The Weekend Panel with Jane Clifton & Richard Harman

From Sunday Morning, 8:39 am on 16 August 2020

Our weekend panellists Jane Clifton and Richard Harman offer their thoughts on the past week's news from Aotearoa and abroad. Covid-19 is once again at the forefront of our minds, and there are questions looming whether the general election should be postponed. Meanwhile National's Gerry Brownlee obliquely suggested the government held back information about community transfer of Covid-19, a suggestion called 'complete nonsense' and 'irresponsible'.
