4:06 Stephen Franks and Sapna Samant are on The Panel. What the pilots in NZ have against bringing in foreign pilots to fly our planes. Have the drug cheats really left cycling?

Absenteeism from NZ schools, spending ratepayer money in Auckland teaching taxpayer etiquette. And a couple of topics around retirement.
