In an interview this morning Jacinda Ardern suggested GDP growth would be positive despite not knowing the figures. Criticism has been swift - but are we being too harsh towards an innocent mistake? The Greens have broken rank with the government and criticised the decision to extend New Zealand's presence in Iraq. Are we putting membership in the Five Eyes network above our governmental principles? The organisers of a Women in Law summit in Auckland today have barred the media from attending, saying speakers were worried about what journalists would report. Do they have a point? Did you know health and safety legislation protects you against excessive noise? WorkSafe is launching a new set of tools to help workplaces manage their noise better, so we got chief executive Nicole Rosie in to tell us a bit about them.
