubt there'll be some whiskey consumed, a haggis addressed, and a word or two of the bard recited.
Up to 100 people are expected at the gathering, and the man who'll be addressing the haggis is John Steel, who's done it a few times now.

4:06 On The Panel, Chris Wikaira and Steve McCabe.

We'll analyse the PM's state of the nation speech, in particular the steps towards affordable housing. Receiving $10,000 compensation for distress from the Employment Relations Authority. Blankets or duvees, what do you use? The duvee dominates now, but blanket supporters are fighting a rearguard action. Should racism in Fawlty Towers be expunged? The BBC's bowlderising the "Don't mention the war" episode. And Jimbo the American Staffordshire, he'll be put to death now finally for killing the rabbits and trying to fight the other dog. Are they executing Jimbo for doing what dogs do?
