The Panel with Miriama Aoake and Neil Miller (Part 1)

From The Panel, 4:03 pm on 12 June 2018

Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un met a few hours ago in Singapore - the first ever meeting between the sitting heads of their respective states. Our panellists discuss what, if anything, will come of it. The justice minister Andrew Little remains optimistic Three Strikes will be repealed, despite New Zealand First apparently pulling its support - if it was even there in the first place. Winston Peters is going ahead with legal action against a bevvy of civil servants and Opposition MPs. Otago University's Andrew Geddis joins us to talk about his possible motives, and whether the soon-to-be Acting Prime Minister has a legal leg to stand on. A new report says early intervention is the best way to steer children away from crime. The findings are nothing new - academics have been beating this drum for three decades - but little has changed in that time. Dr Alison Sutherland joins us to talk over a similar report she authored 15 years ago.
