The Panel with Lynda Hallinan and Chris Gallavin (Part 2)

From The Panel, 4:05 pm on 14 August 2018

Californians are furious over the new electric scooter craze, with some chucking scooters into the sea. There's even an instagram account dedicated to celebrating the destruction of the scooters. Meanwhile in Paris, locals are disgusted over the decision to install eco-friendly urinals, in the open, on the Île Saint-Louis, with tourist boats passing on the Seine. Some have even called the urinals discriminatory because only men can used them. The panelists weign in on the outrage. What the Panelists Lynda Hallinan and Chris Gallavin want to talk about. Habitat for Humanity is flat out making curtains for low-income households to keep the cold out this winter. There are more than 100 families on the wiating list. However the Housing the Urban Development Minister Phil Twyford says unless the curtains are installed precisely, they won't do much good. We ask Dr Lucy Telfar-Barnard, from the Department of Public Health at the University of Otago, whether this is true and whetehr curtains can help keep in warmth in. Tomorrow 29,000 primary and intermediate school etachers will go on strike over pay. It's expected to affect more than 400,000 children. We ask Helen Varney President of the Auckland Primary Principals Association what parents can do with their children tomorrow and whether after-school providers should be encourgaed to help parents out with childcare. We'll aslo ask if she believes the Government offer to teachers must be doubled.
